'Phata Poster Nikhla Hero' revolves around Vishwas Rao, an aspiring actor mistaken for a super cop.
Directed by Rajkumar Santoshi, the film stars Shahid Kapoor, Ileana D'Cruz, Padmini Kolhapure and Darshan Jariwala.
While Nargis Fakhri, who was last seen in 'Madras Cafe', turns item girl for the film, superstar Salman Khan will be seen in a special appearance in 'Phata Poster Nikhla Hero'.
Talk about his role in 'Phata Poster Nikhla Hero', Shahid Kapoor in an interview with PTI, said, "It is the first time I am doing a comic character of this kind and it is a very new genre for me. I have never really done a masala action comedy in my career or played a character which makes the hero like entry and delivers very filmy dialogues. So I was very keen to know how it will feel."
The actor is all praise for director Rajkumar Santoshi, who he thinks has brought out the best of his comic side in the film.
"When I heard the script, I found it extremely entertaining. Rajji acted out every character from the film during the narration. I knew that I am with a director who is very clear about what he wants from me as an actor. He said this is the character to entertain the audience, so that they enjoy themselves with all the buffoonery that he does," Shahid added.
