Akshay Kumar's transformation in Shankar's '2.0' got everyone talking from day one. The actor, who will be seen in a negative avatar after a long time, revealed that how the entire process of dressing up for his role every day was a daunting task. 

"It was really a hard process for me to get the prosthetics done. Three people used to work on my body and I had to stay patient... that was tough. I would say that the whole process of prosthetics made me a much calmer and patient person. I am already a patient person, but this made me more subtle and mellow at that time," Akshay was quoted as saying by a news agency. 

"When I used to go back home, I knew that I have to do the same thing again tomorrow morning. The make-up was so hard and covered that it used to close all the pores of my body and during my entire six hours of working, my body sweat used to not come out. So in the end when they used to remove the prosthetic, I had the smell of sweat," added the actor.

While many of his fans were shocked to see Akshay's new avatar, the actor revealed that his daughter Nitara was quite excited to see her father in such a getup. "I clicked a lot of selfies with my family. My wife and daughter were there with me. My daughter was quite excited to see me in the look and she was not scared at all... because she saw that some people are putting something on her father's face. She was fine," the actor said. 

A sequel to 'Robot', '2.0' stars Rajinikanth, Amy Jackson and Adil Hussain along with Akshay Kumar. The film will be releasing on 29th November.
