Sensational director Shankar has met Superstar Rajinikanth few days ago while the later is shooting for his upcoming film, Lingaa. It was told that Shankar narrated him the subject of the planned sequel of his Robo movie. Needless to say Rajinikanth was super impressed with the subject and asked him to go ahead with the full bound script preparation.
It is told that Reliance Entertainments will be producing this sequel project. The production team is toying the idea of making the movie as a multi-lingual as they could avoid high taxes in other language markets. Shankar is reportedly thinking on the lines of making Robo as a franchise like Krrish in Bollywood. Shankar is currently busy with post production of ‘Ai’. He will be concentrating on Robo sequel after this project.
Robo is the biggest hit in Tollywood that year when released. The movie even remained in the Top 10 Telugu All Time hits for a long time despite having to shell big money as entertainment tax since it is a dubbing movie. The film features Rajinikanth in dual roles, as a scientist and an andro humanoid robot. Aishwarya Rai played the female lead in the movie.
