Phata Poster Nikhla Hero is a Bollywood action comedy film starring Shahid Kapoor and Ileana D’Cruz in lead roles. The film is produced by Ramesh Taurani of Tips Music Films and directed by Rajkumar Santoshi.
The story revolves around an aspiring actor mistaken for a super cop the ensuing hilarity as the plot twists and turns. Vishwas Rao (Shahid Kapoor) actually wants to be an actor, but circumstances compel him to become a fake cop. And unlike other cops are who are used to violence, Rao has a tough time coming to terms with it. Since he’s aspiring to become an actor, he can’t afford any injury, especially on the face, lest his acting career comes to an end before it even takes off. The humour makes the sequence funny. Even the action has several funny moments in them, without any blood and gore, the kind that we see in Jackie Chan films.(TOI)
