Akshay Kumar to team up with Prabhu Dheva for Rowdy Rathore sequel!

Yes, Akki will don his rowdy avatar once again on the big screen…

Akshay Kumar is all set to join hands with Prabhu Dheva and Sanjay Leela Bhansali for the sequel of Rowdy Rathore. Starring Khiladi Kumar in the lead, the film we hear will be co-produced by SLB and Shabina Khan. And Prabhu Dheva will obviously direct the sequel as well. While Sonakshi Sinha played the female lead in the 2012 blockbuster, apparently she may not star in the second installment. We say so coz the makers are yet to finalise a heroine for the action entertainer.

While talking to a leading daily, a source said, “Bhansali will put Bajirao Mastani on floors in October and Rowdy Rathore 2 will roll by the mid of next year. The sequel was in the pipeline ever since the film entered the Rs 100 crore club.”

Co-producer Shabina Khan confirmed the news and told the daily, “Yes, we are making Rowdy Rathore 2. We are in the process of locking the script.”

Now we can’t wait to see Akki back in action but we wonder who will romance him this time around. Maybe a newbie, who knows! Guess we’ll have to wait and watch.
