R Rajkumar part 2

Shahis is too old for this role. THey should've taken Aditya RK

RK is only a year younger to shahid :P and looks older. get over your hatred!

wow... i am excited to see what Shhaid is going to bring this role :D

They should cast Aditya Roy Kapoor. This type of Character suits him. He nailed Rahul Jaykar as well. Also he sure has the dates. Makers should consider him

I would love to see him in more movies too but unfortunately his only hit as main lead till date is Aashiqui 2. People are sure scared to invest on him. Talent is there though. What a waste.

Shahid is anytime a better actor than Arjun or you know what? Any actor is better than Arjun actually.
