Ask the actor why he decided to take on a film ,that will see him in his over-the-top best in signature Rajkumar Santoshi style ,he adds, “When I started doing live shows a few years ago, people liked my spontaneity on stage. Friends started to say that they haven’t seen this side of me and I should try it on the big screen if I enjoy it so much. That’s how Phata Poster Nikhla Hero happened”.
Starring Shahid Kapoor and Ileana D’Cruz , Ramesh Taurani’s Phata Poster Nikhla Hero directed by Rajkumar Santoshi is scheduled to release 20th September 2013.
