Mumbai: Actor Shahid Kapoor, who will be seen essaying the character of an aspiring actor in upcoming action-comedy `Phata Poster Nikhla Hero`, says like his character, he too, used to dream and think of becoming an actor and having huge posters and hoardings.
In the film, Shahid`s character Vishwas Rao always aspires and dreams of becoming an actor.
"Just like my character Vishwas Rao says in the film, `ek din mere bhi bade bade poster lagengey`, I also used to have such dreams before becoming an actor and me too used to think `me too will have such huge huge posters` (mere bhi ek din itne bade bade poster lagengey)," Shahid said here in an interview.
Before foraying into acting in 2003, the 32-year-old worked in quite a few music videos and commercials. Later he joined Shiamak Davar Institute for the Performing Arts and was seen as a dancer in 1999 released film `Taal`.
"I still remember when I used to stand beneath the hoardings and think `whether I will have such huge posters or not` (mere itne bade posters hongey ya nahin?). So, definitely I too have been through those moments. I too have gone for the auditions," he added.
Directed by Rajkumar Santoshi, `Phata Poster Nikhla Hero` features Ileana D`Cruz and hit the screens Sep 20.
