Hollywood star Arnold Schwarzenegger, who has been invited as the chief guest for the audio launch of Vikram-starrer Tamil romantic-thriller “I”, arrived here Monday for the event amidst high security. The audio launch will take place this evening at Nehru indoor stadium.

“Arnold arrived with his entourage this morning. He is expected to meet Tamil Nadu chief minister J. Jayalalitha in the afternoon. His team had sent a special request for the meeting,” a source said Arnold will share the dais with Tamil superstar Rajinikanth at the event.

The audio launch will be a “two and a half hours” extravaganza. “A.R Rahman will perform all the songs from the album live. He will also be supported by dancers, who will perform wearing the actual costumes and makeup from the film. The show will go on for about two and a half hours,” he said. Directed by Shankar, “I” also stars Amy Jackson, Suresh Gopi and Upen Patel in important roles. It is slated for a Diwali release.
