Even as the news—'Robot had been dropped' had dropped a bombshell in
Kollywood as well as Bollywood, gossip pundits in the tinsel town had
kickstarted a discussion on what would be Shankar's next project.

Some of them say that Shankar would continue with Robot by joining
hands with some other hero (probably Ajit) and some other producer,
since it was his dream movie for which he is waiting for more than a
decade. They say that Kamal may also act as it was planned earlier.

Others say Shankar would take a break for sometime and would direct a
Telugu film with Mahesh Babu in the lead. It has to be noted here that
a buzz did rounds sometime back that Shankar and Mahesh would come
together after the completion of Sivaji.
