Akshay Kumar, who plays the role of Dr. Richard in the film, said playing an anti-hero was a very different experience.
“Shankar’s not a director but a scientist. It’s unbelievable what he wants to say through his movie. Because of my contract, I can’t reveal much. Otherwise, I’d love to tell you guys more. If I disclose anything, they will cut my remuneration (smiles),” said Akshay Kumar.
Talking about his preparation for the character, Akshay Kumar said, “I just learned my lines and performed. I didn’t do any specific training. Shankar had done so much of homework, and he had already got into the skin of my character before me. So, I just had to enter into his vision and perform my role. It took me about three and a half hours to apply makeup and one and a half hours to remove the same.”
