Armed with a super duper hit like HOUSEFULL 2, which is Akshay Kumar's first film to enter the coveted 100 crore club, the khiladi looks set to score back to back centuries with his upcoming Prabhu Deva directed ROWDY RATHORE.
The hype for the masala action film is huge with its music, dialogues and promos being loved by the public. And seeing this the trade is very hopeful that ROWDY RATHORE will indeed take a flying start at the ticket window and the film is being touted as Akshay Kumar's next entry into the 100 crore club after HOUSEFULL 2.
If things go as predicted then Akshay Kumar will be the third actor after the two Khans, Salman and Shahrukh, to have scored two centuries within a time span of just about two months or so.
Just to recall, Salman Khan was the first actor to score back to back hundreds within two months with READY (3rd June 2011) and BODYGUARD (30th August 2011). His heroics at the ticket window were followed by Shahrukh Khan who too hit a couple of centuries with RA.ONE (26th October 2011) and DON 2 (23rd December 2011) within a span of just two months or so.
Fans of Aamir Khan will surely say that even Aamir Khan has scored back to back centuries with GHAJINI and 3 IDIOTS, but the time gap was almost one year. Here we are talking about striking it rich at the box-office within a couple of months.
Well, all we can do is wait for 1st June to see whether Akki will prove us right and score another hundred and shut up his detractors who have been saying that HOUSEFULL 2 was a multi-starrer and so Akshay cannot take the whole credit for it.
