Rajnikanth’s ‘Robot 2’ steals the crown from ‘Baahubali: The Beginning’

Rajnikanth’s films are truly exceptional. From the VFX effects to the stunt he does, everything is extraordinary. There’s nothing in this world that this star can’t do or can’t achieve. He can mend anything, break anything or even kill his several enemies in a blink of an eye. And when he can do this, he can surely break the records set by his contemporaries, isn’t it? Well, probably that’s what he is planning to do with his next film ‘Robot 2.’

According to the recent reports, Rajnikanth’s upcoming film ‘Robot 2,’ helmed by Tamil filmmaker Shankar, is set to break the record of director S. S. Rajamouli’s ‘Baahubali: The Beginning.’ We aren’t talking about the box office records here, but ‘Robot 2’ is set to snatch the tag of being India’s most expensive film from ‘Baahubali: The Beginning.’ If the reports are to be held true, then Rajnikanth’s ‘Robot 2’ would be made with the budget of approximately 250 to 300 crores. This figure exceeds the amount used by the makers of ‘Baahubali.’ Well, as we say, records are meant to be broken, right?

Rajnikanth will start shooting for ‘Robot 2’ next year, but the pre-production work of the film has already begun. Sources say that the look test of Rajnikanth for the film has already been done and his looks have been designed by the Weta Workshop team. Weta Workshop had designed Vikram’s look in his movie ‘I.’ Apart from this, the director plans to rope in the Hollywood star Arnold Schwarzenegger to play the role of a villain in ‘Robot 2,’ but nothing has been confirmed yet.
