When Shahid Kapoor made his Bollywood debut with Ishq Vishk, people said he was just a copy of Shahrukh Khan but if you look from another angle, people actually saw a hint of the King Khan in this new actor. But now, you might just find a bit of Salman Khan in Shahid Kapoor when his movie Phata Poster Nikla Hero releases.
Shahid Kapoor revealed that in this upcoming movie, he would be playing an ardent fan of Sallu Bhai. Not so difficult to guess if you’ve watched the first trailer of the movie. And this is not the first time Salman Khan has been a fan of an on-screen actor. Ranbir Kapoor in Ajab Prem Ki Ghazab Kahaani was also a fan of Salman and we got to see a guest appearance from the Dabangg actor. There are rumours that Salman might also be a part of Phata Poster Nikla Hero.
Looking at the past and how all the new actors like Ranbir Kapoor, Ranveer Singh and Imran Khan have become so bankable, Shahid Kapoor desperately needs a huge hit. The actor entered Bollywood almost a decade ago and has appeared in 19 movies and was also hailed as the next big thing in Bollywood. But his journey hasn’t been the way he wanted to and delivered six straight flops.
He somehow managed to lose Karan Johar’s Gori Tere Pyaar Mein and Yash Raj Film’s Shudd Desi Romance with his not-so-friendly attitude and with not many movies under his belt except for Rambo Rajkumar & Phata Poster Nikla Hero, he really needs to start working hard enough to compete with the new crop of stars!
