Reports emanating from Kollywood say that Hollywood great Arnold Schwarzenegger and Bollywood queen Katrina Kaif would play the villain and heroine (respectively) in superstar Rajinikanth’s next film, which would be the sequel to the super-hit Enthiran: The Robot which released five years ago.
Rajini had essayed dual roles of a scientist and a ‘Robot’ in Shankar’s mega-hit Enthiran which had Bollywood’s Aishwarya Rai-Bachchan playing Rajini’s heroine to perfection. Shankar, whose last directorial venture was the Vikram-Amy Jackson starrer Ai which released a few months back, is now said to be planning to make a sequel to Enthiran.
The shoot of the film, which would be made in a grand manner, is likely to commence in January next year. After names of Ajith Kumar and Bollywood’s Aamir Khan did the rounds for playing the lead role in the sequel, it has now been finalized by Shankar that Rajini himself would be playing the lead role in the sequel too. It is said that Arnold, who attended last year’s audio-launch of Ai, is likely to play Rajini’s villain in the film.
Arnold had openly expressed his willingness to work with Shankar during his brief speech at the above-said event. It seems that his wish would come true with Enthiran II which is likely to have Bollywood’s picture-perfect Katrina Kaif essaying Rajini’s heroine. No confirmation, however, has so far been made from sources close to Shankar.
