During a recent interview with a leading channel, Aamir Khan revealed that Rajinikanth wanted him to do his role in the eagerly-awaited ‘2.0’ as ‘Thalaiva’ felt that he was not healthy enough to play Chitti. B-town’s resident ‘Perfectionist’ added that he turned down the request as he felt that no one could have played that role better than Rajini himself.
“I told Shankar that I will not be able to do it, and only Rajini sir could do this film. I have already seen the first part and I have loved it. I am a huge fan of Rajini sir, and because of the impression that I got from that film, I couldn’t imagine myself or anyone else in the lead role apart from Rajini sir for 2.0. So I didn’t do it. It wasn’t a tough decision for me because I know that it is going to be a super hit in all languages,” he added.
Well, this is quite a revelation and is bound to create quite a buzz amongst movie buffs. On a related note, ‘2.0’ is a sequel to the 2010 release ‘Enthiran’ and will hit screens in January 2018. In it, Rajinikanth will be seen alongside Bollywood star Akshay Kumar and the gorgeous Amy Jackson. Akki will be playing a negative role in what will be the first Tamil film of career. The ‘Khiladi’ will be seen in a shocking new avatar in ‘2.0’.
