As may be recalled, Shankar whose last film with Rajinikanth, Shivaji – The Boss, was a blockbuster (both in South as well as Overseas), had first offered the lead role to Shahrukh Khan. The project did not take off with SRK due to creative differences regarding the script. The next we heard was that Aamir Khan was offered Robot, but refused it and Shankar then went back to his trusted lieutenant, Rajinikanth.
However, Aamir Khan has categorically denied that he was ever offered the 100 crore Robot! The actor perfectionist also advised that people should concentrate on his next release, the Ghajini remake, instead of baseless rumours. That should clear up matters, once and for all. Well, we cannot say about others, but we are surely excited about Aamir Khan's action extravaganza, the Ghajini remake!
