That is one helluva makeover! It looks like Akshay Kumar, the Mr Bharat of recent times, has gone the whole hog to turn bad. A teaser of his character was revealed during the shoot of Rajinikanth’s next film – 2.o by Tamil director Shankar.
Dressed in a grey outfit, Akshay carries off a sinister air with his long ‘eye lashes’ and blood-shot eyes. He even sports a bald patch, white hair and a false set of teeth. Akshay reportedly plays evil mind Dr Richard, a scientist who can turn into a crow at will.
The photo still was tweeted by an Akshay Kumar fan club from an exclusive photo shoot for Delhi Times.
The film’s director also tweeted in praise of his ‘villain’.
Happy to shoot with Akshay Kumar - Hard working, disciplined n cooperative actor.— Shankar Shanmugham (@shankarshanmugh) March 21, 2016
2.o is the sequel to Rajinikanth’s highly successful 2010 film Enthiran (Robot in Hindi) and stars Amy Jackson. Aishwarya Rai Bachchan had starred opposite Rajinikanth in the first instalment.
