Rajinikanth and Akshay are working together in the sequel to Enthiran

"I always had this in my mind that whenever I would get a chance to star with Rajinikanth in a film, I would never let it go. When I met him for the first time during the shoot, I was completely in awe of him. I was behaving like a child, who innocently looks at the candy jars in a shop. It was a wonderful experience," Akshay said

He is yet to begin filming his debut Tamil film Enthiran 2 with Rajinikanth but actor Akshay Kumar is already in awe of the southern superstar.
Akshay, 48, who will be seen in a negative role in the reboot of the 2010 sci-fi film, said he 'felt like a child' when he met Rajinikanth during the photoshoot of the movie.
"I always had this in my mind that whenever I would get a chance to star with Rajinikanth in a film, I would never let it go.
Rajinikanth is a man with the golden heart. When I met him for the first time during the shoot, I was completely in awe of him. I was behaving like a child, who innocently looks at the candy jars in a shop. It was a wonderful experience," Akshay told PTI.
Directed by Shanmugam Shankar, Enthiran 2 will co-star Amy Jackson in the female lead. The Oscar-winning team of composer A R Rahman and sound designer Resul Pookutty have also been roped in for the film.
The shooting of the film has already begun and the Airlift actor will start his leg of filming from March.
"I have seen almost all his films since my childhood. I am just waiting to start my shoot with him. I will start shooting in March," Akshay said, adding that it was 'tough to play a negative character.'
"Negative is tough. You have to bring your evil out which you are not used to. I have mostly played positive characters so, it becomes more tough for me. It's kind of a new genre," the actor said.
