Robot 2 will mark the first time Akshay has worked with Rajinikanth and he is understandably excited. “I feel like I am on top of the world. It’s all right getting kicked and punched. I have done that all my life. It is great to be punched by a superhero like Rajinikanth!” Akshay had said in a previous interview.
Keeping in mind the magnitude of the project, Akshay has kept aside a huge chunk of his dates for the shoot — about 60 days, according to Deccan Chronicles.
“Akshay is caught up with Rustom at present, but he will start shooting for Robot 2 around May-June this year. He has allotted around 60 days for this film — which is a lot, given that he ends up working on four films on an average every year,” a source close to the actor told us.
The general norm for Akshay has been that he allocates about 30-35 days to each of his film projects, and does up to four films annually. He also ensures that he gets some time off for a vacation with wife Twinkle Khanna and their kids, during the summer months.
