Rajinikanth's 'Robot 2' has already been a hot buzz since its announcement with speculations doing rounds that 'The Terminator' star Arnold Schwarzenegger might play the antagonist.
However as per sources the deal failed to work when Arnold asked for a high remuneration of Rs.120 crore. A Times Of India report quoted a source as saying, "The team has finally decided to rope in a Bollywood actor to play the baddie. The deal with Arnold Schwarzenegger didn't work out for various reasons. Hence, the makers decided to move on as the project was getting delayed."
Further as per a DNA report the makers have approached Hrithik Roshan and Neil Nitin Mukesh to play the villain. However nothing has been finalized yet.
