Akshay Kumar: I don’t have the guts to ask Rajinikanth his number
Akshay Kumar said that he could not congratulate Rajinikanth, who was selected for Padma Vibhushan award, as he did not have “guts” to ask the south megastar his contact number.
Padma Vibhushan is given for exellence and exceptional achievements in all fields of activities, disciplines such as art, literature and education, sports, medicine, social work, science and engineering, public affairs, civil service, trade and industry.
Akshay is in thrall of Rajinikanth who is his co-star in forthcoming film Robot 2. Rajinikanth and classical singer Girija Devi were selected for Padma Vibhushan, country’s second highest civilian award, while Anupam Kher, Udit Narayan, Priyanka Chopra and Ajay Devgn are among other Padma honorees from Bollywood.
“I am happy. I don’t have Rajni sir’s phone number. I don’t have the guts to ask him his number,” Akshay told PTI when asked if he has congratulated the veteran actor.
Akshay will play the main villain in Robot 2, the sequel of Rajinikanth’s sci-fi film Robot. Robot(2010) stars Rajinikanth, Aishwarya Rai Bachchan and Danny Denzongpa in the lead roles.
