KV Vijayendra Prasad has confirmed that he is in the process of scripting the sequel to the Akshay Kumar blockbuster ‘Rowdy Rathore’.

Although, co-producer Shabinaa Khan had announced that ‘Rowdy Rathore 2’ will be released in 2019, the film is still in pre-production stages.

Vijayendra Prasad was cited in Mid-Day saying, “I am currently writing the Rowdy Rathore 2 script. Bhansali saab [Sanjay Leela Bhansali, producer] approached me to write the sequel. I should be able to complete the script soon.”

A source told the publication, “Sonakshi Sinha will reprise her role of Paro. While the principal characters of Shiva and Paro are expected to remain in the sequel, the story will not pick up where Rowdy Rathore ended. This will be a completely new narrative. The script will be ready in the next few months, and the movie is expected to go on floors in the end of 2022.”
