You know by now that Bollywood superstar Akshay Kumar is making his Tamil debut with Shankar's 2.0 (Robot 2 or Enthiran 2), a sequel to 2010 blockbuster Enthiran.
The film will see Akshay playing the antagonist opposite Rajinikanth. And it appears as though the Housefull 3 star cannot stop fangirling over the Thalaiva.
Akshay, who is currently in Chennai for the shooting schedule of 2.0, launched the audio of GV Prakash's upcoming film Enakku Innoru Per Irukku on 12 May.
During the event, Raju Mahalingam, the CEO of Lyca Productions that is bankrolling 2.0, showed him the teaser of his Rajinikanth's upcoming film, Kabali.
According to reports, Akshay has expressed his desire to watch the first day first show of Kabali. Raju Mahalingham took to Twitter to confirm the same. He posted:
