What do we know about Rowdy Rathore?

Made with a budget of approximately ₹40 crore, Rowdy Rathore was a remake of the Telugu film Vikramarkudu. It was co-produced by Sanjay Leela Bhansali and Ronnie Screwvala. The film released on June 1, 2012, on 2,300 screens in India and around 400 screens overseas.

It revolves around Shiva (Akshay), who is a small-time conman. He is head-over-heels in love with Priya (Sonakshi Sinha), a pretty girl whom he met at a wedding he wasn't invited to. The picture-perfect world of Shiva turns upside down with the entry of six-year-old girl Neha, who believes he is her father.




Shiva also becomes the victim of a series of life-threatening attacks by a gang of deadly criminals, who seem to know something he doesn't. In the quest to save his life and love, Shiva stumbles upon a deadly secret, something which takes him to a small town in Bihar. That town is ruled by a ruthless MLA and the mafia he controls. The inhabitants of the small town find a saviour in Shiva.
