Hollywood star Arnold Schwarzenegger, who was in Chennai on Monday as the chief guest for the audio launch of Tamil magnum opus I, said he would love to work with its director Shankar some day.
Schwarzenegger even gave the film an imaginary title King Conan, inspired from the film franchise Conan the Barbarian and Conan the Destroyer. "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," said Schwarzenegger.
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.
