Bollywood actor Akshay Kumar revealed that he was amazed when superstar Rajinikanth gave money back to distributors after his film failed commercially
"Rajini sir is not a superstar; he is an entire galaxy. If anybody has got swag, be it (lighting) a cigarette or putting on the coat or anything, it's him. There is no one who doesn't want to learn his style," Akshay has said during the teaser launch of 2.0.
"I remember his one film Baba that had released and it had not done well. And he had called distributors and returned their money. This is the biggest sign of being a superstar," he said.
"In my 25 years of career, I have never put makeup, but in this film pure 25 years ka kasar pura hogaya. It used to take me three hours to put the makeup on and one hour to remove it (for the role of villain). While they used to put makeup on me, I used to watch so many movies on TV," he said.
"I'm a patient guy, and with this movie I have become more patient. I am thankful to (director) Shankar sir and Rajini sir that they thought of me. I was shocked when they chose me. I'm his fan," Akshay added.
Akshay Kumar and Rajinikanth both were seen in S Shankar's 2.0 which did quite a good business at the box-office.
