Suniel Shetty’s daughter Athiya and Aditya Pancholi’s son Sooraj come together for Hero, a reloaded version of Subhash Ghai’s super hit starring Jackie Shroff and Meenakshi Sheshadri from the 1980s. When two worlds collide, a boy and a girl find themselves stuck in a whirlpool of such intense love that they would do anything, go to any extent and face all odds for the one they love. Radha is the 21 year-old daughter of the formidable Chief of Police. Sooraj on the other hand, has been raised by the unforgiving streets of Mumbai.

This film is co-produced by Ghai and Salman Khan. It has many firsts. It is Sooraj Pancholi’s first film; it is Athiya Shetty’s first film; as well as Salman Khan Production’s first film. Khan launched his own production house which will debut by producing the remake Hero film.

The film is scheduled to release on 11 September 2015.
