When Rajinikanth lost confidence and told the director he won’t be able to do ‘2.0’

[dropcap]T[/dropcap]here’s nothing that Rajini ‘kanth’ (can’t) do – goes the popular saying. There are also jokes about Rajinikanth doing the most impossible and unimaginable things. However, the reality is different.

News is that Rajinikanth thought that he would not be able to do his upcoming film 2.0! Talking about the same, the South superstar said, “When I was shooting for the film, I was unwell. I was taking close to eight takes for a shot and that made me lose my confidence. I even told Shankar (director of 2.0) that I won’t be able to shoot for the film, but he told me that he would plan it according to my convenience. He also said that I need not wear the bodysuit, but I insisted on sporting it. When I saw Akshay Kumar in his get-up, I was completely blown away.”

The sequel to the 2010 sci-fi thriller Robot will see Rajinikanth donning multiple looks. The actor will be seen as Vaseegaran, Chitti, 2.0 and giant Chitti.

Talking about Rajinikanth, the director of the film said, “When we were shooting the climax of the film in Delhi, his health was not good. The temperature outside was 47 degree celsius, and he had to wear a costume weighing 12 kgs. He even hurt himself during the shoot, but he still finished the scene before heading to the hospital.”
