One look at the stills from Prabhu Deva’s upcoming Shahid Kapoor starrer R…Rajkumar is enough for the viewer to conclude that it is an action packed angry young man flick. Of later, the angry young man trend is picking up in Bollywood, with Salman Khan’s Wanted, Dabangg; Ajay Devgn’s Singham and our Khiladi’s Rowdy Rathore and now, Shahid Kapoor is all set to join the bandwagon with R…Rajkumar.
“This is something which is making R…Rajkumar really fresh,” says Viki Rajani, the film’s producer. “I had confidence on the script and also trusted the director. I knew how Prabhudheva would present the movie. I was convinced that he had the potential to carry off something like this. Of course with Shahid in there, it adds further edge to R…Rajkumar. Reason being that it is the first big scale action movie with a young hero. In fact this is the USP of the film too.”
The film, which releases on 6th December, will see Shahid doing a lot of gravity defying stunts and bashing up much bigger baddies and also, the eye-candy in the movie is Sonakshi Sinha, whose chemistry with Shahid is very interesting. “The chemistry between Shahid and Sonakshi is amazing. Considering all these facts, it worked in our favour,” says Viki, “We had a decent budget to make the movie and the entire package works once you start believing your director, actors and the script.”
