Na­tional Award win­ning ac­tor Ak­shay Ku­mar, who at­tended the grand au­dio launch of his de­but Tamil film 2.0 in Dubai, said that the Hindi film in­dus­try has a lot to learn from south­ern cin­ema. “I have done 130 films (in Bol­ly­wood) and 2.0 was my 131st film. I can only say that dur­ing the mak­ing of those 130 films, I got to learn lit­tle from ev­ery film, but I was learn­ing through­out the shoot­ing of 2.0. There’s a lot that we have to learn from South be­cause they work in unity and re­spect each other’s tal­ent; we have to learn that,” he added. Ak­shay, along with film­maker S Shankar, megas­tar Ra­jinikanth, Os­car­win­ning com­poser AR Rah­man, ac­tor Amy Jack­son, and pro­ducer Al­li­ra­jah Subaskaran, at­tended the au­dio launch of the 3D sci-fi movie on Fri­day. “Ra­jini sir is the real su­per­star. I would like to thank Shankar sir for giv­ing me the op­por­tu­nity of work­ing with a leg­end like Ra­jinikanth. I could’ve never imag­ined that I’ll get a chance to work in such a big film like 2.0,” Ak­shay said. A se­quel to the 2010 Tamil block­buster En­thi­ran, the film 2.0 will have Ak­shay es­say­ing the prime antagonist. The film is slated to be re­leased in early 2018.
