Phata Poster Nikla Salman Khan?

Is Shahid Kapoor aping Salman in the first look of his new film?

Judging by the first trailer of his new film Phata Poster Nikla Hero (PPNH), we can’t help but see Salman Khan in Shahid Kapoor’s mannerisms

Shahid’s new avatar in PPNH has a hangover of Salman’s Dabangg – the police uniform, those aviators…the only major difference is the comic element to it, which is a trademark of the Rajkumar Santoshi style.

This will be Shahid Kapoor’s first film in 2013, after the debacle of Teri Meri Kahaani in 2012. And even as you see Prabhu Deva and Rohit Shetty’s joint influence in the action sequences, you cannot miss Santoshi’s fun touch spicing up the trailer. Catchy it is, but will it help Shahid return to the list of successful actors? We will have to wait and watch…
