Salman Khan is all set to take on the mantle of an independent producer with the remake of Subhash Ghai‘s 1983 blockbuster Hero. The project will launch Aditya Pancholi’s son and Suniel Shetty’s daughter Aathiya. It seems that the director, who gave hits like Karz, Saudagar and Khalnayak, did’t charge a penny to his good friend Sallu.  “Salman is a family to me. He said he would like to remake my film and I said go ahead. He said how much should I pay you and I told him, you just make the film. It’s very simple,” he said in an interview.

It has also been established that Ghai is all set to direct Salman in his next project, “We have committed for a film, but right now he is busy with some other projects. We will sit down together and talk about it soon. I will be directing Salman Khan in my next film,” he said when he was asked about their venture together.

Hero is still remembered for it songs Lambi judai and Nindya se jaagi bahaar. Jackie Shroff and Meenakshi Sheshadri played the lead roles in the original, while Aditya Pancholi’s son Sooraj and Suniel Shetty’s daughter Athiya are expected to feature in the remake.
