Working on her birthday has become a regular occurrence for Amy Jackson, who turned 25 this week. She was on the set of Shankar’s ‘I’ (2015) during her big day and this year she flew down from Amsterdam to join the shoot of the filmmaker’s next feature, ‘2.0,’ which also stars superstar Rajinikanth.
Jackson gave her views on the power Rajinikanth holds. “The minute you land in Chennai, you will find him everywhere. The world rightly thinks he is a superhuman. Yes, of course, he is a great actor; you can’t scale such success otherwise. But stardom aside, he is also the most humble, kind and gracious person I have known. A simple conversation with him will make you realise the value of gratitude and how it is the way forward in life. That’s a super trick for life.”
Most of Jackson’s scenes in the film, she says, are with the legendary star, reports Mid Day. “Performing stunts in front of him was difficult, but he isn’t the kind of person who can intimidate. He is so caring and loving.” The film’s schedule has been long drawn out, but Jackson says it’s always great to be back on a film set. “It has been a long, cumbersome wait, which can get frustrating for sure. But now that I am here, I feel it has been worthwhile. You should see our set; everyone is bubbling with energy and the positive vibe is enriching.”
She then laughed off rumours about her liaison with Salman Khan, which were triggered when the superstar attended the film’s teaser launch last November. Jackson said, “I think Salman wanted to come down to show support for the film because it was a prestigious project. The fact that he showed up was amazing. He is such a great actor, a huge star. I was supposed to do Kick (2014), but couldn’t because of I. To work with Salman is a dream.”
‘2.0’ is due to release later this year.
