After Karthik Aryan, Sidharth Malhotra set to replace Akshay Kumar in Rowdy Rathore 2?

Akshay Kumar has made his mark with iconic roles in some famous Bollywood films. Sequels are being made to some of his films, but the directors are looking for new talent to play the lead role, not the character himself. In Bhool Bhulaiyaa 2, Kartik Aaryan replaced Khiladi Kumar, who played his role in the 2007 film. The Shehzada actor was praised for taking on the role brilliantly, that he was even asked for Hera Pheri 3 to replace the star actor. Now Sidharth Malhotra is also all set to replace the superstar in the sequel of another film.

Yes, you read that right, the Shershah actor will reportedly replace Akshay Kumar in Rowdy Rathore 2. A source close to the development suggests that Malhotra is in talks to play the lead in the action drama sequel. Shabina Khan has been trying to develop Rowdy Rathore 2 for some time, but was waiting for all the factors to fall into place. Now a source has informed Pinkvilla that Shabina Khan is in talks with Sidharth Malhotra to play the cop in Rowdy Rathore 2.

According to reports, Siddharth Malhotra has shown interest in the project but is wondering whether to play a cop, apart from Rohit Shetty’s cop universe. The actor will be seen playing a police officer in the web series Indian Police opposite Shilpa Shetty. Well, things are not confirmed yet and the makers are considering to release the film soon, probably in the next 2 months.

Rowdy Rathore 2 will be produced by Shabina Khan in association with Sanjay Leela Bhansali, who also bankrolled the first installment. The cast is yet to be confirmed and the makers are in talks with a top director who delivered a blockbuster last year. If these reports are accepted, Siddharth Malhotra will headline Rowdy Rathore 2 and the film will go on floors by the end of May.

With this news, the surest question that will arise will be, “Akshay Kumar to play a role in Rowdy Rathore 2?” Well, there is no word yet on the actor’s involvement in the sequel to his 2012 film, which he played a dual role of a rowdy and a policeman.
