The Hollywood star explains the impromptu stage act in a letter
The rumour mills have been rife with speculation on what exactly transpired with Arnold Schwarzenegger at the recently concluded audio launch of Shankar's I that saw the former Hollywood ascend the stage in a hurry and take off-much to the surprise of the adoring audience.
Several versions of the tale - from the Terminator man not happy with the organisation of the event to being late for a flight have been thrown around - but good ol' Arnie has now decided to clear the air himself !
In a personally signed letter addressed to Aascar Ravichandran, the actor-turned politician profusely thanks the producer for the invitation, and confesses that he was bowled over by the hospitality he received during his time in chennai.
Arnold goes on to add that the reason he took the stage abruptly was because it was just after the bodybuilder had been showcased and he felt it was the perfect moment to address the audience. In his letter, he wrote, "The bodybuilders were a fantastic touch and made everything organic. I couldn't help but take the stage after that performance,because I knew it was the perfect time. I look forward to working with you again in future."
Arnold went on to pay an even more flattering tribute comparing the launch to the Oscars, saying that Hollywood could learn from the launch Of "I".
