Akshay Kumar, who will be making his Tamil debut in the upcoming sci-fi thriller 2.O, has said, there is only one superstar in the country and that is Rajinikanth.
The clarification came when the host of a promotional event addressed the Hindi actor as 'superstar Akshay Kumar'.
"The lady here announced my name as Superstar. But there is only one Superstar in the country and that is Rajinikanth sir," Akshay has said, according to a report from Deccan Chronicle.
Akshay, who plays the main antagonist in the movie, has said it is an honour to work with Rajinikanth in a straight Tamil flick.
"It is an honour working with Rajini sir in a straight Tamil movie - it is like a dream come true. I am very happy about it and eagerly awaiting the response of people here after its release. I want to be part of more South films."
When asked about his love for Chennai, Akshay has said, "I have shot a few films here in the city including 'Sabse Bada Khiladi', and 'Meri Biwi Ka Jawaab Nahin' with Sridevi madam, which released a long time ago. There's been a big gap since, but I'm happy I got the chance to shoot '2.O' here."
The 48-year-old actor has said happiness and good food are the secret behind his fit body.
"Happiness and good food are the secret of my fit body. I always insist on having dinner before sunset and not eating anything after that. You should work out for an hour daily. If you cannot give even one hour to your body in 24 hours, kill yourself!"
On his favourite South Indian food, Akshay has said, he loves masala dosa and coconut chutney.
"I love masala dosa, upma, coconut chutney and many South Indian dishes. My favourite rice dish is bisi bele bath."
