“Phata Poster Nikla Hero” is directed by Rajkumar Santoshi, who had earlier roped in Salman for a special appearance in his film “Ajab Prem Ki Ghazab Kahani” as well.

Talking about his character’s fascination with Salman, Shahid said: “He (Shahid’s character) is a very big fan of Salman Khan and in one scene we have even worn a ‘Being Human’ t-shirt and in another scene, the character has gone to buy vegetables with his mother and his hands are full and he is eating a banana standing and watching the poster of ‘Dabangg 2′.”

Being Human is Salman’s NGO.
