Akshay Kumar may be known as a superstar but he is an underrated actor, said his Rustom co-star Ileana D'Cruz. Ileana feels that people talk more about his superstardom as compared to his acting skills. Asked about the experience of working with Akshay, Ileana told "It was really amazing to work with him… He's one of the most underrated actors we have. Ileana said that she was surprised as to how the film got over quickly and that she was upset when the film was wrapped.
"I normally don't get emotional when a film gets over. I am actually excited. I was pretty upset when the film was wrapped and that I couldn't get back on the set to play the role opposite Akshay," said Ileana. Ileana said that her relationship with Akshay in the film is fantastic. "The kind of scenes we have done together have an immense amount of chemistry. I haven't experienced this chemistry with any other actor. There was this beautiful onscreen relationship we shared," said Ileana.
