Yesteryears heroine Padmini Kolhapure is back in Bollywood, but she now plays the role of a mom, that too to Shahid Kapoor in Rajkumar Santoshi’s film Phata Poster Nikla Hero, which is described as an intense mother-son drama.
Initially, the buzz was that this film is a sequel to the director’s earlier film Ajab Prem Ki Ghazab Kahani. But, the director now says that his film Phata Poster Nikla Hero is about how a mother nurses her son and makes him a hero.
Santoshi, further adds that the film has its doses of humour and witty one liners, but the basic plot is that of a family drama with its emotional quotient. That is the reason for choosing Padmini Kolhapure for the mother role.
Padmini Kolhapure, though not seen in Bollywood movies in recent times, had been working in Marathi films off and on.
