EXCLUSIVE: The way Rajinikanth presents himself is an example for other stars to learn, says Adil Hussain
‘2.0’ trailer was unveiled in Chennai on November 3 in the presence of Tamil megastar Rajinikanth, Akshay Kumar and the entire team of the movie. From fans to celebrities, everyone was in awe after watching the trailer. Internationally acclaimed actor Adil Hussain, who also has an important role in the movie, spoke exclusively to Bollywood Bubble regarding the movie, its director and Rajinikanth.
The ‘Life of Pi’ actor is sharing screen space with Rajinikanth for the first time. Talking about his experience of working with the veteran actor, he said Rajinikanth is a very humble person and the way he presents himself in everyday life is an important lesson for the other superstars of the country. “Rajini ji simply doesn’t bother how he looks in everyday life. That I think is very important. He fulfils the two different kinds of dreams of the audience. One is that he is an ordinary man like anybody. And the other aspect is that he fulfils the ordinary man’s dreams of ordinary men doing extraordinary things. He is an example for other stars to learn,” he said.
Talking about the trailer, he said that it is an action-packed trailer. He said, “I feel that producers have left no stone unturned to match it up to the global standard. I found it to be pretty well-done. VFX, high-end technologies have been used so that Indian audiences will see something made in India of that standard. Indians watch Tamil and Hindi dubbed Hollywood movies. So I think producers know that the Indian audience is used to watching those movies and keeping that in mind, they have done their best in the VFX department.”
When asked whether ‘2.0’ will have an important message to convey or not, Mr Hussain said, “I think the film has a very important message to convey because Shankar generally makes interesting message-oriented films. What I have gathered from the trailer is that how technology is influencing us, how it can be manipulated and how it has a harmful impact on the biological body and mental status of people.”
Apart from ‘2.0’, Adil Hussain will also be seen in paranormal thriller ‘Nirvana Inn’ that also has ‘Sacred Games’ fame Rajshri Deshpande.
