Actor Amy Jackson calls herself a huge fan of Tamil superstar Rajinikanth. The British model and actor, who has recently finished shooting for 2.0 — the sequel of Enthiran aka Robot — shares that she has learnt how to stay calm during difficult situations from the actor.

“While shooting 2.0, I got to spend a lot of time with Rajini sir and learnt a lot from him. He treated me as his daughter and was always there when I needed him. What I instantly learnt from him is to be patient and disciplined in life, the way he does,” says Amy, who was last seen in the Bollywood film Freaky Ali (2016), directed by Sohail Khan.

Amy adds that even after spending so much time with Rajinikanth, she still feels that there is so much more to know about him. “I am yet to know him well. So, every time I work with him, I will keep learning. It’s always a pleasure,” she gushes.

Feel very blessed to be a part of #2.0 with these living legends. Such an amazing experience!

Shankar’s much awaited film 2.0 also stars Akshay Kumar in the lead role alongside Rajinikanth. Amy shares how Akshay is a total prankster and says there is not a single drab moment when the actor is around. “Akshay is so much fun to work with. Most of my scenes in the film are with Rajini sir and there are not many of them with Akshay, But whenever we were on the sets together, shooting, I have been the target of all his pranks,” quips Amy.
