Reportedly, the idea has been in the pipeline since the longest time and while SLB had even approached Akshay, things didn’t work out as Akshay already had too much on his platter. But we hear that they are finally coming together for the sequel and that an announcement will be made soon.
Buzz has it that the sequel will go on floors in 2020. While Rowdy Rathore was directed by Prabhudheva, grapevine has it that another director will wield the megaphone for the second edition. Bhansali will be bankrolling the project.
Meanwhile, Akshay is busy with the shooting of his next, Sooryavanshi, which also stars Katrina Kaif. Directed by Rohit Shetty, Sooryavanshi will release on March 27, 2020.
