Incidentally, the cricketer and the actor don’t know each other personally and insiders say neither was it a publicity gimmick.

Says a source, “Though Shahid is a huge cricket fan, he doesn’t know Sachin personally. The entire team is happy to know where the applause is coming from.”
Producer Ramesh Taurani says, “I have met Sachin casually a couple of times but this comes as a major surprise. The fact that he has liked the film’s promo is a genuine compliment for all of us.”

An ecstatic Shahid says, “I was so happy to see Sachin sir’s Facebook page declaring September as the Phata Poster month.”
