“There was no question of taking up the part. I wouldn’t have been part of this film under any circumstance, and it’s got nothing to do with the role being a negative one. I’ve played negative roles any number of times. Besides, a big star (Akshay Kumar) is playing the part now,” says Kamal Haasan.
The real reason for saying no to Robot was something else.
Explains Kamal Haasan, “Rajniji and I have a pact. Whenever we do another film together it’d have to be produced by either me or him. It’s the only way to ensure we do not displease our fans.”
