Bhubaneswar: While the country is going gaga over the brilliant visual effects in Rajinikanth starrer Robot 2.0 where Akshay Kumar portrays the ornithologist-turned-villain, the latter’s fans in Odisha celebrated the release of his film with fanfare.
Odisha Akkians in Bhubaneswar erected a huge cut-out of the Padman of Bollywood at Maharaja Picture Palace and cut a cake shaped as 2.0 to commemorate his latest film release. They also sported T-shirts printed with the ‘Pakshiraja’ character of Akshay.
The Gold actor took to Twitter to thank his Odia fans for this gesture and said, “Only you guys matter… Thank you for the love.”
