Akshay Kumar, who has impressed everyone with his spine-chilling avatar in the promos and trailer, is playing the lead antagonist in the film, while Rajinikanth will be seen as the upgraded version of Robot i.e. 2.0. Akshay Kumar's character is definitely the centre of attraction, as even the superstar, during the poster launch and trailer release, had said that he would have loved to play Akki's character in the film if he had given a chance.
Talking about it, in a groupd interview, Akshay said, "He is just being humble. It’s very much his film because the title is 2.0. I can’t be that. He is 2.0. He is just being kind and nice to me. I respect him for that. It’s very much his film. I am just the Amrish Puri of the film." 2.0: Aishwarya Rai Bachchan to Have a Cameo in the Rajinikanth-Akshay Kumar Starrer But There’s a Twist
Sharing his experience of working with Thalaivar, the actor further added, "We used to talk in Marathi. He is a Maharashtrian and I also know the language. So, we used to enjoy speaking in Marathi. He is a great man. And it’s amazing you give him one dialogue and he changes it into an epic dialogue. He puts entertainment in every line."
Talking to the website, Akshay also shared how proud he feels to be associated with this project. He said, "This is the best technical film India has ever produced. It’s originally made in 3D, not transformed in it. It’s an amazing concept to watch in 3D. Mr Shankar is James Cameron on steroids. Everything is larger than life. It’s like when you watch Transformers and you see two robots fighting and you feel wow! We can’t compete with them because their budget is some 17 times higher than ours. Trust me in this 510 crores, they can’t make what we have made."
Apart from Akshay Kumar and Rajinikanth, 2.0 also stars Amy Jackson, who will be seen as Rajinikanth's robot character Chiti's love interest. Rajinikanth starrer 2.0 will be released in Tamil, Telugu and Hindi versions and Karan Johar will present the Hindi version under his banner Dharma Productions. So, how excited are you?
