Schwarzenegger in Rajni film

SchwarzeneggerTamil filmmaker Shankar has signed the `Terminator’ star Arnold Schwarzenegger for his sci-fi sequel. Shankar’s Rajinikanth starrer Enthiran (Robot in Hindi, Robo in Telugu), was touted as India’s most expensive film, until SS Rajamouli’s two-part fantasy drama, Baahubali, broke the record.

The director is now set to raise the stakes with Enthiran 2 with Rajini reprising his role in the sci-fi drama. What’s more, Terminator star Arnold Schwarzenegger makes his Indian film debut with the sequel.

“Arnold was impressed with the storyline of Enthiran 2 and agreed to be a part of the film,” Shankar confirmed.

When Schwarzenegger came to India in 2014, he mentioned that he was open to the idea of working in an Indian film. “It’s true that Arnold has been approached to play the antagonist in the sequel. But he has not signed the project yet. The star will soon participate in a trial test for the role in Los Angeles,” said a source close to the filmmaker.

Reportedly, Arnold has been offered a whopping Rs 100 crore for his role. Amy Jackson has already been finalized as the leading lady.

To be produced by Lyca International on a lavish budget, the film will be shot in 3D and will have music by AR Rahman.
