Producer Ramesh Taurani and director Rajkumar Santoshi's previous venture, 'Ajab Prem Ki Ghazab Kahani' starring Ranbir Kapoor and Katrina Kaif, created box office magic 4 years ago. The pair now look to carry forward their successful association with the latest madcap comedy 'Phata Poster Nikla Hero', starring Shahid Kapoor and Ileana D'cruz.
With dreams of being a movie hero, Shahid Kapoor essays the role of Vishwas who begins his journey to stardom, only to meet with a girl, who turns everything around, leading to complications, out-and-out entertaining episodes and lots of madness, 'Phata Poster Nikla Hero' is every bit the crazy film all told in signature Rajkumar Santoshi style.
Said the director, "Phata Poster Nikla Hero is a wholesome family entertainer with something for everyone. After Ajab I was looking to do a film that my audiences are keen on watching, something that will have them rolling of their seats with laughter as that is the kind of cinema I personally enjoy."
Talking about his association with Rajkumar Santoshi, producer Ramesh Taurani said, "Very few directors have the knack of executing slapstick and over-the-top comedies, however,Rajkumar Santoshiji is gifted in that genre. Phata Poster Nikla Hero is a film that will appeal universally and we've thoroughly enjoyed doing this film with Mr.Santoshi and hope to repeat the magic."
Hmmm, will Shahid be able to surpass audience's expectations? Will he be successful in beating the hit score made earlier by Ranbir Kapoor? Only the film's release will tell.. Let's wait and watch...
'Phata Poster Nikla Hero' is scheduled to release 20th September 2013.
