Director Shankar is giving it all he has when it comes to making ‘Robot 2’ the biggest Indian movie ever. Last week, we had heard news that Hollywood star Arnold Schwarzenegger was being cast as the villain for the film for a whooping sum of 100 crores and now there are reports that Bollywood legend Amitabh Bachchan has been asked to be a part of the film.
A source said, “Shankar has a very khulasa (frank) role for Bachchan Saab in Robot 2. Bachchan Saab and Rajini Sir have immense mutual respect. They have been on the look-out to work together for the longest time.”
The dynamic duo has already done huge films like ‘Hum’ together and were last seen sharing space in the year 1985 for the film ‘Geraftaar’.
This effort is being put because even though Robot was a gigantic hit in the south, it didn’t work well in the other regions. This time around, they are aiming for a Pan-India cast to target the entire country.
