Illeana to romance Shahid in Santoshi’s next

After debuting opposite Ranbir Kapoor in Anurag Basu’s ‘Barfi!’, south sensation Illeana D’ruz is all set to take the silver screen with storm with her elegance in Ramesh Taurani’s produced and Rajkumar directed movie, ‘Phata Poster Nikla Hero’. In the film, she will be paired opposite Shahid Kapoor.

Excited with the turn of events, producer Taurani says, "Shahid is our ghar ka hero; a fabulous dancer and a huge star. Raj has worked with us on Ajab Prem Ki Ghazab Kahani. However, what is most interesting is the fact that we have signed up Ileana opposite Shahid. It's a fresh pair."

Shahid Kapoor who is out the scene for quite sometime is bust reading scripts for the last few months as he is determined to shoot films back to back.

Besides Prabhudheva's ‘Namak’ opposite Sonakshi Sinha, he has also signed Maneesh Sharma's film of ‘Band Baaja Baraat’ fame.
