Reel Buzz: Rajni to do Shankar’s Robot?

The hottest news that is making rounds in Kollywood is about the teaming up of superstar Rajnikanth and ace director Shankar for the second time.

According to sources the project is Shankar’s dream sci-fi venture Robot which he announced with Shah Rukh Khan a few months ago, since the subject required a national star. The project which was supposed to be produced under Shah Rukh Khan’s home banner Red Chillies was dropped for various logistic problems, which the director himself confirmed.

Now the buzz is that after the stupendous success of Sivaji, it became easier for Shankar to approach the superstar and it is believed that he also completed one sitting of the story narration. While Shankar has confirmed that talks are going on with the superstar, nothing has been finalised. The film is produced jointly by Mumbai-based Eros International and Ayngaran International, an association that was mediated by producer A.M.Ratnam.

If sources are to be believed, this could be the most expensive project ever made in the country. Shankar, who has clout in Mumbai, is trying to rope in the latest Bollywood sensation Deepika Padukone to act opposite Rajnikanth. A.R. Rahman has been confirmed as music composer for the film. Official announcements, according to sources, will be made during the silver jubilee function of Sivaji.
