Apart from the intrinsic earthy merits of the film and Prabhu Dheva's outstanding direction and the water tight script, it is the sparkling chemistry between Akshay-Sonakshi, in just their first film, which is the talk of the town.
When we put up the same question to actor Pitobash, who has worked with the duo in Sirish Kunder's upcoming, JOKER 3D, he made some interesting observations.
Says Pitobash, ''Please stand corrected because ROWDY RATHORE is Akshay-Sonakshi's second film, and though it has released earlier, it was the shooting of JOKER which took place much before ROWDY RATHORE. Let me tell you that I am not surprised. The tuning or chemistry (or whatever you may term it), between Akshay and Sonakshi was evident to me during the shooting of JOKER itself. I was sure that it would go a step ahead in their next film, ROWDY RATHORE.''
Well, we are sure that Pitobash has many secrets to tell us, not only about JOKER but also about his upcoming SHANGHAI. But more about that later!
