Subhash Ghai to remake Hero with Sunil Shetty’s daughter and Aditya Pancholi’s son in the lead!

The Showman of Bollywood will introduce two new actors – Sooraj Pancholi and Athiya Shetty – to reprise the role of Jackie Shroff and Meenakshi Sheshadri in the remake of the 1983 musical hit

Subhash Ghai, known for his big budget multi-starrers, has joined the bandwagon of the new generation of filmmakers obsessed with remakes and sequels. The showman, we hear, is remaking his own musical hit Hero which made Jackie Shroff and Meenakshi Sheshadri overnight stars.

Ghai has already signed Aditya Pancholi’s son, Sooraj Pancholi and Sunil Shetty’s daughter, Athiya Shetty to reprise Jackie and Meenakshi’s roles. While it is still not clear who will direct the project (we wonder if Ghai will take on the mantle), the film is likely to go on floors by the end of this year after the Whistling Woods International head honcho finishes shooting Kaanchi. When we verified the story with Sunil, the proud father confirmed it by sending us a text message saying, ‘Yes.’

Earlier, there were several reports that said Athiya would debut with none other than Ranbir Kapoor! Then there were talks about her debuting with Jackie’s son Tiger Shroff in Sajid Nadiadwala’s Heropanti.

Anyway, the question is, will Sooraj live up to the movie’s title like Jaggu dada did three decades ago? And will Athiya make a splashing debut like Deepika Padukone and Sonakshi Sinha? We wish the aspiring actors all the luck and wait to see how many fireworks this jodi brings, on and off screen!
