Quiet Rowdy Rathore success bash for Akshay Kumar and team

A fortnight after the film was released, the super-busy cast and crew of Rowdy Rathore finally found some time to toast their film's blockbuster success.

The posh Taj Lands End in Mumbai's Bandstand area was abuzz with activity on Friday evening. One of the biggest hits of this year so far was about to be celebrated, and excitement all around was palpable.

Surprisingly, the Rowdy Rathore success party was quite a private affair. "The media and onlookers alike were expecting lots of A-list celebrities. However, the film's unit chose to keep celebrations restricted to themselves," an eyewitness said. For a filmy party, the bash started early. The first lot of guests started pouring in by 9.45 pm and Akshay Kumar, the film's hero and Bollywood's star of the hour, was in soon enough.

Akshay seemed in party mood in semi-formal shiny black. Heroine Sonakshi Sinha preferred arriving all alone - minus daddy Shatrughan Sinha and mom Poonam, who are mostly seen accompanying the actress at most dos. Dressed in a beige short number embellished with black designer prints, she cut a cute picture for the shutterbugs.

Director Prabhu Deva was all smiles, having recorded his second blockbuster as a director after 2009's Wanted. "I am happy that both the films I have made so far have earned over Rs.100 crore, but at the same time it makes me nervous. Expectations from my films will now increase," he told the press.

Rowdy Rathore also marks a second consecutive hit for Sonakshi, who made her debut with the 2010 blockbuster, Dabangg. "I hope all my films keep doing as well as my first two," she said. Producer Sanjay Leela Bhansali, and co-producers Sabina Khan and UTV's Siddharth Roy Kapoor were among the other guests, besides a smattering of the film's supporting cast.

Rowdy Rathore has earned Rs.109.5 crore since its release two weeks ago in the domestic market alone. The trade expects the film to cross the 150-crore mark in the coming weeks.
