Rajkumar now works for Shivraj. But his life changes forever when he claps eyes on the beautiful, educated Chanda (Sonakshi Sinha). What he does not know is, that Chanda is an orphan who is being raised by Manik Parmar. After some persistent wooing, Chanda falls for Rajkumar's charms. Just when their love was about to flourish, Shivraj and Parmar compromise and Parmar decides to get Chanda married to Shivraj, against Chanda's wish. Angered Rajkumar beats Shivraj's men and challenges him, saying that he will marry Chanda in front of Shivraj. Furious, Shivraj plans to get Rajkumar killed in an encounter by his pet police officer. But in return, gets a shocking surprise when it is revealed that Rajkumar actually works for Don Ajit Takka and was sent to Dhartipur only to take over the drug cartel to which both Shivraj and Parmar owe allegiance. Rajkumar captures Shivraj's truck full of drugs and drives it to Takka, revealing he himself was a big gangster all along. After giving Shivraj's stolen truck to Takka, he discovers that the truck was empty. In a twist of events, it turns out that Shivraj and Takka had joined hands, and purposely made Rajkumar steal the empty truck. Shivraj and Takka brutally kill Rajkumar and bury him. Shivraj starts his wedding celebrations with Chanda, only to be interrupted by the still alive Rajkumar, who is shown to have been rescued by one of Shivraj's henchmen after he was buried. Shivraj's men back off, because they are now friends with Rajkumar, hence leading to a one on one fight between the two. Finally, Rajkumar injures Shivraj with a power punch to the neck and later kills Don Takka with a ceramic tile. The film ends with all the men beating Parmar, while a severely injured Rajkumar and Chanda walk away hand in hand happily.

This is Sonakshi's 4th film with Prabhu Dheva. They plan to work together again in the film that Prabhu Dheva will direct with Salman Khan in the lead.

Prabhu Dheva had never worked with music composer Pritam Chakraborty before, but after this movie, the filmmaker was kicked about the opportunity that he decided to work with Pritam again, as soon as possible.

As per the norm Prabhu Dheva appears in one song alongside Shahid.

Srihari, the seasoned Telugu actor who plays a powerful role, passed away before R... Rajkumar could be completed. His role has been left intact.

Prabhu Dheva prefers multiple item girls in one item song. So, the item song 'Kaddu Katega' features the top Kannada actress Ragini Dwidei along with firangi femme fatale Scarlett Wilson.

In the film, Shahid coins a new term of endearment 'Thappi'. A combination of a thappad (slap) and a pappi (kiss).

The film's original title Rambo Rajkumar was a tribute to the South Indian stunt director of the same name who died young on duty. However, the makers of the Rambo franchise claimed copyright prerogative, leaving Prabhu Dheva with no choice but to use asterisks in place of the hero's first name.

Neither Shahid nor Sonakshi Sinha had very successful runs for their films. Shahid's last hit was Badmaash Company in 2008, and Sonakshi's 4 films this year have all under-performed at the box office. The real star of the film is Prabhu Dheva whose uninterrupted success innings is expected to take the film across to the finish line.

The film is about a drug runner in Gujarat. Sonu Sood who plays the villain has almost as much footage as Shahid Kapoor.

This is director Prabhu Dheva's first original Hindi film. Wanted, Rowdy Rathore and Ramaiya Vastvaiya were all remakes.
