For many of his fans who are tired of his onscreen antics and gummy smile, the news of Akshay Kumar doing an action film was like a waft of fresh breeze. Akshay treads back into his favourite territory with Rowdy Rathore, a film that will be directed by Prabhu Deva and produced by Sanjay Leela Bhansali.
There were speculations about the movie’s story, and the insiders claim that the movie is a remake of a south film. But no one knew which film. Now that secret is out. The film is a remake of the 2006 Telugu hit Vikramarkudu starring Ravi Teja and Anushka Shetty.
In fact, Rowdy Rathore is the official remake of Vikramarkudu that was directed by the hit filmmaker S S Rajamouli. But, if you think that the movie is going to be high on action, you are wrong. The movie will be a masala entertainer with hilarious sequences and crass dialogues. The original was released with an ‘A’ certificate because of its vulgar comedy and violence.
So what can you expect from the remake? A blast at the box office. The other remake of the same film in Tamil was a superhit.
In the movie Akshay Kumar will be seen in a double role and will romance Sonakshi Sinha.
