Shahid Kapoor with Ileana D'Cruz in 'Phata Poster Nikla Hero'
'Phata Poster Nikla Hero' is directed by Rajkumar Santoshi, who had earlier roped in Salman for a special appearance in his film 'Ajab Prem Ki Ghazab Kahani' as well.
Talking about his character's fascination with Salman, Shahid said, "He (Shahid's character) is a very big fan of Salman Khan and in one scene we have even worn a 'Being Human' t-shirt and in another scene, the character has gone to buy vegetables with his mother and his hands are full and he is eating a banana standing and watching the poster of 'Dabangg 2'."
'Phata Poster Nikla Hero' also stars Ileana D'Cruz and is slated to release on August 23.
