After Salman, Prabhu Deva to resurrect Akshay's career?

Rachana, Glamsham Editorial

When Bollywood star Salman Khan was going through a rough patch holding a series of flops like HEROES, YUVRAAJ, GOD TUSSI GREAT HO, etc it was actor-turned-filmmaker Prabhu Deva who gave a new lease of life to Salman's career by giving him a film like WANTED.

With WANTED Salman Khan, who was mostly seen doing supportive roles in PARTNER, NO ENTRY, SAAWARIYA, HELLO, not only regained his lost glory but also reinstated the solo-hero concept in Bollywood. Salman carried the hangover of WANTED in his other films like DABANGG, READY, BODYGUARD as well and emerged as the newest Box-office king.

Now, it seems, yet another star from Bollywood is going Salman way to recuperate his position in the industry. Well, we are talking about actor Akshay Kumar, who has bonded with filmmaker Prabhu Deva for his next film ROWDY RATHORE.

If you look at the first trailer of ROWDY RATHORE, which was launched recently, Akshay's antics and dialoguebaazi quite reminds us of Salman from WANTED. Akshay, who returns to action after 6-7 years, plays a cop with a moustache in ROWDY RATHORE like Salman played in DABANGG.

After a string of flops it looks like Akshay is all set to strike back. Now it is to be seen whether Prabhu Deva does some magic and brings Akshay out of his lull period like he did for superstar Salman Khan.

Do you think Prabhu's ROWDY RATHORE will resurrect Akshay's career? Let us know.
