Together they had created box office dhamaka when in 2012 when Akshay Kumar teamed up for the first time as producer and actor in Rowdy Rathore. The film created box office havoc. The duo is all set to join hands again for a sequel to Rowdy Rathore.
In fact the idea has been in the pipeline for the longest time. “Lekin Akshay ko phursat kahan? (Where does Akshay have the time)? Sanjay Bhansali has sounded him out on several occasions. When in January 2018 Bhansali and Akshay hosted a press conference to announce that Akshay’s Padman was moving out of January 26 slot to accommodate Bhansali’s Padmaavat, Akshay had jokingly commented that he wanted Rowdy Rathore 2 to be made,” says the source.
Well, the announcement is all set to come true. Apparently, the sequel to Rowdy Rathore will happen in 2020. While the first film was directed by Prabhu Dheva the second Rowdy Rathore would be helmed by another director.
