Anupam Kher looks ripped in Shiv Shastri Balboa’s new poster
The film, which also stars Neena Gupta, is set to hit the screens on February 11
Anupam Kher took to Twitter on Tuesday to share a new poster of his upcoming film, Shiv Shastri Balboa. He also announced that the film will be released on February 11.
In the picture, Anupam's face was pasted on the body of Sylvester Stallone from the hit film, Rocky. A dog next to him has a dialogue box, which reads “Fata poster Nikla…(the poster was torn and out came…).” The film’s title is written on the bottom.
“Meri agli release hone waali film ka naam hai- Shiv Shastri Balboa! ye ek sadhaaran insaan ki asaadharan vyaktitiva ki kahaani hai. Ye aapko hasane ke saath saath, aapke dil mai ek khoobsurat bhaavna jagaayegi aatmvishwaas ki (My next film, which is about to be released, is titled Shiv Shastri Balboa! It is a story of an ordinary person’s extraordinary personality. This film will make you laugh and will induce beautiful feelings--like of confidence--in you). Releasing on 10th February ONLY IN THEATRES! Jai Ho!” he tweeted.

Praising the film’s poster Akshay Kumar wrote, “Dearest Anupam Kher! Stop it now! Maine aapko body banane ko kaha tha! par aapne toh kuch zayada hi seriously le liya (I asked you to make a body but you have taken my words quite seriously). Poster looks interesting. Good luck for Shiv Shastri Balboa! Keep going.”
Shiv Shastri Balboa stars Neena Gupta, Jugal Hansraj, Nargis Fakhri and Sharib Hashmi. It is directed by Indian-American filmmaker Ajayan Venugopalan. In September, Anupam shared the first poster of the film, which showed him and Neena as a married couple stranded in a village with cows grazing in the background. Anupam seems to be asking for a lift as Neena sits with the luggage. A pug-breed dog is also accompanying them.
Anupam has multiple projects in the pipeline such as Vivek Agnihotri's The Vaccine War, Anurag Basu's Metro…In Dino, Kangana Ranaut's Emergency and G Ashok's Kuch Khattaa Ho Jaay.
