Like most of his contemporaries, Shahid Kapoor too has decided to join the bandwagon of action heroes, cashing in on the hit formula of popular masala actioners. For the movie Rambo Rajkumar, Shahid is teaming up with the beautiful Sonakshi Sinha. The film will be directed by Prabhu Deva.
Earlier, the title of this Shahid Kapoor-Sonakshi Sinha starrer was reported to be Namak, but since the movie requires a catchy, mass-oriented name, Rambo Rajkumar has been finalized. “Since the film is high on masala, the makers wanted a catchy and over-the-top title. Rambo Rajkumar fits the bill perfectly,” a source confirms to a daily.
It’s even said that the storyline of the film is quite close to Sasha’s character in Vishal Bhardwaj’s Kaminey (2009). The movie is going on floors from March 1, and the crew including Sonakshi Sinha is headed to Bhuj in Gujarat for filming.
The makers are, in fact, even contemplating to get Shahid Kapoor to meet the real Rambo, Sylvester Stallone. The Hollywood action hero has even done a cameo in Akshay Kumar’s movie Kambakkht Ishq (2009).
The entire crew of Rambo Rajkumar was snapped together before leaving for Bhuj. Spotted here are Shahid Kapoor, Sonakshi Sinha, Prabhu Deva with Krishika Lulla and producer Viki Rajani. Have a look at these stills.
