Indian filmmaker Subhash Ghai said that he and actor Salman Khan stand by their commitment to launch Suraj Pancholi in the remake version of 1983 Bollywood film “Hero.”
Ghai further said that the suicide case of Indian model-actress Jiah Khan will have no bearing on the newcomer’s debut.
Speculations were rife that Pancholi, son of actor Aditya Pancholi, would not be a part of the remake after police arrested him for allegedly abetting Khan’s suicide, but Ghai denied the reports.
“Suraj is not at fault and why should he be punished for it? He is a wonderful and potential actor. We had committed to him and we will stand by it (our decision). How can we go back? Salman is not a person who would go back on his words,” he said.
Actor Suniel Shetty’s daughter Athiya will be launched opposite Pancholi in the remake of the 1983 blockbuster directed by Ghai which starred actors Jackie Shroff and Meenakshi Sheshadri in the lead.
“I don’t know when it will go on floors. I have to discuss it with Salman. But definitely we are making the film with Suraj,” Ghai said, adding he was planning to meet Khan next week and chalk out the details.
