Mumbai: Akshay Kumar starrer ‘Rowdy Rathore’ has garnered over Rs.100 crore at the box office, sparking a buzz that plans of a sequel may soon be under way. And the films`s co-producer, UTV Motion Pictures` CEO Siddharth Roy Kapoor doesn`t rule out the possiblity either.

"You know, there are a lot of interesting thoughts about what we should be doing - sequel, prequel, etc. But I think it`s important for Sanjay (Bhansali), Prabhu Deva and us to really sit down and discuss on what we do and obviously along with Akshay take a call on what`s next," the 37-year-old said here Friday night at the success bash of the film.

Asked to react on filmmaker Vidhu Vinod Chopra`s recent comment about rubbish films making Rs.100 crore, Kapoor said: "I really don`t have any comment."

However, the film`s lead actor Akshay Kumar had something to say to it.

"I feel that whatever he wanted to say, he said. But I have watched `Ferrari Ki Sawaari` and I liked that," he said.

‘Rowdy Rathore’ co-producer Sanjay Leela Bhansali was also nonchalant.

"He (Chopra) is my mentor. If he said something, I am happy," he said.

Directed by Prabhu Deva, ‘Rowdy Rathore’, a remake of the 2006 Telugu hit ‘Vikramarkudu’ starring Ravi Teja. It marked Akshay`s comeback to action after seven years.
