By Abid, Glamsham EditorialKing of masala Prabhu Dheva's magic has worked once again! As per the latest inputs from trade sources, his latest venture, R...RAJKUMAR, has already crossed 50 crore and is estimated to have netted around 52-53 crores (to be validated) at the end of the second weekend. The film is all set to be a semi-hit hit and has given lead actor Shahid Kapoor's career a new lease of life.
Prior to the release of R...RAJKUMAR, lots of doubts were cast over both lead actor Shahid Kapoor and actress Sonakshi Sinha, who were going through a very bad phase (especially Shahid) in their respective careers.
Shahid's last clear success was KAMINEY (2009) followed by BADMASH COMPANY (an above average) way back in 2010. Post BADMASH COMPANY all his films had flopped miserably at the ticket window barring to an extent PHATA POSTER NIKHLA HERO. Therefore it was of utmost importance for R...RAJKUMAR to score at the box-office and bail out Shahid Kapoor, which indeed it seems to have done.
Moreover as far as Shahid is concerned, he does deserve praise for going against his chocolate-boy romantic image and carrying on his shoulders an all-out masala action film.
