Dheva directed movie would bring back to life his career alike in the case of
Salman Khan in Wanted and Akshay Kumar in Rowdy Rathore, Sahid Kapoor said,
"First of all, I don't think the stars that you have named need any resurrection.
Both of them are huge superstars and have been around for close to twenty
years. Yes, their films with Prabhu sir have done extremely well and he is a
phenomenal film-maker. For me, the priority is to know whether my work has met
the expectations that he had from me. Whether the film does well or not is not
in my control. But, I am very happy with whatever I have seen and it has been a
privilege to work with him. I think he is the Mawaali and Masala king."
R...Rajkumar is produced by Eros International and Next Gen Films.
