According to Sujatha's original script, En Iniya Iyanthira and Meendum Jeeno (A sequel of En Iniya Iyanthira) there is only one heroine, Nila (name of the character). But for Robot, it is said that Sujatha accepted to create another female lead character. In original script, the character of a Robot Dog is almost getting the equal importance of the hero. It will also be modified by the writer. The discussion has already completed, now there are few alteration done by the writer as suitable to Rajini.
According to the buzz, Nayantara and Deepika Padukone are said to be the two heroines of the movie. While Nayantara, who played Superstar's pair in Chandramukhi, is tipped to become his pair again, it is rumored that the latest Bollywood sensation Deepika Padukone will do an important role. But nobody is ready to confirm the role of Deepika in Robot. The production house told that the cast and crew will be decided by Shankar and Rajini only.
Meanwhile, Trisha and Asin also tipped as usually for the lead role of this film. On the technical side, so far the director has confirmed his art director Sabu Cyril only. Sources said that Shankar has invited Nirav Shah, the stylish cameraman of Billa-2007 for this project. Another source says that it is Manikandan, the cinematographer of Om Shanthi Om will crank camera for Rajini's Robot.
Above all, some portals report that the name of Robot will be changed to get the tax benefit from Government of Tamil Nadu. But when we enquired the same, the production house told that they will not have any such idea since it is a multi lingual film!
