Prabhu Deva’s directorial film Rowdy Rathore, which is a direct lift from the hit Telugu film Vikramarkudu will see southern star Vijay in a special cameo
Vijay, who had last acted in the remake of 3 Idiots titled Nanban will be seen shaking a leg with Akshay Kumar.If rumours are to be believed, Vijay is doing the special number absolutely free of cost for the director. Deva was keen to have the Tamil actor, singer and dancer Vijay, who he’d earlier directed in Pokiri do a cameo in the film. On learning that Akshay was part of the song, Vijay – a huge Akshay Kumar fan jumped at the opportunity. “I have always been a fan of Akshay Kumar since his Khiladi days. The promos of Rowdy Rathore are very interesting. Prabhu Deva just had to ask me once and I readily agreed. They were very friendly and I will never forget the experience of shooting the song.”
Apparently, the Velayudham actor was in Mumbai shooting for his upcoming project Thupaki directed by A R Murugadoss.
