Ever since Shankar announced his next film titled “Robot“, there has been a lot of buzz about it. Be it about trying to cast Shah Rukh Khan, later Hrithik Roshan or about the high budget. Now the recent buzz is about if Aishwarya Rai would accept act in this film or not. Apparently Shankar offered a big sum to Aishwarya. A lot of Rajinikanth‘s fans are waiting eagerly to see if they would be fortunate enough to see his favorite super star pair up with Aishwarya Rai.

Until yesterday there was some news that Aishwarya Bachchan may not accept this project as she wants to have babies before she gets too old for that.

According to the sources that this news came from, she has confirmed this in her recent interview to a private news channel.

The new actress has made her debut with the film “Saawariya” in the direction of Sanjay Leela Bhansali, one of the finest directors of Bollywood film industry. And now she has got an opportunity to work in the direction of Mr. Mehra, who shot to fame with the tremendous success of “Rang De Basanthi“. The film is probably going to be titled Delhi 6 or Dilli 6. She seems to be very lucky to have got this film opposite Abhishek even before the release of her debut film “Saawariya.”

According to sources Sonam has been offered a handsome amount for the movie. She gave her consent immeadiately after the movie was narrated to her in the presence of her father Anil Kapoor. The male lead was initially offered to Hrithik Roshan but when he rejected the film, the director took his time to consider Akshay Kumar, Siddharth, Ranbir Kapoor and finally settled with Abhishek. Can the director show his magic again and turn this film another huge hit just like his first movie?
