Actor Sudhanshu Pandey, who was seen in Thala Ajith's Billa 2 and Meagamann starring Arya, has bagged an important negative role in superstar Rajinikanth's upcoming film, 2.o.
In an interview to Deccan Chronicle, the Hindi actor has opened up about his role in the most anticipated sci-fi thriller.
"My first film in Hindi was with Akshay in 2000. And '2.0' is my third film with him. We shot our portions in Delhi recently; I play an evil scientist in the film and my role forms an interesting part of the script. My look will be different from the conventional ones I have had so far," Sudhanshu has said.
He will soon be shooting his combination scene with one of the biggest actors of India.
"I have seen his films since my childhood and I am just waiting to start my shoot with him. I've always have had this on my mind, that whenever I would get a chance to share screenspace with Rajinikanth in a film, I would never let it go. He's a wonderful human being. We'll be shooting our combination scenes in Chennai soon," he has said when asked about sharing screen space with the Lingaa star.
Talking about Tamil films, the 41-year-old actor has said, "I've always said that Tamil films and the people who make them are fantastic. From the actors to the technicians, every one of them is warm, friendly and genuine. It's a privilege to work with extraordinarily humble people like Shankar, and of course, Rajinikanth. I am excited beyond words. God has been quite kind to me."
Known for portraying negative roles, the actor has said he wouldn't mind trying his hand at various other roles. Also, he would love to work with film-makers like Mani Ratnam and Gautham Menon.
"Though it's cool to play a baddie, I would love to play character roles. Moreover, I want to do more films in Tamil because K'town is full of quality cinema. I have learnt a lot being here. It has been a great learning experience so far. My dream of working with Shankar has become true and I hope the same will happen with Mani Ratnam and Gautham Menon too," Sudhanshu has said.
