We had earlier informed you that Hindi star Akshay Kumar might replace Arnold Schwarzenegger to play the villain in Rajinikanth's upcoming flick Enthiran 2. Now, the same has been confirmed from sources close to the project.
Also, a picture taken during the first day shoot of Enthiran 2 has Akshay posing with the cast and crew of the high budget sci-fi thriller, which is bankrolled by Lyca Productions.
What the photo also reveals is Rajinikanth's get-up for the movie. Going by his looks, it looks like the superstar is reprising his character Vaseegaran - the role of a scientist who creates 'Chitti' the robot in the prequel (Enthiran).
Ever since the news that Akshay Kumar would be making his Tamil debut in Enthiran broke out, #AkshayInRobot2 has been trending in Twitter, all over India.
However, it is to be seen if the combination of Rajinikanth and Akshay Kumar works out in favour of the film. Enthiran 2 might hit the big screen in 2017, according to a source.
