Mumbai: Filmmaker Sanjay Leela Bhansali and actor Akshay Kumar have come together for the first time for a film titled `Rowdy Rathore`.

It will be an `action` film to be produced by Bhansali and co-produced by designer Shabinaa Khan.

According to Bhansali, action genre for him is a totally alien concept. "At this juncture as a filmmaker, I want to move out of the comfort zone and do things that are new and untried," the `Guzaarish` director said.

Starring Kumar and Sonakshi Sinha, the film is being directed by Prabhu Deva of `Wanted` fame.

Bhansali (48) said his latest project will break the stereotypical boundaries of the action genre.

The film will see Kumar get back into the action space. The `Khiladi` star will undergo rigorous physical training in preparation for the film that will have top notch action and choreography, he added.
