New Delhi, July 15 (IANS) Actor Adil Hussain has heaped praise on Rajinikanth, with whom he has starred in Tamil actioner “2.0”. The “Life of Pi” star said that the superstar is humble and doesn’t care about his appearance which is “very inspiring”.
Adil began shooting the film earlier this week in Chennai. Though he is yet to act with the superstar, he has only good words to say about the star, who is lovingly called ‘Thalaiva’.
“I have been watching his (Rajinikanth) films since childhood and I am fascinated by his action. I’ve heard from people who have closely worked with him and some of his relatives that he is an amazing human being. So I know a lot about his humility which I think is more interesting,” Adil, the brand ambassador of the upcoming fashion gala North East India Fashion Week, told IANS here.
“Just to meet this person who is hugely popular… He is humble and doesn’t care how he looks like in everyday life which is very inspiring. He doesn’t give a damn about it. He is an actor and he plays his characters and does a good job,” said Adil, who hails from Assam.
Adil, who featured in “English Vinglish” and has done a variety of roles, did not give out much about his role in “2.0”.
“I can’t talk about my role in the film. I will go back to the film’s shooting in Chennai this month. I am not sure about the exact dates. They took my dates in February, but Chennai floods happened, so they are organising dates again,” he said.
