Raw and rugged!
Meet the angry young hero of Prabhu Deva’s Rambo Rajkumar…err it’s R… Rajkumar now. The title has been changed because the original Rambo series, starring the mighty Sylvester Stallone, has copyrighted the word ‘Rambo’.
Seeing Shahid Kapoor going dhishum dhishum in R… Rajkumar, the actor seems to be turning things around for him, and is trying to be more massy.
The last few years haven’t been good for Shahid Kapoor. After the superhit Kaminey (2008), not much worked for the actor, who gave his two years to dad’s film Mausam (2011), but the movie was a damp squib at the box office. Later, his Teri Meri Kahaani (2012) with Priyanka Chopra, too, came a cropper. His latest release Phata Poster Nikhla Hero may have had a decent opening at the BO, but the movie is far from being a hit.
With R… Rajkumar, the actor might strike gold. First, the movie is directed by Prabhu Deva, who has given hits like Wanted and Rowdy Rathore, and secondly the movie has the golden girl Sonakshi Sinha opposite Shahid. Most of Sonakshi’s movies have been superhits.
Also, the fans of Shahid Kapoor want to see him in a full-fledged action role after Kaminey, and R… Rajkumar might quench their thirst.
The co-producer of the film Viki Rajani has tweeted the angry look of Shahid, and written, “RISING IN A NEW AWTAAR!”
