Here's why Akshay Kumar agreed to play a villain in Rajinikanth's 2.0

Bollywood's Khiladi Kumar aka Akshay Kumar is known to play a larger than life hero onscreen, but next year, one will see the actor in a negative role after 16 long years in Rajinikanth's '2.0.'

The 'Toilet Ek Prem Katha' actor, who is loved by his fans as the moralistic hero, was last seen in a negative role in 'Ajnabee,' which was released in 2001.

In an interview, Akshay revealed the reasons that prompted him to willingly don the evil cloak once again. Akshay said, "The script, Shankar sir, Rajini sir- the whole combination. And I always wanted to work in South. Heard so much about the professionalism. It's great to be a part of this kind of a film."

He further added, "It's been long since I have done a negative role. I played a negative role long back, in a film called 'Ajnabee.' And that's why I did it."

A sequel to the 2010 Tamil film 'Enthiran,' '2.0' is an upcoming Indian science fiction film written and directed by S. Shankar, co-written by B. Jeyamohan and produced by Subaskaran Allirajah, founder of Lyca Productions. The film will feature Rajinikanth reprising the roles of Dr. Vaseegaran and Chitti, alongside Akshay Kumar and Amy Jackson.

'2.0' is slated to release in Tamil, Telugu and Hindi on 25 January 2018.
