CHENNAI: "The Terminator" star Arnold Schwarzenegger, who was approached by the makers of superstar Rajinikanth-starrer "Enthiran 2" to play the antagonist in the film, may not get to play the role as the deal failed to work out, a source has said.

"The team has finally decided to rope in a Bollywood actor to play the baddie. The deal with Arnold Schwarzenegger didn't work out for various reasons. Hence, the makers decided to move on as the project was getting delayed," a source from the film's unit told IANS.

One of the reasons why the deal with Schwarzenegger fell through was because of the star's high remuneration of Rs.120 crore, according to the source,

A sequel to Tamil blockbuster "Enthiran", the film also stars Amy Jackson, who will reportedly be playing a robot.

To be directed by Shankar and produced by Lyca Productions, the project is set to go on floors later this month or early next year.

Oscar winning composer A.R. Rahman has been roped in to create music for the film.
