Actor Akshay Kumar, who is all set to share screen space with superstar Rajinikanth aka Thalaivar in 2.0, says that there's a lot to learn from the South industry. The Bollywood Khiladi was present at the grand music launch of his debut Tamil film 2.0 in Dubai yesterday. At the event, Akshay said, "Rajini sir is the real superstar. I would like to thank Shankar sir for giving me the opportunity of working with a legend like Rajinikanth. I could've never imagined that I will get a chance to work in such a big and costly film like 2.0, reports news agency IANS (the reports are also citing the film as Asia's most expensive movie so far with a budget of Rs. 400 crore)

Akshay Kumar, who was last seen in Toilet: Ek Prem Katha, also added, "There's a lot that we have to learn from South because the way they work, we have to understand a lot now. They work in unity and respect each other's talent, we have to learn that."

Akshay, for the first time, will feature as an antagonist in the film as an eccentric scientist called Richard while Rajinikanth returns as scientist Vaseegaran. Of his films, Akshay said, "I have done 130 films in Bollywood. 2.0 was my 131st film. I can only say that during the making of those 130 films, I got to learn little from every film, but I was learning throughout the shooting of this film," reports IANS.

The music launch of 2.0 was a lavish event, which was hosted by filmmaker Karan Johar, actor Rana Daggubati and RJ Balaji.

Akshay along with filmmaker S Shankar, Rajinikanth, composer A R Rahman, who has also composed the music of 2.0 and actress Amy Jackson, who plays the lead role in the film, attended the audio launch at the Burj Park in Dubai.

2.0 is a sequel to the 2010 Tamil blockbuster Enthiran and is slated for a release in early 2018.

Akshay Kumar is currently seen as a judge in TV reality comedy show The Great Indian Laughter Challenge. Except 2.0 Akshay has Padman, produced by wife Twinkle Khanna and Gold in the pipeline.
