Arnold Schwarzenegger with Rajnikanth and Vikram: Photos

Tamil superstar Rajinikanth and veteran Hollywood actor Arnold Schwarzenegger, were at the audio launch of Shankar’s Tamil film ‘I’.

Rajni was all praise for Vikram who spent more than two years working for the film and has had to lose and gain weight quite a few times during the making of the film.

“Vikram has dedicated his life for this film. Hats off to his commitment. I don’t think you could find an actor who has sacrificed so much for a character in Indian cinema as well as Hollywood. I wish the film all success,” Rajinikanth told reporters at the audio launch of ‘I’.

Rajni also praised Shankar for taking Indian Cinema to Hollywood standards.

“What do I say about Shankar? It’s been two decades since he entered the Tamil film industry. He’s climbing up with every film. ‘I’ will take him to the pinnacle. But I know this won’t be the end because he will continue making films that will supersede his own work,” he said.

“He’d always complain that why can’t we make films on par with Hollywood. His aim has always been to take Tamil cinema to global standards. He does all this not just for money, but for his passion for cinema. He’s the real cinema Indian,” he added.

Meanwhile, Arnold said he would love to work with director Shankar someday

“Shankar is a great filmmaker. He comes up with superb special effects in his films. I would love to work with him someday. Let’s make ‘King Conan’, Shankar,” Schwarzenegger said.

The makers of the film organised a special bodybuilding act featuring a dozen local bodybuilders as a tribute to Arnold, who is a bodybuilding legend.

The ‘Terminator’ series star, who watched in awe, congratulated all of them. He was also happy that Shankar had featured them in the film.

“It’s great to see all this talent. It reminds me of my olden days. It’s wonderful that Shankar has given them a chance to star in the movie,” he said.

Oscar winning music composer A.R Rahman also performed at the event.

  • There is two kind of remakes –
    (1) – other languages (english, tamil, telugu, bhojpuri, etc.) remakes
    Partner, kick, bodyguard, rowdy rathore, hum aapke hain kaun (bhojpuri movies remake)
    (2) – same language but with different actor like don, agnipath, there are many more sholay kind of stories also.
    Acording to me if a movie remake with other language make sence cuz songs expressions and viewrs totaly different so its good if u make other languages good movies remake but when somebody make remake in same language, same songs with lesser acting skills than legends like Dilip kumar, Amitabh, rajesh khanna etc its bad thing for me amitabh’s don and agnipath were better to watch than srk’s don and hr’s agneepath. Hr’s agneepath is actually watchable but srk’s don bad movie.
    Hope u r aggry with me there is no problem with remakes if they r remakes of other language.

  • This movie is gonna be epic for sure…

    Vikram’s acting Shankar’s Direction will b something every cinema lover would look forward to… N Arnold’s cameo will b a cherry on the cake…

    Motion poster is very interesting….. Eagerly waiting for its release..

  • Even Arnold wanted to meet Rajnikanth so he traveled from USA all the way to India to meet him.

    Jokes aside, Shankar is, without a doubt, one of the greatest film makers in the history of Indian film industry.

  • chiyaan vikram rocks… i love his sethu, anniyan , aparichit and kanthaswamy.. anniyan was awesome so was sethu… sethu was remade as “tere naam” in hindi.. salman’s best performance.. i saw tere naam first and then sethu after many years.. tere naam literally broke me in tears.. such was salman’s vulnerability in his performance.. i was a 8 years kid that time..

  • ‘I’ will be crucial film for Vikrams carrier,we all hope that ‘I’ will repete the success of Vikram and Shankers earlier film Anniyan.

  • To the knolwedge of bollywood fans…Shankar is a Director/ Producer…whose all movies are superhits and blockbusters….and moreover his films are very versatile and different..not last but not least all his movies has a social message…

    He is No.1 director in India and top 5 in worldwide….No one can match him up in bollywood…but the directors who can chase him are Rajkumar hirani and rakesh roshan who make out of box films.

  • @vera arnold has done so much in his he has earned success and respect in his life, but person like u who has so much hatered inside always show -vety towards others
