Bollywood superstar Akshay Kumar is making his Tamil debut with Shankar's Enthiran 2, a sequel to 2010 blockbuster Enthiran.
The actor will essay the role of the antagonist - an evil scientist named Dr Richard. Akshay, who is a self-proclaimed Rajinikanth fan, has said that he was "thrilled" to receive punches from the Thalaiva.
While Akshay shares screen space with Rajnikanth in Enthiran, it appears as though the Airlift actor cannot wait for the release of the Thalaiva's upcoming film, Kabali.
In a recent interview with film critic Rajeev Masand, Akshay revealed that he was listening to the music of Kabali while shooting for Enthiran 2. He said:
"Apart from Enthiran 2, one more Rajinikanth Sir's film is going to release soon, Kabali. Great music! Throughout my schedule, I have been hearing Kabali only. It comes on radio FM stations, and lot of crew members' mobile has Kabali songs as ringtones".
The chart-topping music of Kabali has been composed by Santhosh Narayanan.
