Sooraj Pancholi has never danced in his life until the offer for Hero movie came his way. But he is a hardcore fan of actor <g data-gr-id="27">Hritik</g> Roshan’s dance and wish to fit into that bill. “I saw Kaho Na Pyar He in my teens and was too much attracted with <g data-gr-id="28">Hritik’s</g> style. Thus wanted to be like him. He is a wonderful actor and dancer with <g data-gr-id="20">perfect</g> body. I don’t want to copy him but want to be like him,” he told Millennium Post while in Chandigarh to promote his debut movie Hero.
Sooraj dreamt of being a pilot but had to drop the idea as his maths was too week. “I was a very naughty kid who always used to bunk school as well tuition classes. I was terrible in mathematics due to which I couldn’t opt for the course of pilot,” he mentioned and added, “Though I also wanted to be an actor thus joined Sanjay Leela Bhansali as assistant director.” Sooraj feels that assisting <g data-gr-id="24">a best</g> director is an institute in itself in comparison to taking acting classes.
Coming back to his film Sooraj is too excited about it. “The <g data-gr-id="29">blue print</g> of Jackie Shroff- Meenakshi Sheshadri Hero is similar to this one but still all the characters are poles apart. This is the modern version of <g data-gr-id="23">older</g> flick,” he signed off.
