Until recently Shahid Kapoor was regarded as one of the best-packaged star-actors among the contemporary entertainers of Bollywood. With his last two 'epic' films Mausam and Teri Meri Kahaani proving to be epic losses at the box office, a lot was seen to be hinging on the potential success of his new film Phata Poster Nikhla Hero (Ppnh).
But look at the irony! Wags within the entertainment industry are cruelly labelling it Phata Poster Nikhla Zero. Says a director, who not so long ago offered Shahid a solid role in a film that went on to be a runaway success, "Shahid asked me for a hard-bound script. I told him I don't work that way. He said he works in no other way. I want to know what kind of a hard-bound script Santoshi offered him for Phata Poster... I can't see any evidence of a script in the film. »

After celebrating a decade in the film industry this year, Shahid Kapoor is gearing up for round two at the box office with upcoming releases Phata Poster Nikhla Hero this month and Rambo Rajkumar, which comes out in November.

Shahid has learnt from this and says “Every actor has hits and flops…So you should always do the films for your audience and you should always have a relationship with your audience”.
Things are looking up for Shahid though, as Rajkumar Santoshi turned to him for Phata Poster Nikhla Hero to replace Ranbir Kapoor and now Shahid has also been confirmed to act in Vishal Bhardwaj’s adaptation of Hamlet, »

Let the fact be told now. In a strange twist of turns, there has been a role swapping of sorts between the two young Kapoors - Ranbir and Shahid. The story started over half a decade back when Ajab Prem Ki Ghazab Kahaani was conceptualized.
"That was the time when Raj Kumar Santoshi was planning to make the film with Shahid Kapoor. He had actually put it all together keeping the youngster in mind. However, since he was busy with Kismat Konnection, there were no dates available with him. This is when Santoshi decided to reach out to another 'promising newcomer' who was looking at making his presence felt. The boy was Ranbir Kapoor who pronto came on board and rest, as they say, is history," informs a source.
