Chennai, Oct 15: Bollywood young star Shahid Kapoor is coming with mass masala entertainer, tentatively titled 'Phata Poster Nikla Hero'. Rajkumar Santoshi, who has given hits like 'Ghayal', 'Andaz Apna Apna', 'Ajab Prem Ki Ghazab Kahani', will be directing the film. Barfi beauty Ileana will be romancing Shahid in the film. The film will be produced by Ramesh Taurani's Tips Films.
According to sources Shahid is hitting gym after 4 long months to get perfect shape for his character in "Phata Poster Nikla Hero". He features sans shirt in several scenes in the film and has been asked to buff up for the role.
31yrs Shahid who is the heart throb of many females stopped workouts for his boy-next-door role in Maneesh Sharma's film, but has since dropped out of the project. Shahid way back in Aug tweeted, "Not worked out in 3 months cause I'm not supposed to look fit for my next ....... Missing the weights."
Shahid started training with his regular trainer, Abbas Ali, a week ago. The first day at the gym wasn't easy for him. A source close to the actor said, "There was a lot playing on his mind that day. Sasha was battling through some personal issues. He was also unhappy that the film for which he let go off his strong built didn't work out ultimately." Lately, Abbas Ali has been updating Shahid fans over Twitter, posting photos showing Shahid working out.
