Grapevine suggested that the Talaash actor was approached by the director to play a baddie
After leaving everyone’s mouth wide open with his 2010 magnum opus Enthiran, the ace director Shankar is gearing up for its next installment Robot 2 with superstar Rajinikanth in the lead. The excitement surrounding the film went double fold when it was rumoured that Enthiran director was in talks with Bollywood superstar Aamir Khan to play the villain.
Sources around the PK star have cleared the air around the speculations as they rubbished the rumours to be untrue. Sources claim that Aamir was never approached by Shankar for his film. This has nipped the buzz around Robot 2 as Aamir in Dhoom 3 was spectacular as a villain.
This is not the first time Anniyan director had approached a big Bollywood star. Enthiran was supposed to be filmed on Shah Rukh Khan and Kareena Kapoor Khan in the lead role. But when they dropped out of the project, Rajinikanth and Aishwarya Rai Bachchan had teamed up to deliver a monstrous hit.
So if Mr Shankar has not approached Mr Perfectionist yet, we would love him to do so as it would be a great sight to watch two greats of Indian cinema Rajini and Aamir Khan to share screen space.
