The film's stars Rajinikanth and Amy Jackson had recently visited Los Angeles to participate in a make-up test session for Enthiran 2. International make-up artist Sean Foot, who has worked on films such as I and Avatar, will design the look of the characters.
Arnold Schwarzenegger, who was in talks to play the antagonist, recently opted out of the film citing disagreement over the script. Sources reveal that actors like Neil Nitin Mukesh and Hrithik Roshan are being considered for the role who will replace the Hollywood actor. Amy reportedly plays the role of a robot in the movie but it's not known whether she plays the main female lead.(Also Read: Arnold Schwarzenegger May Not be a Part of Rajinikanth's Enthiran 2)
