Amy Jackson is all set to step into Aishwarya Rai Bachchan’s shoes in the sequel of Rajinikanth’s Robot. Aishwarya played the role of Rajini’s love interest in the 2010 film and in the sequel 2.0, the makers have roped in Amy. The Bollywood actress talks about how it feels to replace the most beautiful women in the world in a candid chat with Times of India. When asked if she was nervous about the upcoming film and Amy says, “Aishwarya Rai Bachchan is an inspiration. I’ve watched Robot several times.(Laughs) I have literally followed in Aishwarya’s footsteps. But our characters aren’t related.”
Talking about her role in 2.0, the actress said, “It’s opposite of who I am. I’ve had to change my demeanour and attitude for this part. I also have action scenes, which I love. Stunt directors were flown in from Germany and England for this film.” The S. Shankar film features Rajinikanth in titular role much like the first film.

However, this time Akshay Kumar will play the antagonist and will seen in a really weird avatar in the movie. News has it that he plays a scientist who transforms into a crow after his experiment goes wrong. Amy was asked about her experience of working with Rajnikanth. She says, “Rajinikanth is a dream to work with. He’s unaffected by fame and adulation.
He was nervous when hundreds of locals turned up to see him on our set in a village. He doesn’t like the spotlight, which makes him a legend.” Well, Rajni’s humble behaviour is known to all. Despite being so popular the superstar leads a simple life away from the limelight. Amy Jackson has previously worked with Shankar in Vikram’s I and 2.0 is her second movie with the filmmaker. Ask her about her experience with Shankar and Amy quips, “Shankar has moulded me as an actor. I shot I with him for three years. His vision has helped me grow.” After Shankar if any filmmaker inspires Amy then its none other than our Sanjay Leela Bhansali. She adds,”Sanjay Leela Bhansali’s work inspires me. I also like Imtiaz Ali. He writes quirky roles for actors.”
