Akshay Kumar to reteam with 'Rowdy Rathore' director
The actor will be starring in the filmmaker's remake of a South Indian film.
A source told the Hindustan Times: "Both [Kumar and Bhansali] had a great time working on Rowdy Rathore. Sanjay is confident that Akshay can carry off this role perfectly, given his image as a rugged action hero.
"Right now, Sanjay has put everything on hold and is focusing on Ram Leela. Akshay is busy with the pre-production work of Once Upon a Time in Mumbai. At this point, the female lead and director haven't been finalised yet."
Rowdy Rathore joined the '100 crore club' after its record-breaking opening weekend last month.
The box office collections for the action thriller were also the biggest of the actor's two-decade career.
