After Khans, Kapoor Bhansali opt for Kumar
Sanjay Leela Bhansali, the name synonymous for granduer and drama moves on to try something out of his confort zone action. After working with superstar Khans like SRK (Devdas) & Salman (Hum Dil De Chuke Sanam), Mr. Bhansali has agreed to co-produce an action movie titled Rowdy Rathore starring Akshay Kumar.
For the first time Bhansali is indulging in an out-and-out actioner that will also star Sonakshi Sinha.
“To me an action film is totally an alien concept. At this juncture as a filmmaker, I want to move out of the comfort zone and do things that are new and untried,” said Bhansali.
Southern star Prabhu Deva will wield the megaphone for the movie. He showed his magic when he went behind the camera to direct Salman Khan in “Wanted” that turned out to be one of the biggest hits of 2009 and now he is expected to break stereotypical boundaries of the action genre with “Rowdy Rathore”.
Akshay, known for actioners like “Khiladi” and “Mohra“, will return to hardcore action with the film. In recent times, mostly seen in funny films like “Singh Is Kinng” and “Namastey London“, the 43-year-old star will undergo rigorous physical training in preparation for the role that will have top notch action and choreography.
The dynamite combination of Sanjay Leela Bhansali, Akshay Kumar and Prabhu Deva calls for a film that is aesthetically larger than life packed with mind blowing stunts and impressive choreography. The film has box-office success written all over it.
