There was lot of speculation regarding Sooraj Pancholi’s entry into Bollywood post his coming out from jail. Salman Khan has put all doubts aside and has called Sooraj to have a discussion over a project. Salman Khan wants to cast Sooraj in the remake of Subhas Ghai’s movie ‘Hero’. The original movie ‘Hero’ was released in 1983 with Jackie Shroff playing the lead.

Salman Khan has called Sooraj to Hyderabad where he is shooting for his movie ‘Mental’. Sooraj has been offered to play the lead role. Subhas Ghai is also scheduled to visit Hyderabad in connection with the same project.

Along with Sooraj, actor Suneil Shetty’s 18 year old daughter Athiya will be making a debut in Bollywood with this remake of ‘Hero’.

Aditya Pancholi, father of Sooraj Pancholi confirmed the news and said, “I think Salman has called him to Hyderabad and I will request the police to allow him to go and meet him. We will see what he (Sooraj) wants to do as of now.” Aditya also figures for a major role in ‘Mental’.

Subhas Ghai said, “It’s just bad luck; I don’t think Sooraj should be blamed for what happened. But Salman will take the final call.”
