It is going to be a very big weekend indeed for Shahid Kapoor. The man really needs some luck going for him, and how. Of course choice of his films notwithstanding, the fact remains that as one of the most talented young actors around, it has been ages since he delivered a true-blue hit. R… Rajkumar couldn’t have arrived at the right time because this is one film that could well decide the course his career would take from this point on. Not that he has a dearth of offers but in an industry where a hit counts the most, this Prabhudheva directed film is the one that comes with a golden opportunity for Shahid.

On their part, producers Sunil Lulla of Eros (whose Ramleela has already entered the 100 crore club) and Viki Rajani have done to promote and market the film to the fullest. The story of  pyaar pyaar pyaar and maar maar maar has been in news for all the right reasons for around three months now and there hasn’t been any negative buzz so far. Yes, masala films of late have not really caught the fancy of the audience. However, considering the fact that Prabhudheva has proved his mettle time and again when it comes to this genre, there are good hopes that R… Rajkumar would bring a good masaledaar ending to 2013.

All of this means that considering the huge release that the film is getting, even a 50% start at an average on the opening day would help R… Rajkumar boast of some good numbers. Anything in the vicinity of 10 crores on the opening day would give a good enough boost to the film for making merry over the weekend. By all means, the film should see the highest opening weekend that a Shahid starrer has seen. As for Sonakshi, she could well do with a hit marking an end to the year. With two chartbusters songs (Gandi Baat, Saree Ke Fall Sa) to boast of, R… Rajkumar should find an immediate acceptance in single screens.

  1. Wishing all the best for Shahid and Prabu at the same time the question is whyyyyyyy sonakshi???? no figure no beauty. may be the good luck of Raudy rathod will help the combo of prabu/sonakshi.
    there is the good chance at the box office as it have a full fledge week with bullet raja becoming a no show.
    second week some competition in the form of ‘jackpot’ where the promos arouse a lot of curiosity with nasir n sachin 2 ace actors with a bombshell..
    20cr opening day is possible and a weekend of 50cr looks easy. if that happen than 100cr is not a fairy tale.
    all the best
