Good news for Akshay Kumar and Sonakshi Sinha fans as Rowdy Rathore 2 is on cards. SS Rajamouli's father and writer KV Vijayendra Prasad recently confirmed that he is working on the script of Akshay-Sonakshi starrer Rowdy Rathore 2. Confirming the news to Mid Day, KV Vijayendra Prasad stated that he was approached by producer Sanjay Leela Bhansali for writing the script and the work is in progress.
"I am currently writing the Rowdy Rathore 2 script. Bhansali saab (Sanjay Leela Bhansali, producer) approached me to write the sequel. I should be able to complete the script soon," he said.
A source close to the project told Mid Day that Sonakshi Sinha will also be a part of the sequel and that the movie is expected to hit the floors next year. ALSO READ:The Kapil Sharma Show: Akshay Kumar Cracks A Joke On Katrina Kaif And Vicky Kaushal’s Hush-Hush Wedding, Watch Video
A source was quoted as saying, "Sonakshi Sinha will reprise her role of Paro. While the principal characters of Shiva and Paro are expected to remain in the sequel, the story will not pick up where Rowdy Rathore ended. This will be a completely new narrative. The script will be ready in the next few months, and the movie is expected to go on floors in the end of 2022."
Akshay is currently gearing up for the release of Atrangi Re. The film also stars Dhanush and Sara Ali Khan, and is slated to release tomorrow on Disney+Hotstar. The actor's other upcoming projects include Ram Setu, Prithviraj, OMG 2, and Bachchan Pandey. Sonakshi, on the other hand, will be seen in a horror-comedy Kakuda.
