This weekend, are you ready get high on some action and comedy from Bollywood's chocolate boy Shahid Kapoor? After quite a few failed movies at the Box-Office, we have Shahid returning to the big screen with Phata Poster Nikhla Hero (PPNH) which is directed by Rajkumar Santoshi. The movie which also stars Ileana D'Cruz will hit the theatres on Friday, September 20.
Phata Poster Nikhla Hero reunites Rajkumar Santoshi and Ramesh Taurani after four years. The duo had created magic in Ajab Prem Ki Ghazab Kahani and it was a Box-Office hit. This may be a break for Shahid as he has worked very hard for this movie. Also we are going to see the 32-year-old in a new avatar. The director has high hopes for this forthcoming movie as he feels the actors have done a great job.
The makers are focusing on the fact that this is a complete masala entertainer. The producer calls this "an old school comedy". We hear that Phata Poster Nikhla Hero has all the ingredients of an out-and-out commercial venture meant for a family audience. The movie's plot revolves around the story of a guy who is an aspiring actor but is mistaken as a super cop.
We see that family entertainers seem to be working well with all sorts of audiences. So the makers seem pretty confident about what the audiences want. The director promises us that his venture will have the audiences rolling off their seats with laughter.
Have a look ate the slide show for the detailed preview and photos of PPNH.
The literal meaning of the movie's title is 'Poster Rips Open And Out Comes Hero'. And we also see that some of the posters of the film do have Shahid coming out of a poster as he rips it apart.
In Phata Poster Nikhla Hero, Shahid plays the role of Vishwas Rao, an aspiring actor. He is high on action and comedy in this movie. As he acts as a fake cop, he also finds him tough situations because he can't afford any scars as he wants to be an actor.
Ileana plays the role of a Kajol, a social worker. She is often referred to as 'complaint Kajol' because she often visits the police station to lodge complains about many corrupt politicians.
Shahid Kapoor had to do quite a few bike sequences in the movie. During one of the shoots, he actually had a small accident with the bike but the actor was quick enough to stop it from injuring himself. This image gives a glimpse of a jolly ride in which Shahid takes Ileana.
On the day they were shooting in a construction site, we hear that Shahid had a very tough day. The temperature was 45 degrees and he had to sport the heavy construction workers' costume.
The soundtrack for the film was composed by Pritam Chakraborty and this did get good reception as it was refreshing. Other songs like 'Hey Mr. DJ', 'Dhating Naach' and 'Tu Mere Agal Bagal Ha' have been doing well with audiences.
Ileana On Her Role
Ileana says that it was challenging playing the role in PPNH. She liked it because she is quite goofy in real life too. "I have always found Rajkumar Santoshi's humour to be very different. This film has his trademark style, making it worth a watch. And with the number of expressions that I have made, my face has become elastic just like a rubber band!," said Ileana.
Nargis Fakhri Item Number
This is the first item number that actress Nargis Fakhri is part of. She sizzles in a black outfit for the song 'Dhating Naach'. This is a good a dance number and we even have Shahid giving us some good moves in this song.
