New Delhi, July 18 (ANI): Along with all the Rajni-fans, Akshay Kumar too is super excited for his '2.O' co-star Rajnikanth's upcoming flick 'Kabali' and wished to be in Chennai on the release day. According to a Deccan Chronicle report, the 48-year-old actor, who is now in Chennai to shoot his portions for the 'Robot' sequel, opened up about 'Kabali' and Tamil cinema fans' respect for the Thalaiva. "I can't wait to see Superstar's Kabali. I heard that lots of people have already started requesting for leave on the day of the release! I also came to know that fans wake up as early as 4 am to witness their beloved idol on the big screen. Even on the sets of 2.O, I hear the Kabali ringtone everywhere! This is unbelievable. I really wish I were in Chennai on the day of Kabali's release," said the 'Khiladi' actor. Further, speaking about the aura of the 65-year-old Superstar, the 'Airlift' actor said, "There's a saying that cinema is magic and actors are magicians. For me, Rajinikanth sir is the real magician. From what I have noticed, he has his own way of delivering dialogues - which I can't even think of doing myself!" The Airlift actor added that he has learnt a lot from the South industry as he "closely follow the works of actors like Vijay, Vikram and Kamal Haasan." (ANI)
