Will Phata Poster Nikla Hero Will Be A Successful Movie
After Ajab Prem Ki Ghazab Kahani producer Ramesh Taurani and director Rajkumar Santoshi have reunited for Shahid Kapoor’s next Phata Poster Nikhla Hero. Their last film, starring Ranbir Kapoor and Katrina Kaif was a big hit at the box-office, and the expectations are really high with Shahid and Ileana D’Cruz-starrer as well.
There is a pattern hidden in these names. They have either been derived out of some famous dialogues or they have just been the sequels. ‘Zanjeer’ is the remake of Prakash Mehra’s pathbreaking cop story of 1973 while ‘Grand Masti’ is the sequel to Indra Kumar’s ‘Masti’ (2004).
In the comic caper, Shahid would be seen as a simple guy named Vishwas, who dreams to become a movie hero someday. However, just when he starts his journey to filmdom, he meets a girl who turns everything upside down, leading to complications.
Santoshi says, “I wanted to do a film that would have my audience rolling off their seats with laughter, as that is the kind of cinema I personally enjoy. Phata Poster Nikhla Hero is a wholesome family entertainer with something for everyone.”
Talking about his association with Santoshi, Taurani says, “Very few directors have the knack of executing slapstick and over-the-top comedies. However, Raj is gifted in that genre. We’ve thoroughly enjoyed doing this film and we hope to repeat the magic of our earlier film outing.”
