Bollywood film-maker Subhash Ghai has said that actor Salman Khan has taken a huge risk by producing the 1983 movie “Hero” remake with Suraj Pancholi (son of Aditya Pancholi) and Athiya Shetty (daughter of Sunil Shetty).
Ghai has made the original “Hero” in 1983.
Ghai has said, “A huge applause needs to be given to Salman who has taken the risk of producing a film which was made 30 years back. And he has the courage to make a better film than the Hero, made 30 years back. My blessings to the hero and the team.”
Talking about Salman, the veteran film-maker said, “Salman is the real producer and I am the fake one. He has loved me all his life and told me since it’s your story, you should become the producer as well. But the entire effort has been put in by him. The music of the film and the whole film in itself has been made by him, Nikhil Advani and the rest of the team.”
With respect to that comment, Salman replied: “This would not have been possible without your help. You have given the script and blessings. What more do we need?”
Directed by Nikhil Advani, Hero also features Tigmanshu Dhulia and Aditya Pancholi, apart from the lead pair Suraj Pancholi and Athiya Shetty. The film is slated to hit the theatres on September 11.
