We know that superstar Khans - Shahrukh Khan, Salman Khan and Aamir Khan have a crazy fan following in the country. Well, it's not just you who is a fan of such stars. We have our Bollywood actor Shahid Kapoor who has just revealed to us that he is a fan of Salman Khan in real life. What's more interesting is that his former girlfriend Kareena Kapoor and her husband Saif Ali Khan too are fans of Sallu.
In the past, we had Kareena who told us that she and her hubby are fans of Salman. So here we find that the trio have something in common. Shahid spoke about Salman when he was promoting his upcoming movie Phata Poster Nikhla Hero(PPNH), where he will play a desperate fan of Salman.
The 32-year-old said that it was good opportunity to play Sallu's fan as the timing seems right. "Our generation is a huge fan of all three Khans. we all have seen their films. I have seen a lot of hysterical fans and this time it was exciting that I got chance to play a fan. I have played a hyper and desperate fan."
Shahid also revealed a little about his role in the movie. "It is out an out a masala entertaining character, which I haven't played earlier. I haven't said massy one liners, tapori songs etc. This zone is different for me. The most challenging part was to adapt to this genre," he said.
Phata Poster Nikhla Hero will also have Salman Khan's appearance in a cameo role. The film directed by Rajkumar Santoshi will hit the theatres on Friday, September 20. Do come back for more updates on the movie.
