Hindustan Times (Patna) - Live - - Front Page - shreya.mukher­jee@htlive.com

Ac­tor Amy Jack­son (above) calls her­self a huge fan of ac­tor Ra­jinikanth (above ex­treme right). The Bri­tish model and ac­tor, who has re­cently fin­ished shoot­ing the se­quel of En­thi­ran aka Ro­bot, shares that she has learnt how to stay calm, dur­ing dif­fi­cult sit­u­a­tions from the ac­tor.

“While shoot­ing for 2.0, I got to spend a lot of time with Ra­jini sir and learnt a lot from him. He treated me as his daugh­ter and was al­ways there, when I needed him. What I learnt from him is to be pa­tient and dis­ci­plined in life, the way he does,” says Amy, who was last seen in the Bol­ly­wood film Freaky Ali (2016).

Amy adds that even after spend­ing so much time with Ra­jinikanth, she still feels that there is so much more to know about him. “I’m yet to know him well. So, ev­ery time I work with him, I keep learn­ing. It’s al­ways a plea­sure,” she gushes. Shankar’s film 2.0 also stars

Ak­shay Ku­mar (above right) in the lead role along­side Ra­jinikanth. Amy shares how Ak­shay is a to­tal prankster and says there is not a sin­gle drab mo­ment when the ac­tor is around. “Ak­shay is so much fun to work with. Most of my scenes are with Ra­jini sir and not much with Ak­shay, but when­ever we were on the sets to­gether, I’ve been the tar­get of all his pranks,” quips Amy.
