Rajinikanth's Brit co-star Amy Jackson on kick-starting 2.0 on her birthday; refutes buzz of liaison with Salman Khan
Working birthdays are not new for Amy Jackson, who turned 25 yesterday. Last year, she was on the set of Shankar's I, and this time too, she flew down from Amsterdam to join the shoot of the filmmaker's next, 2.0, starring Rajinikanth.
"The minute you land in Chennai, you will find him [Rajinikanth] everywhere. The world rightly thinks he is a superhuman. Yes, of course, he is a great actor; you can't scale such success otherwise. But stardom aside, he is also the most humble, kind and gracious person I have known. A simple conversation with him will make you realise the value of gratitude and how it is the way forward in life. That's a supertrick for life," she says.
Most of Amy's scenes in the film, she says, are with the legendary actor. "Performing stunts in front of him was difficult, but he isn't the kind of person who can intimidate. He is so caring and loving."
The film's schedule has been long drawn out, but Amy says it's always great to be back on a film set. "It has been a long, cumbersome wait, which can get frustrating for sure. But now that I am here, I feel it has been worthwhile. You should see our set; everyone is bubbling with energy and the positive vibe is enriching."
Laughing off rumours about her liaison with Salman Khan, which were triggered when the superstar attended the film's teaser launch last November, she says, "I think Salman wanted to come down to show support for the film because it was a prestigious project. The fact that he showed up was amazing. He is such a great actor, a huge star. I was supposed to do Kick (2014), but couldn't because of I. To work with Salman is a dream."
The actress also has in her kitty a Hollywood project, for which she starts shooting in March.
