Oscar winner composer A R Rahman says his upcoming project 2.0, starring superstar Rajinikanth and Akshay Kumar, is a tough film to work on. “It is the toughest film I am doing. Shankar (director) is not happy with anything I am doing. I am trying to create something unique for India and the world,” Rahman said. The composer had collaborated with S Shankar for the 2010 science fiction drama Enthiran (‘Robot’ in Hindi) with Rajinikanth, Aishwarya Rai Bachchan and Danny Denzongpa in the lead roles. Even the southern superstar feels it is a tough job to please Shankar.
“To work with Shankar is difficult. He is a perfectionist. That is why he is one of the biggest directors. This picture as 3D is a different experience,” the 65-year-old actor said. Amy Jackson, who is working with Rajinikanth for the first time was euphoric for being a part of the project.
“I had no idea that I would be a part of this film with these legends. I was intimidated initially but on sets, everyone was like my family,” she said.
Filmmaker S Shankar says he would like to make more film as part of the sci-fi franchise. “Yes, of course, we would like to take it ahead as it is very interesting science fiction drama. So, definitely, if something comes up then we will go ahead with 3.0, 4.0, 5.0,” Shankar told reporters here last evening when asked about taking the franchise forward.
