Is Prabhu Deva worried about Akshay Kumar’s box office appeal?

Why else is he going to make three south stars a part of the promotional campaign for Rowdy Rathore?

Rowdy Rathore marks Akshay Kumar’s return to action after a long time. It is also the film that could possibly resurrect his career after two years of flops. Naturally, Rowdy Rathore’s director Prabhu Deva is a nervous man. He has to also meet the expectations his fans have of him after his first Bollywood directorial venture Wanted was a huge hit. With Rowdy Rathore’s release date of June 1 approaching quickly, it looks like Prabhu Deva is getting increasingly anxious. He told a national daily recently that he is planning a party with three southern stars who have been associated with the project.

Rowdy Rathore is a remake of the Telugu film Vikramarkudu, starring Ravi Teja. The film was later remade as Veera Madakari in Kannada and Siruthai in Tamil. Sudeep starred in the former and Karthi in the latter. Prabhu Deva is hoping that these three stars and Akshay will party together in his home in Chennai by the end of May. He has already spoken to them about it. The choreographer-turned-director is an icon in southern cinema and we won’t be surprised if all of them agree to it. There is also a buzz that Bengali superstar Prosenjit, who has starred in the Bengali remake, might be invited. While the prospect of all these stars coming together excites us no end, it also makes us wonder: does this mean Prabhu Deva has no faith in his film and his star? Is that why he is resorting to this publicity gimmick? Is he worried Akshay’s fistfights won’t be accepted as audiences have got used to his comic timing? Prabhu Deva has even roped in south star Vijay to do a cameo in the film. We must say, Prabhu Deva’s move doesn’t inspire any confidence in us about his film. Hopefully for him, we are the only ones who think so.
