Mumbai, June 16 Akshay Kumar starrer “Rowdy Rathore” has garnered over Rs.100 crore at the box office, sparking a buzz that plans of a sequel may soon be under way. And the films’s co-producer, UTV Motion Pictures’ CEO Siddharth Roy Kapoor doesn’t rule out the possiblity either.
“You know, there are a lot of interesting thoughts about what we should be doing – sequel, prequel, etc. But I think it’s important for Sanjay (Bhansali), Prabhu Deva and us to really sit down and discuss on what we do and obviously along with Akshay take a call on what’s next,” the 37-year-old said here Friday night at the success bash of the film.
Asked to react on filmmaker Vidhu Vinod Chopra’s recent comment about rubbish films making Rs.100 crore, Kapoor said: “I really don’t have any comment.”
However, the film’s lead actor Akshay Kumar had something to say to it.
“I feel that whatever he wanted to say, he said. But I have watched ‘Ferrari Ki Sawaari’ and I liked that,” he said.
“Rowdy Rathore” co-producer Sanjay Leela Bhansali was also nonchalant.
“He (Chopra) is my mentor. If he said something, I am happy,” he said.
Directed by Prabhu Deva, “Rowdy Rathore,” a remake of the 2006 Telugu hit “Vikramarkudu” starring Ravi Teja. It marked Akshay’s comeback to action after seven years.
