  • Wow Great news…

    But if they will continue with the same story n characters just like Dabangg 2,then i think nothing is actually left…

    It should have different characters…
    But Still thinking,there was actually no need of a sequel to Rowdy Rathore!!!

    I want to see the sequel to Holiday…eagerly waiting for its announcement..

  • Wow! That’s a great news. Akshay Kumar suits inn a role of cop. Rowdy Rathore had good story and great performances. I just hope they will take the next step and work on believable action scenes unlike South.

  • Rowdy Rathore is one of my favorite masala movies.
    Even though one will argue that it is brainless,one can’t deny the fact that it is highly entertaining.Akshay sir’s comic timing and action skills made it a must watch.

    And hey,the massy song chinta ta

  • @aeeyy
    Yes, agree RR is one of the highly entertaining masal films along with Dabangg n CE…

  • Not a fan of Akshay…. but RR is his most entertaining film by a distance.. it was more entertaining than Dabang, Chennai Express and Wanted.

  • Now thats the difference,Aamir has no films after P.K…and Akki has
    Singh is bling
    Rowdy Rathore 2

  • Rowdy rathore 2?? Nothing great in rowdy rathore itself..over acting and loud screaming in that whole film.
    In the whole film sonakshi is addresed as ‘maal’ by akki.
    Rowdy rathore is loaded with such Cheapness

  • Now i don’t want to see Sonakshi in this film….
    Jo main bolta hoon,wo main karta hoon,jo main nahin bolta,wo main definitely krta hu…
    Some epic dialogues!!!

  • @dark boy
    RR only had the cheap word “maal”,
    And what did Aamir Khan production film Delhi Belly had???
    Full on abusive n vulgar words with cheap scenes…

  • Maybe some will say I’m partial because I am an Akshay sir fan but to me Rowdy Rathore was an entertaining masala by miles.It was like a 2 in 1 affair,.And from a neutral point,this is true!!!
    My favorite masalas over the last couple of years
    1.Rowdy Rathore

    @Babaji and Housefull 3

    Hoilday2[confirmed by A R Murugadoss]

  • Though not a fan of Akshay Rowdy Rathore is very entertaining movie. But sequel of this movie is not needed btw asit is much more of a single entity then a franchise builder.
    BTW have you heard about the title of our bhai next film ‘Bajirao Bajrangi’ for this our bhai has done special training to speak Bhojpuri properly as bhai wants to grow his fan base in bihar circuit

  • Only remakes and sequel of that remake and create a franchise from that..Masterplan from akki to save his drowning career

  • @dark boy
    Better Care for your Aamir’s career,coz he has no films after P.K…
    He appears on screen like a halley’s comet…

  • i dont like copy paste Rowdy Rathore, directed nice but no chance to like movie like this.. Sry akki fans, bt its truth,
    he should do movies like Holiday, great work

  • @babaji ka Thullu
    Lol Aamir wasnt in DB he only had last dance sequence.
    Go watch akki’s kambakht ishq it will take you to new level of vulgarity done and spoken by AKKI HIMSELF

  • Akki is first bollywood actor to make sucessful sequel phir hera pheri is sequel of hera pheri this has become trend in hindi film . Rowdy rathore 2 will become huge blockbuster .

  • @babaji ka thullu halley’s comet is a beautiful thing to watch and it is a event lyk AAMIR
    better than Akki who is like Eclipse which comes every now and then and People dont care

  • I personally akshay should not touch rowdy rathode. It is very entertaining movie. He should Hera pheri instead rr2.
    And y this Akki fans always welcome Akkis decision there will no surprise if he of sequel of even joker his fans will be very happy.

  • @sadiq had hai yaar teri bhi , jb dekho waiting for natwarlal. are bhai people wait only for 3khans , hrithik , ranbir , movies with super hit music and of couse sequels of hit movies.
    i accept his movies are silent hits bt then also nobody waits for his movies

  • akshay kumar all movies are looking promising except shaukeen…after 2014
    2)singh is bling-150cr+
    4)shaukeen-below 100cr.
    5)warriors-200-250cr.(if got perfect release date)
    6)housefull 3-150cr.
    7)rowdy rathore 2-200cr.(coz of a sequeal)…
    best of luck akki for ur upcoming movies…

  • @babaji
    Aamir does one movie when Akki does 4 movies.
    Dhoom 3= 285 crores

    Holiday+Boss+Special 26+OUATIMD= 280 crores

    So in 2013
    1 Aamir film > 4 Akki films combined.

    Dont worry P.K. will do more business than
    (It’s Entertainment+Baby+Singh Is Bling+Warrior+Housefull3+Rowdy rathore 2+Namastey london 2+Shaukeen Remake
    Priyan’s next+Singh Is King 2+Hoilday2) all combined :)

  • Looking forward to Warrior remake. Akki should do more original films or remake hollywood films instead of making sequels or south remakes.

  • The first one was good and entertaining.

    I heard earlier that it would be a prequel, ie., story of Vikram Rathore.

    But honestly, the entertainiing part of the movie was the story of Shiva (rowdy rathore).

    It had a nice fusion of comedy, action and songs.

    If this new movie is a prequel, i don’t think it would be that entertaining.

    Instead they should continue with the character of Shiva and 2G’s new adventures just like Munnabhai series. The fun element need to stay.
