Film: R… Rajkumar

Cast: Shahid Kapoor, Sonakshi Sinha, Sonu Sood

Director: Prabhu Deva

Reportedly, it is for the first time that Prabhu Deva's upcoming film, R…Rajkumar, is an original and not a remake.

Story line:

R… Rajkumar is the story of a small-time goon, trapped in a crime.  Rajkumar (Shahid Kapoor) is an aimless goon who works for drug baron named Shivraj (Sonu Sood). While Rajkumar is rugged, passionate and rebellious, he is blessed with a chiseled body and devilish charm. Rajkumar’s life and ambition go haywire when he comes across beautiful Chanda (Sonakshi Sinha). He leaves no stone unturned to woo Chanda, an educated smart girl who lives her life on her own terms. While Rajkumar is raw yet hot, Chanda is gorgeous, strong headed. But in order to make his love flourish, he needs to fight drug dealer Shivraj and other mafias who work with him.

Director's Cut:

Prabhu Deva whose last directorial venture Ramaiya Vastavaiya, went unnoticed on box–office, is hopeful of R…Rajkumar’s success. Like Rowdy Rathod and Wanted, Prabhu Deva’s latest venture R…Rajkumar is also an action packed typical masala movie. The choreographer-director has worked with Shahid Kapoor for the first time and he says he wants to work with Shahid Kapoor again after 'R... Rajkumar'.

"It was a great experience... amazing to work with Shahid Kapoor. He is energetic and a good actor. I would like to work with him again whenever he is free," Prabhu Deva said.

It is for the first time that Prabhu Deva's upcoming film is an original and not a remake. "We hope it does well. Hope it is a hit because first time I am doing an original film. I have given my 200 percent. Have worked hard on it," he said.

Talking about the lead pair of the film, Prabhu Deva said that he needed a fresh pair for the film when he visualized Shahid and Sonakshi together and found them good as a couple.

Stars speak:

"It's all about timing - when time is good, it will work. You can't think about all these things as you have to learn to accept a few things. I genuinely feel I just need some luck... rest of everything is fine," Shaid Kapoor said.

Prabhudheva has directed some of the best action scenes with Shahid in the film.

Praising the director’s action treatment, Shahid said, "His sense of action is amazing. His action treatment is also musical. There is a lot of stylization. He takes care of small moments.”

Ready to come out on December 6, "R...Rajkumar" will see Shahid working with Sonakshi Sinha for the first time and he compliments his leading lady as a "complete heroine".

Shahid Kapoor, known for his dancing skills, said his co-star Sonakshi Sinha picked up the dance moves faster than him.

"The first thing I noticed in her is that she picks up the steps fast and this has never happened to me as heroines opposite me usually take time to pick up steps. But she did. She is a good dancer. She remembered all the steps. She has all qualities that you need in a heroine," Shahid added.

Sonakshi will be seen in this movie in a completely rowdy avatar. "I thoroughly enjoyed playing a rowdy in the film. I am quite thrilled about the film. I have not done anything like this before," said Sonakshi who previously worked with Prabhu Deva in 'Rowdy Rathore’.
Sonakshi who believes that R....Rajkumar would turn out as a hit wants to gift the film as a birthday present to her father Shatrughan Sinha..

"Each year some films release. I hope I give him a huge and big 'dhamakedaar' present this year in the form of 'R... Rajkumar'," Sonakshi said.

The action and the dance sequences are quite significant. Shahid as the new action hero looks desirable, handsome and promising. The makers are trying to keep the complete name of Shahid’s character under wraps till the film’s release.

The music of R..Rajlumar is foot tapping and energetic. Gandi Baat is likely to emerge as its biggest hit. Reportedly, the song saree ke fall sa song video has already crossed 2 million hits on You Tube within a short span of time.

R....Rajkumar has a lot of striking visuals, high-voltage action scenes and electrifying chemistry between Sonakshi and Shahid. While this ‘masala’ Bollywood movie is simple love story about ‘Pyaar Pyaar  Pyaar and Maar Maar Maar’ it has all the elements to be a smashing hit of this year.
