Salman has taken risk with ‘Hero’ remake: Subhash Ghai

Mumbai, July 16 (IANS) Filmmaker Subhash Ghai, who made the original “Hero”, says superstar Salman Khan has taken a risk by producing the remake of the 1983 film with Sooraj Pancholi and Athiya Shetty.

“A huge applause needs to be given to Salman who is taking this 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,” Ghai said here.

Ghai has also been credited as one of the producers of the film, but he said: “Salman is the real producer and I’m 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, music of the film, and the whole film in itself has been made by him, Nikhil (director Nikhil Advani) and team.”

To that, Salman replied: “This wouldn’t have been possible without your help. You’ve given the script and blessings, what more do we need?”

The new “Hero” also stars Tigmanshu Dhulia and Aditya Pancholi, and has music by Meet Bros Anjaan, Amaal Malik and Sachin-Jigar.
