This Actor replaces Akshay Kumar in the sequel of Rowdy Rathore
Released in 2012, Akshay Kumar’s superhit film ‘Rowdy Rathore’ went on to break box office records with its powerful storyline and iconic characters. Akshay’s portrayal of the angry young man left an indelible mark on the minds of viewers, and the famous dialogue “Don’t make me angry” became a cultural phenomenon. The film was a Hindi remake of director SS Rajamouli’s Tamil film ‘Vikramarkudu’ and further cemented Akshay’s position as one of Bollywood’s most bankable stars.
Given the success of the film, talks of a sequel have been doing the rounds for several months. However, recent updates reveal that Akshay Kumar’s character will not be a part of the upcoming sequel, and another actor has been chosen to take his place. This news has come as a surprise to many fans, who are eagerly awaiting further updates on the highly-anticipated sequel.
The sequel of the superhit film ‘Rowdy Rathore’ has been a topic of discussion among fans for quite some time now. The sequel will be produced by Sanjay Leela Bhansali and Shabina Khan, while the director of the film will be Anees Bazmee. The first installment was directed by Prabhu Deva, and it had Akshay Kumar in the lead role. However, in the sequel, Siddharth Malhotra will replace Akshay Kumar. Siddharth Malhotra had earlier worked with Akshay Kumar in the film ‘Brothers’, where he played Akshay’s on-screen brother. It will be interesting to see how Siddharth Malhotra performs in this action-packed sequel.
It has been decided by the makers of ‘Rowdy Rathore 2’ that Siddharth Malhotra will be portraying the character of a tough and aggressive person in the movie. Siddharth, who is known for his roles as an army officer in ‘Aiyaary’ and ‘Sher Shah’, has received immense appreciation for his acting skills. Apart from this, he is also set to play the role of a police officer in the upcoming web series ‘Indian Police Force’, which is eagerly awaited by the audience.
It is not an easy task to replace Akshay Kumar
It is indeed a challenging task to find a suitable replacement for Akshay Kumar, who has left an indelible impression with his portrayal of the character ‘Rowdy Rathore’. However, there are reports suggesting that Akshay Kumar is not keen to work in the sequel of the film. One of the possible reasons for this could be the poor performance of his five films at the box office last year. Despite his remarkable contribution to the Indian film industry, every actor has to face ups and downs in their career, and Akshay Kumar is no exception.
Akshay Kumar’s Last 6 Films Did Not Perform Well
Akshay Kumar, a popular Bollywood actor, delivered several hit movies in the past, including the successful film ‘Suryavanshi’ which made a great collection at the box office. However, his last five consecutive releases – ‘Bachchan Pandey’, ‘Emperor Prithviraj’, ‘Raksha Bandhan’, ‘Ramsetu’, and ‘Selfie’ failed to impress the audience, resulting in huge losses. Even his OTT release ‘Katputli’ received a lukewarm response from the viewers. This sudden string of flops may have affected his decision to not be a part of the sequel of ‘Rowdy Rathore’.
