Though speculations were rife that International star Arnold Schwarzenegger might make his Indian debut in the upcoming Rajinikanth starrer Enthiran 2, the makers of the film never confirmed the news officially, and for good, it seems as they might've given up on the Terminator star.
Owing to Arnold's insistence on making changes to the script by roping in a Hollywood screenplay writer, Shankar finally decided to replace him with a popular Hindi actor to play the negative lead in the film, it is said.
According to a report, sources close to the Indian film-maker have revealed that Shankar had no other option but to drop the idea of roping in Arnold as the Hollywood star was a hard nut to crack, when it came to convincing him with the current script.
If Arnold is really shown the door, it has to be seen whom Shankar approaches next for the all important role. It is to be noted that actors like Kamal Haasan, Aamir Khan and Vikram were initially approached to play the baddie in the sci-fi thriller.
Is it Amitabh Bachchan next? Perhaps yes.
