Rajinikanth’s mega movie ‘Robot 2’ (Endhiran 2 in Tamil) was on the lookout for a suitable antagonist for some time. They had first approached Hollywood superstar Arnold Schwarzenegger to play villain but his demand of 120 Crore INR soured the deal. Now as per the sources, Bollywood action hero Akshay Kumar has been cast as the antagonist against Rajinikanth.
The movie was finally floored on 16th December and it is set to release in the middle of 2016. This will be Akshay Kumar’s first taste of the Tamil film industry. At this moment Akshay’s remuneration for the film is under the wraps.
