Get ready because on June 1st, Khiladi Kumar is back. Yes, Akshay Kumar is putting on his action avatar and is ready to thrill audiences once again in Rowdy Rathore. Directed by Prabhu Deva and also starring Sonakshi Sinha, Rowdy Rathore is a full on and non stop hard core masala action film! The story follows….
Shiva (Akshay Kumar) is a small time conman in love with Priya (Sonakshi Sinha), a pretty girl whom he met at a wedding he wasn’t invited to. Into this picture perfect world enters six year old Neha who inexplicably believes Shiva to be her dad! And if this wasn’t bad enough, Shiva also becomes the object of a series of life threatening attacks by a gang of deadly criminals who seem to know something he doesn’t. While trying desperately to save his life and love, Shiva stumbles upon a deadly secret. A secret that will take him to a small town in Bihar; a town terrorized by a ruthless politician and the mafia he controls; a town whose inhabitants only hope for redemption is…Shiva!
This is Akshay’s first action-thriller after eight years. In an interview with HT he said, “I feel like a newcomer when it comes to action. I didn’t do it for eight years and I’m starting it all over again now. So I have that newcomer feeling. But I am going to take action to another level with Rowdy Rathore. It is very raw.”
Known for his daring action scenes which he does himself he added, “I am going through a lot of action practice now. You can see my palms, the skin is all dead. I am doing it so rigorously because I still have that greed of leaping from one building to another, jumping from a chopper, climbing up on a plane and doing one stunt to another on my own.”
