"No one is making any pretence of the fact that Rambo Rajkumar belongs to the same genre that has resulted in quite a few South remakes turning out to be successful, right from Wanted to Rowdy Rathore. Incidentally both were directed by Prabhu Dheva and life is coming back full circle for the director. Shahid is clear that he wants to go totally in the direction that Prabhu has set for him", informs a source.
"Today if you go and see mainstream action masala movies, you see senior actors like Salman (Wanted, Bodyguard), Akshay (Rowdy Rathore) or Ajay (Singham) in there. You don't see someone who is a little fresh and younger featuring in such genre", says Viki Rajani, who is producing the film along with Sunil Lulla, "This was one factor that really excited me as it would be something new for me as well as audience."
He isn't willing to term the movie as the one that belongs to 'South style'. "I would rather say that the film is more of 'Prabhu Dheva style'", says Viki.
Well, we say, it is one and the same thing. However, to see Shahid in a kicking, punching and jumping avtar, should make for a new sight indeed.
A co-production of Eros and Next Gen Films Productions, Rambo Rajkumar is slated for November 15, release.
