The producers, Aingaran Films International (P) Ltd, of Director Shankar’s latest film Robo, starring Rajinikanth and Aishwarya Rai, have backed off stating that a budget of Rs 120 Crore may not be viable.
However, the film will not face the fate of Kamal Hasan’s Marmayogi. Director Shankar and Rajinikanth were successful in persuading Sun Pictures of Sun TV Network Limited group to take over the production responsibilities.
An official statement has been issued in Chennai to this effect. The details of the deal between the original and new producers have not been made public.
The shooting of Robo is continuing.
