The rumor mills are abuzz that South film wizard Shanker is in talks with Bollywood’s ‘Numero Uno’ actress Katrina Kaif to romance with South Sensational Superstar Rajinikanth in his next film ROBOT - 2 (Enthiran 2), the sequel to Shanker’s 2010 super hit ROBOT.
Shanker who is known for casting a top Bollywood actress in his movies to tap the North belt - remember Aishwarya Rai Bachchan in ROBOT and Sonakshi Sinha in LINGAA, has approached Katrina Kaif in ROBO 2 and is also in talks with another Bollywood beauty Deepika Padukone as ROBO 2 has two heroes - Rajinikanth and South sensational Vikram, who will play the main antagonist in ROBOT 2, the role turned down earlier by Mr. Perfectionist Aamir Khan.
It may be noted this is not the first time Katrina Kaif has been approached to play female lead opposite Rajinikanth.
Readers may recall Katrina Kaif was earlier approached by Rajnikanth’s daughter Soundarya for her film KOCHADAIYAAN but she could not fulfill her craving of working with her dream hero Rajinikanth because of her hectic schedules in Bollywood.
In an interview Kaif had lamented the grief of not being able to work with her favorite superstar Rajinikanth.
She had said, “Rajinikanth sir’s daughter Soundarya was consistently following me to give a nod for her film. I too was quite excited as working with Rajni sir is a great honor and my intense dream but alas as I was tied up in foreign locations like Havana, Cuba, working with Salman Khan for director Kabir Khan’s EK THA TIGER, hence I lost the golden opportunity.”
“Nevertheless it’s not the end of the road. Rajinikanth sir and I will work together in the near future on something else, for sure. Fingers crossed, “she had hoped positively.
It seems her dream has turned true and the audience is dying soon to see the magical Jodi of Rajinikanth and Katrina Kaif ablaze the screen.
