MUMBAI: Shahid Kapoor was last seen in the Kunal Kohli dud ‘Teri Meri Kahaani’ alongside Priyanka Chopra. It’s almost after a year that one will see him back in action with ‘Phata Poster Nikhla Hero’. The makers of the film, Tips celebrated the completion of the film in Mumbai.
It’s rare that the makers of a film celebrate the completion of a film. All eyes are on the release and box-office and celebrations come much later. But looks like the makers of ‘Phata Poster Nikhla Hero’ are quite upbeat about their film.
Present at the party were several stars from the film. Mukesh Tiwary, Tinnu Anand, Saurabh Shukla, yesteryear actress Padmini Kolhapure, singer Mika, producers Kumar and Ramesh Taurani from Tips, Darshan Zariwala, director Rajkumar Santoshi and ofcourse can we forget the show stoppers – Shahid Kapoor and Illeana D’Cruz.
With ‘Phata Poster Hero’ set to release on 20 September, there surely are many things up for stake. More importantly to see if ‘Phata Poster Nikhla Hero’ will revive Shahid Kapoor’s career again? It is also the first time that Shahid Kapoor is being paired alongside Illeana D’Cruz last seen in ‘Barfi’. Director, Rajkumar Santoshi also returns to direction after four years. He had last directed ‘Ajab Prem Ki Ghazab Kahani’ featuring Ranbir Kapoor and Katrina Kaif. The film was a laugh ride all the way and it will be exciting to see if the serious director proves his mettle yet again with comedy.
With hit films like ‘Andaz Apna Apna’ and ‘Ajab Prem Ki Kahani’, it doesn’t seem a difficult task.
Looks like the makers too are upbeat about the film and the bash was nothing short of a celebration. While Illeana D’Cruz stunned in a black gown, Shahid Kapoor kept it simple in green trousers and a navy-blue t-shirt for the evening.
It needs to be seen whether the celebrations continue even after ‘Phata Poster Nikhla Hero’ releases on 20 September as well. For now it’s party time!
