Phata Poster Nikhla Hero
Bollywood Hungama - over 4 years
Having collaborated on two films in the past -- the critically acclaimed THE LEGEND OF BHAGAT SINGH and the commercially successful AJAB PREM KI GHAZAB KAHANI -- producer Ramesh Taurani and director Rajkumar Santoshi join forces for their third endeavor PHATA POSTER NIKHLA HERO. From the looks of it, PHATA POSTER NIKHLA HERO falls into the same genre as the latter, while the motive is crystal clear: to offer infinite hilarity in those 2+ hours. The question is, will Taurani and Santoshi experience triumph yet again? With a catchy title, promos that emit accurate signals to its target audience and a genre that's the flavor of the season, will PHATA POSTER NIKHLA HERO have a heroic run at the ticket window? Santoshi has proved his versatility ever since he made his debut film.

My biggest hit came when Kareena and I broke up: Shahid Kapoor
The Express Tribune Blogs - over 4 years
“Behind every successful man, there is a woman,” goes the saying; but while this might be true for many, it stands meaningless for actor Shahid Kapoor, who thinks his personal life does not affect his professional one. In an interview with the Hindustan Times, Shahid said confessed that his most successful film came at a time when he and Kareena had broken up. “I don’t think my personal life has anything to do with my professional life. In fact, when I was in my most stable relationship [dating Kareena Kapoor], I had many unsuccessful films. My most successful film, Jab We Met [2007], came when Kareena and I had broken up,” said Shahid. “I can only see it from a practical point of view and I feel that some choices didn’t work for me.” Known for his boy-next-door looks, Shahid rose to fame with his debut movie Ishq Vishk (2003) alongside actors Amrita Rao and Shenaz Treasurywala. His sizzling dance moves and impactful acting made him shine in Boll...
