Now, during a recent interview Shabinaa Khan, who had co-produced the film with Sanjay Leela Bhansali confirmed the news and also revealed that Akshay Kumar will returns as the main protagonist of the film. Talking about the film, Shabinaa told Mumbai Mirror, “We are in the process of writing Rowdy Rathore 2 right now and inshallah, it will feature Akshay in the lead. Right from Toilet: Ek Prem Katha to PadMan, his films have ample of humour. He can manage anything and everything and is one of the only all-rounders we have in the industry today.”
The Mirror report states, “Shabinaa refused
to divulge further details pertaining to the project, a source close to the
development informed that it is expected to go on the floors sometime next
year. In the first installment, Akshay was seen in a double role—as Inspector
Vikram Singh Rathore and a local thug, Shiva. The film was the official remake
of SS Rajamouli’s 2006 Telugu actioner, Vikramarkudu, and featured Sonakshi
Sinha as the female lead.”
