"There is a saying that cinema is magic and actors are magicians. For me, Rajinikanth sir is a real magician. From what I have observed on the sets of Enthiran 2, he has his own way of delivering dialogues - which I can't even think of doing myself!"

He also stated that he can't wait for the Thalaiva's upcoming film Kabali. Akshay was quoted as saying:

"I can't wait to see Rajinikanth sir's Kabali. I heard that lots of people in Chennai have already started requesting for leave on the day of the release, 22 July! I also came to know that the fans wake up as early as 4 am to witness their beloved idol on the big screen. Even on the sets of Enthiran 2, I hear the Kabali ringtone everywhere! This is unbelievable. I really wish I were here in Chennai on the day of Kabali's release,"

Meanwhile, Kabali is slated to release this Friday. The action-thriller also stars Radhika Apte and Dhansika.
