'Was on a liquid-diet whilst shooting': Akshay Kumar

Even as the much-awaited sci-fi magnum opus superstar Rajinikanth-starrer ‘2.0’ directed by Southside ‘showman’ S.Shankar releases this week, our own Bollywood mega-star Akshay Kumar seems both delighted and anxious.

Interestingly, the macho Kumar is elated because like in his recent movies ‘Pad Man' and ‘Toilet : Ek Prem Katha’, this movie ‘2.0’ too effectively conveys a strong social message of protecting the environment as well as the birds from the hazards of mobile-phones-networks-towers harmful effects of radiation.

Insists Akshay, “Amidst all the breathtaking VFX and awesome action-stunt-scenes on par with Hollywood films, the spectacular film ‘2.0’ also shares a message that this world is not just for humans—it belongs as much to all birds and animals as well,” he shrugs.

How was his experience working with the revered Thalaivar Rajinikanth as his co-star. With a blushing glow on his face he reacts, ”Despite his iconic status, Rajini-Sir is humility personified. Since he knows the language, we would converse in Marathi. Although, everyone is going ga-ga over my bizarre, diabolic look with the fierce fangs-scary eyes in the movie, it’s Rajini-sir’s movie all the way. Guess, I am like Amrish Puri in this sci-fi show,” chuckles Akshay, whose elaborate prosthetic make-up process was highly tedious. “It used to take three and a half hours to get the entire make-up done. Since the body-suit was a tight-fit grip, I wasn’t allowed to eat. Whilst shooting I was on a liquid-diet—only milk-shakes, juices and water. But then all the extra effort was worth it,” he says with a sense of pride.
