Will ‘Phata Poster Nikhla Hero’ Change The Stars of Shahid Kapur?


Shahid Kapur entered Bollywood with a bang. His first film ‘Ishq Vishk’ released in the year 2003 and he was a sensation among the young crowd. The tinsel town hailed him as the next big thing to hit the Hindi silver screen. Shahid kept on his momentum with one after another hit in the form of ‘Vivah’,’ Jab We Met’, ‘Kaminey’ etc. He was praised for his acting style by the critics and the movie goers alike. Even his acting style was compared with that of the iconic King Khan of Bollywood, Shahrukh Khan.

However, Shahid Kapur at the present is not a much heard about name in tinsel town. His non performance at the box office has made him fade away from the public memory. The duds at the box office, such as ‘Milenge Milenge’, ‘Mausam’ and ‘Teri Meri Kahaani’ seem to have put a brake on his career graph.

Now after a long break, his new movie ‘Phata Poster Nikhla Hero’ is all set to release. The action comedy is supposed to put his career on the right track. Rajkumar Santoshi is the director of the flick and speaking about Shahid, he stated, "Unfortunately, his previous films may not have worked, but he is a wonderful actor and he is very hard working. He has done a good job in the film. I think this will be Shahid's huge break. He will be successful with this film."

Santoshi Farther added, "Initially we finalised Shahid for the film. I have never worked with him before, but I have really appreciated his work. I thought this is one film which he has not done before. It is full of comedy."

The beautiful Ileana D'Cruz who acted in the film ‘Barfi’ is the leading lady of Shahid Kapur in the film ‘Phata Poster Nikhla Hero’. Speaking about the selection of her in the film, Santoshi said, “As far as Ileana is concerned, that time Barfi! had also realeased and I really liked her work in the film. I thought it will be a fresh casting."

The movie releases all across India on 20th September 2013. We certainly hope that the film delivers the much needed hit for Shahid Kapur. He is a good actor whom we wish to see around in the tinsel town for a long long time to come.
