Akshay Kumar on working with Rajinikanth: I feel like I am on top of the world
Akshay Kumar feels on the top of the world to share screen space with none other than Rajinikanth. Khiladi Kumar, who is making his debut in South cinema with Shankar’s Endhiran 2, is quite ecstatic to play the antagonist the sci-fi film. So much so, that the Airlift actor doesn’t mind being punched by Thalaiva in the film.
“I feel like I am on top of the world. It’s alright getting kicked and punched. I have done that all my life. It is great to be punched by a superhero like Rajinikanth,” Akshay told PTI.
In the film, Rajinikanth will reprise his role of a scientist and his creation, Chitti-the robot and Akshay will play the villain.
“I am looking forward to play a negative role. It will be an honour,” he added.
“I am not doing any preparations. No training as such yet. There is no training for it. I just have to condition my jaw that’s it,” Akshay said.
Remembering his first meeting with the south superstar, Akshay said, “There were 15 people waiting for him. Everyone was just looking at him. He was having a tea and there was some dust on his trousers, he cleaned it and everybody heaved a sigh of relief. I tried doing the same thing but no one looked at me.”
Enthiran 2.0, directed by Shanmugam Shankar, will have Amy Jackson as the female lead.
