Is she doing it? Is she not? is the question in everyones mind as far as Robot and Aishwarya are concerned now. Since the project started there have been a lot of speculation about if she’ll do the movie, how much she would be paid for it etc. A Mumbai tabloid reports that Shankar plans to shoot ‘The Robot’ over a period of two years and this is a already known news to the SouthDreamz.com readers and that apparently is not acceptable to Ash who cannot afford to give so much of time to a project. Going by the grapevine, Aishwarya is already on her way out as she was more concerned about spending that kind of time with her family rather on the sets of any movie.
Shankar is very found of Aishwarya rai since she made her acting debut in Shankar’s film ‘Jeans’. Since then it has been his wish to cast her in another one of his films and nothing had materialised until now. It remains to be seen if she has turned him down again for ‘The Robot’. Deepika Padukone seems to be Shankar’s next choice as the heroine opposite Superstar Rajnikanth if Aishwarya rai opts out of Robot.
