Though director Shankar himself has not spoken about his next project, reports regarding his upcoming film with superstar Rajinikanth have failed to terminate as Enthiran 2 has been in the news for a very long time.
Interestingly, Enthiran 2 has managed to create lots of buzz even before its official commencement and the latest report pertaining to the high budget sci-fi flick will make your jaw drop.
Earlier, we had reported that Shankar might rope in Hollywood star Arnold Schwarzenegger to play the film's main antagonist. Now, it is widely speculated that Lyca productions, the company that will be bankrolling Enthiran 2, are willing to pay 100 crore rupees to the 'Terminator'.
It is said that the film, which will be made with a whopping budget of 300 crore rupees, is aimed at wooing movie buffs across the globe and thus the team is trying hard to get the ever so popular Arnold, who is known to almost everyone on the planet, on board.
Few reports have also claimed that Lyca productions are currently in touch with the Hollywood superstar and that they might actually convince him to be a part of Enthiran 2. Will they manage to rope him in or will Arnold turn down the 100 crore offer? Stay tuned to know.
Meanwhile, check out the slides below to know more about this ambitious project.
The report also has it that Arnold has put forward a condition that says Enthiran 2 should have a worldwide release just like his Hollywood flicks for him to star in the movie.
It all started when Arnold expressed his interest to work in a Shankar directorial at the audio launch of I. Since then, reports involving the Eraser star has been doing the rounds.
Kamal Haasan's Rejection
Shankar initially requested Ulaganayagan Kamal Haasan to play the role of the antagonist in Enthiran 2. However, Kamal went on to reject the offer.
Aamir Khan's Issues
Aamir Khan had initially agreed to be a part of Enthiran 2. But, the role of a 60-year-old wrestler in his Hindi flick Dangal demanded him to gain weight (98 kg) subsequently forcing him to back out of Enthiran 2.
When Vikram Was Rejected
After Aamir walked out of the project, it was reported that Shankar turned towards Vikram, who was more than happy to accept the offer. However, Lyca's involvement in the project might've prompted Shankar to opt for a bigger star.
Heroines For Enthiran 2
While the makers are yet to zero in on the female leads, few reports have claimed that they might approach Bollywood actresses like Deepika Padukone and Katrina Kaif to be a part of the flick.
