Beside, Akshay said that he was honoured to be a part of 2.0 film which features superstar Rajinikanth in the lead.
“I am so honoured to be here. I can’t explain my feelings. I can’t thank Shankar sir enough for the opportunity. And Subaskaran, big thanks,” said Akshay Kumar at the trailer launch.
“I got to learn lot of challenging things. Shankar is a scientist, not a director. I did make up for 3 hours and I took one hour to remove the makeup. I just saw myself on the screen, and it was unbelievable. I’m looking forward to seeing the film. I thank Shankar sir. It was worth the pain,“ added Akshay.
It took 3.5 hours to put on the makeup and 1.5 hrs to remove it. Shankar is not only a director, he is a scientist. I have learned a lot from him while shooting for this film. – @akshaykumar @ #2Point0TrailerLaunch pic.twitter.com/WCXW09I0DH
