New Delhi [India], Nov. 22 (ANI): Akshay Kumar says he has never applied make-up but his upcoming flick '2.0' has made-up for 25 years of his career.

Khiladi Kumar has stunned everyone with his fierce avatar in the recently released posters of his Rajnikanth-starrer flick.

"It used to take me three hours to put make-up and one hour to remove it. In 25 years of my career, I have never put make-up. But in this film, pure 25 years ka kasar pura hogaya," said the 49-year old actor.

The ' Airlift' star reveals that this movie has taught him to be patient.

"While they used to put make up on me, I used to watch so many movies on TV. I am a patient guy and with this movie, I have become more patient," he said.

' 2.0' is the sequel to Rajinikanth's 2010-blockbuster 'Enthiran' in which the 'Rustom' actor stars as the antagonist, a scientist who becomes eccentric after an experiment goes wrong.

Directed by Shankar, the movie also stars Amy Jackson and is set to release during the Diwali 2017 weekend. (ANI)
