Akshay Kumar’s fierce character has grabbed many eyeballs but do you know that Akshay wasn’t the first choice for this extravagant role?
The actor who was initially in talks was none other than the legendary actor Arnold Schwarzenegger. Yes, the Terminator actor was asked to play the role in Shankar’s film.
During a press conference in Mumbai, film's director S Shankar revealed: "We had thought of casting Arnold. We had talked and allotted dates also. But somehow things did not work out as the contracts of Hollywood and India are contradictory. So we thought of looking at a good cast from the Indian film industry."
Shankar said that the producers of Robot (Lyca) and Akshay were in talks for the remake of hit film Kathi and that is how Akshay came in contact with Shankar who later finalized him for the role.
Shankar says: "Everyone told me to consider Akshay and I also thought it would be nice. I narrated the story to him and he said yes."
Well, we are glad that its Akshay gracing the character and we just cannot wait to see this mammoth of a film on the silver screens.
