Salman Khan will share screen space with Shahid Kapoor for the first time in Rajkumar Santoshi’s upcoming film, Phata Poster Nikla Hero.
The Dabangg (2010) star will be seen in a special appearance in the movie, in which Shahid plays the role of a police officer. “They shot for the scene together over the last weekend at a suburban studio. The shoot lasted for six hours or so,” reveals a source close to the production house.
However, details of Khan’s role are being kept under wraps. “Rajkumar wants it to be a surprise for the audience. So, no one, apart from the actors involved in the scene, is aware of what his role is.”
Apparently, after Salman finished shooting his portion, he stayed back on the sets for the rest of the day. The source adds, “He and Rajkumar are really close friends, so he was catching up with him. In fact, he even spent a few hours bonding with Shahid. They were seen chit-chatting for quite some time after the shoot.” The film’s female lead, Ileana D’Cruz, will not be part of the scene.
While most of the film’s shooting has been finished, an insider says that they have another month’s work left to complete. When contacted, Shahid’s spokesperson confirms the news, saying, “Yes, Shahid and Salman shot together a few days ago.”
