Actor Amy Jackson, who has teamed up with superstar Rajinikanth 2.0, says he gets nervous with the media and attention.

“He is very quiet, humble and soulful person. We were shooting a scene that involved me and Rajinikant. I was very excited and I told him this, he said I am nervous. I was like ok. He said he gets nervous about the media and the attention. I told him he is a superstar but he said he gets nervous,” said Amy at an event here.

“As a person he has sustained for many years and he is still at top, he is humble and focused on his work. That is important,” said the actor.

In director S Shankar’s 2.0 Rajinikanth will reprise the role of Dr Vaseegaran and Chitti while Akshay Kumar, who is the new addition to the movie plays a villain in the second instalment of Robot.

“I haven’t started filming with Akshay yet. I have had all my sequences with Rajinikant. He is very quiet. While Akshay is opposite, he is lively and cracking jokes. I am excited to start shooting with Akshay again,” said Amy, a British model and actress, who has acted in Tamil and few Hindi and Telugu films.

Talking about her journey from the United Kingdom to Bollywood, she said, “It has been crazy and amazing. I had never thought I would work with Akshay and Rajinikant and would get to associate with these talented people.”

Considering she has acted in south Indian and Hindi films, Amy says she is good with Tamil language.

“My Hindi is ok. I think I am better with Tamil. I remember the Tamil words,” she added.
