If Kareena Kapoor is shinning as the film industry's Heroine, her former former beau Shahid Kapoor isn't far behind. Word has it that Shahid's upcoming film with director Rajkumar Santoshi was titled Heropanti.
This is the same film that was originally penned for Abhishek Bachchan who has to opt out of it citing date problems. While Shahid was excited about working with Santoshi, it was the title of the film made him feel a tad awkward.
The actor didn't want people to draw comparisons between the titles of Heroine and Heropanti. " Shahid is not one who interferes with people's creative decisions, but this around, he was hoping that Santoshi would alter the title of the movie. It was a little too "in your face", says a source close to the actor.
But luckily for Shahid who is yet to start shooting for the film, it will be called "Phata Poster Nikla Hero". We're hoping this ensures that the comparisons will be at bay.
