Salman Khan’s remake of Hero will be the debut platform of Sooraj Pancholi and Athiya Shetty. Along with the two debutants it also has Govinda, Vinod Khanna, Anita Hassanandani and Kader Khan.
The story too has been modified with Subhash Ghai’s permission. In fact, Ghai seemed happy about the modification,” I think they’ve done a fantastic job of contemporizing my script to suit today’s tastes.”
Sources said, Salman Khan wanted to cast Jackie Shroff in the movie too, as he felt that the film would be incomplete without the presence of the original ‘Hero. ’“Nikhil loved Salman’s idea. Jackie will shoot with Sooraj Pancholi, Athiya Shetty and the rest of the cast for 20 days. Jackie is close to both Ghai and Salman. It will be nostalgic for him to act in the remake of a film which established him as a star in Bollywood.”
Sources added that Jackie could not do it. He said, “I was approached, but things didn’t work out because of date issues. My friend’s kids are in the film and I wish them all the best.”
Well we are quite sure that Salman Khan will be a success in production too.
