Vijay to shake a leg in "Rowdy Rathore" number
Tamil star Vijay is all set to shake a leg with Akshay Kumar in boisterous number 'Chinta Ta' in the film "Rowdy Rathore".
Vijay, 38, who is currently shooting for A R Murugadoss's "Thuppakki" here, was roped in by director Prabhudeva for breaking into a friendly jig with the "Khiladi" star for the song.
Prabhudeva, who persuaded the actor to do a cameo in action-packed "Rowdy Rathore", had directed him in 2007 Tamil blockbuster "Pokkiri". "I have always been a fan of Akshay Kumar since his 'Khiladi' days.
Prabhudeva just asked me once and I readily agreed to do it. They were very friendly and I won't ever forget the experience shooting for the song. Also, the promos of 'Rowdy Rathore' are very interesting," Vijay said in a statement.
Breaking into a jig alongside Akshay will be his maiden Bollywood exposure. Vijay is one of the most sought-after actors in Tamil film industry.
Directed by Prabhudeva and produced by Sanjay Leela Bhansali "Rowdy Rathore" casts Akshay and Sonakshi Sinha in the lead, and is slated for June 1 release. PTI
