Amy Jackson, who will be seen sharing the screen with Rajinikanth in upcoming film 2.0, says the superstar is a quiet, humble person.

Sharing the experience of working with the veteran, the Freaky Ali star said: “He is very, humble and soulful person. Before releasing the first look, when we were shooting a scene, which involved Rajinikanth and me. I asked him, ‘Sir, are you excited to release the first look?’

“He said, ‘Actually Amy, I am very nervous. I get very nervous when I have the media attention’. I was surprised. I said you’re a superstar and you shouldn’t be. He said, ‘Yes, but I am nervous.’ This means he is such a humble person.”

Speaking to media at the launch of the cover page of Health and Nutrition Magazine, Jackson spoke about people who inspire her in Bollywood. “Akshay Kumar. He has sustained the tag from the moment he started. He actually lives by that mantra. His action sequences are best in Bollywood. When we were shooting Singh is Bling, he was always on set before anybody else after doing two hours workout. He is a big inspiration.”

“When it comes to the ladies, I think Deepika [Padukone] is unbelievable. Her body is great and I think Jacqueline [Fernandez] as well. She has incorporated dancing with the workout. I think everybody takes good care of them[selves],” she added

Directed by Shankar, the sequel to Rajni’s Robot, 2.0, also features Akshay Kumar. While Rajinikanth will portray the character of Chitti, a robot, Kumar plays the antagonist.
