While Superstar Rajinikanth is readying up to work in a small budgeted movie next month, South India's top director Shankar is silently doing pre-production work for 'Robo 2'.
Shankar's 'Robo 2' will go to the sets next year with Rajinikanth playing the lead and Vikram doing the villain role.
Shankar who always prefers to take Bollywood top heroines for his movies has approached Katrina Kaif to play the main heroine role. Deepika was also under consideration but Shankar reportedly is in favor of casting Katrina.
In the beginning of her career, Katrina Kaif had acted with Tollywood stars Venkatesh and Balakrishna but once she reached to the top in Bollywood she declined offers from South Indian movies. Since it is Rajinikanth and Shankar's film, Katrina might say yes to this.
