After months of speculations, it seems that the reports about Aamir Khan being roped in to play the villain in Rajinikanth’s film ‘Robot 2’ hardly had any traces of reality in it. Mirror stumbled across the speculations of Aamir Khan being in talks to show the negative role in the sequel to ‘Enthiran’ after a source close to the filmmaker proved the sequel, it was natural that the makers considered investing in a follow-up.
The same source also divulged that while strategies of the project were still being outlined, the initial rounds of discussions had started to sign the 49-year-old actor. However, the actor’s spokesman has put an end to this rumour by denying the reports saying that they don’t contain any iota of reality.
Shankar’s movie was initially offered to Shahrukh Khan, who was also scheduled to produce it, but opted out of the venture due to creative issues. Eventually, Aamir Khan was contacted, but he too turned it down which led to the script falling in Rajinikanth’s kitty. Released in 2010, with Aishwarya Rai in the lead opposite the 63-year old actor, the film made 375 crores globally.
