Akshay Kumar: It is great to be punched by a superhero like Rajinikanth


Actor Akshay Kumar, who would be seen with Rajinikanth as the main villain in the sequel of super hit sci-fi film “Robot”, is excited to be exchanging some punches with the south icon on-screen.

In the film, Rajinikanth will essay the role of a scientist and his creation, Chitti-the robot and Akshay will play the villain’s character.

 “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 an interview.

“I am looking forward to playing a negative role. It will be an honour,” he further added.

The 48-year-old superstar is playing a negative character but there are no specific preparations that he is required to do for the role.


“I am not doing any preparations… No training as such. 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 revealed, “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.”

The “Robot” (Enthiran 2.0) directed by Shanmugam Shankar will have Amy Jackson as the female lead.

“Robot” (2010) had Rajinikanth, Aishwarya Rai Bachchan and Danny Denzongpa.
