A Bollywood robot movie is back from development hell. S. Shankar's Robot has been in development since 2001, but now seems to be back on track to start filming next year.

Robot will be a "futuristic vigilante tale" of man versus robots, according to comments attributed to Shah Rukh Khan, the film star who bailed out of the lead role a month ago. Khan quit because he didn't like the script, but now Ajith Kumar (Vaali, pictured above) is set to star.
