Hollywood actor Arnold Schwarzenegger, currently in Chennai, congratulated and watched in awe the special bodybuilding act presented at the audio launch of "I".

The special number, which had a dozen local bodybuilders showing off their muscles, had Arnold in rapt attention. In an impromptu move, he went up on stage and posed for pictures with all of them. He said, "It's great to see all this talent. It reminds me of my olden days. It's wonderful that Shankar has given them a chance to star in the movie."

"I", which stars Vikram in the lead, has the actor playing Lingesan, a bodybuilder who aspires to become Mr. Tamil Nadu.
