Rajkumar Santoshi delivered a big hit in 2009 with Ajab Prem Ki Ghazab Kahani, a madcap entertainer which in a way reminded us of his only other non-serious film, Andaz Apna Apna (remember the climax?). After a gap of 4 years he is finally back with his next film- Phata Poster Nikhla Hero which has Shahid Kapoor and Ileana D’Cruz in the lead. Shahid Kapoor has been having a torrid time at the box office of late and is desperately in need of a hit. Ileana who made a confident Hindi debut with Barfi has a very different role to portray over here. Phata Poster Nikhla Hero has music by Pritam and is produced by Ramesh S. Taurani (who had also produced Ajab Prem Ki Ghazab Kahani).
Ravi Yadav is the DOP while Steven Bernard is the editor. The film is due for release on 20th September. Here’s the trailer of the film which again seems to be a light hearted entertainer.
