    The tabloid quoted the source as saying, "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."

    Speaking about Akshay Kumar, the superstar has a jam-packed line up which includes films like Atrangi Re, Bachchan Pandey, Prithviraj, Ram Setu, OMG 2, Raksha Bandhan, Gorkha and the Hindi remake of pyschological thriller Ratsasan.
