Shahid Kapoor and Prabhu Deva’s next film Namak renamed Rambo Rajkumar
Following up on popular filmi titles, Shahid Kapoor and Prabhu Deva go for a name change for their upcoming film
Bollywood is known to suffer from a very strong herd mentality, where if one film becomes a hit, 10 others follow suit with a similar storyline, music, title etc. And it seems that Shahid Kapoor and Prabhu Deva are following one such trend.
Since Prabhu Deva’s Rowdy Rathore became a runaway hit, the director has gone ahead and changed the name of his upcoming film with Shahid Kapoor to a similar sounding title. The action film that was earlier being made under the working title Namak is now called Rambo Rajkumar. For the Shahid Kapoor and Sonakshi Sinha starrer which will be an out and out masala entertainer, the makers apparently wanted a flashy title, and Namak they felt wasn’t spicy enough!
Well, we hope for Shahid’s sake that Rowdy Rathore’s luck could rub off on Rambo Rajkumar as well, since the Kaminey star badly needs some luck his way! And as for Prabhu Deva, wethinks he will do alright considering his last two outings Wanted and Rowdy Rathore were smash hits, and he has his lucky mascot Sonakshi on board.
