Ask him about the long gap and he says, ''I started POWER in 2010. But there was a goof-up for the dates of that film. So I lost a lot of precious time on that film.''
Talking about his latest film he says, ''PHATA POSTER NIKHLA HERO is a complete entertainer. It has all the elements of a healthy film. It has got humour, emotion and a good story line. It has no double meaning dialogues and the entire family can watch the film together. It doesn't boast of an epic story. It has a simple story, told very entertainingly.''
Ask him whether Shahid Kapoor was the original choice for the film and the director says, ''Shahid was very apt for PHATA POSTER NIKHLA HERO. We wanted a young guy who's on a threshold of making a choice in his career. We had an option of Ranbir Kapoor also but he was busy with BARFI!.''
The action-comedy PHATA POSTER NIKHLA HERO is all set to release this Friday.
