Akshay Kumar never dreamt of getting punched by Rajinikanth
New Delhi: Akshay Kumar is probably the most versatile actor in Bollywood today. He excels in slipping himself into different zones easily. He makes sure that he is catering to every kind of audiences and so, after a ‘Singh Is Bling', he comes up with an ‘Airlift'.
Khilaadi Kumar drew everybody's attention when he signed up for the villainous lead in ‘Robot 2' opposite megastar Rajinikanth. Every cine-buff was thrilled with this collaboration and couldn't contain their excitement to witness this epic hero-villain jodi on screen.
Sharing his happiness on bagging the film Akshay said that he never even dreamt of working with Thalaiva in a film.
In a conversation with a leading daily, he said, “These things don't come to you even in a dream.”
He further said, “Today, the action may seem a little funny, but at that time I would be gaping at the screen, wondering how Rajini sir did what he did. It was a marvel in technique and technology! He's a wonderful actor and even more, a wonderful human being. It will be an honour to be punched by Rajini sir. It's going be a different world for me -the graphics, the action and the adulation that he commands.”
Directed by Shankar, ‘Robot 2' is slated to release towards the end of 2016.
