After entertaining us in almost every genre -- comedy, action, drama, romance, Akshay Kumar is back with Housefull 3. The actor who is also busy shooting for Rajinikanth's Robot 2. 0 has donned quite a different look for the film.

The film features him in a role of a superhero villain who has got a scientist-turned-crow look. The Shankar-directorial will be mounted on a huge budget of Rs 350 crore, the highest ever for an Indian film.

Currently busy promoting Housefull 3, while interacting with the media Akshay Kumar told Catch why he signed Robot 2.0.

"I felt like signing it. I would say it was challenging and it was great to be beaten up by Rajinikanth while shooting for the film. A superhero villain is going to be a completely different space for me," he explained.

The actor also cleared the air about him coming on board for Jolly LLB 2. The actor neither confirmed nor denied the reports.
