Salman Khan shares screen space with Shahid Kapoor for the first time in any film. The star shot for the scene with Shahid, who plays a police officer in the film, a few days back at a suburban studio. The shoot reportedly lasted for six hours, but the movie’s lead actress Ileana D'Cruz was not a part of the scene as it included only Salman and Shahid.
Salman Khan is the surprise element of Phata Poster Nikla Hero, and the makers have kept the details of his role under wraps. After the shoot, Salman apparently even spent some time with Shahid Kapoor and others. Naturally, the crew members were thrilled to have ‘Dabangg’ Khan amidst them. Shahid’s spokesperson even confirmed the news.
Director Rajkumar Santoshi and Salman Khan share a very special bond. The two are good friends! Sallu also made a cameo in his last release Ajab Prem Ki Ghazab Kahaani that starred his then girlfriend Katrina Kaif with Ranbir Kapoor.
Phata Poster Nikla Hero is a romantic comedy, and is expected to release on August 23. Some portions of the film remain to be shot.
