‘Salman has taken risk with Hero remake’
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.
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 and team.”
