Ileana D'Cruz, who is acting with Shahid Kapoor for the first time in upcoming action-comedy Phata Poster Nikhla Hero, feels Shahid's chocolate boy look works in favour of their film and that it is also the reason for their great on-screen chemistry.
"On-screen chemistry has really worked for me and Shahid, as it is a fresh pairing. Shahid is playing such a wonderful role. He has got chocolate boy kind of image, but I think it has really worked for our film. He is playing different shades of everything," Ileana said.
"There is immense amount of action in the film, but there is also comedy, drama and so much of romance as well. I think it has worked so well for us and people will see me second time after Barfi!, so I believe it will work," she added.
"Every actor has hits and flops but the most important thing for the actor is 'whether the audiences want to watch you (on-screen), they like you? If the audiences like or reject your films, you can change, you can improve your choices but if the audiences don't want to see you, then that's a big problem," Shahid said in an interview.
"So you should always do the films for your audience and you should always have a relationship with your audience," he added.
Phata Poster Nikhla Hero, directed by Rajkumar Santoshi, features Shahid as Vishwas Rao, an aspiring actor, while Ileana plays a self-appointed social worker, Kajol.
It will hit the theatres on September 20.
