Amy Jackson apes Michael Jackson's moves for Rajinikanth's '2.0'
Actor Amy Jackson inspired by legend Michael Jackson's dubstep, robot dance for song in Rajinikanth's 2.0
It is one thing to groove to a dance number, and quite another when you have to do it alongside megastar Rajinikanth. Amy Jackson, who starts shooting for a song with the South sensation tomorrow for 2.0, has been rigorously training in Chennai over the last few days.
"I am attempting robotic pop for the first time. Rajini sir had done something similar in Robot . He is a genius, so I am sure he will handle it," she laughs before adding, "But, it's a new form for me."
Choreographed by Bosco Martis, the song will be shot over the next 10 days in Chennai. While a portion of the song will be shot outdoors, a grand set has also been erected to lend the much-needed sci-fi vibe to the song.
A source close to the choreographer reveals, "Considering the fast-paced beats of the song, Michael Jackson's dubstep and robot dance are being used as references. Also, since the song involves quick steps, it requires greater fitness from both Amy and Rajini Sir."
Jackson, on her part, adopted a new workout regime to get in shape for the number. "I started practising a new form of yoga, which is great for balance. My trainer also devised a new routine that combines pilates and kickboxing."
