Joining the ranks of Alia Bhatts and Arjun Kapoors of the industry are two new faces - Sooraj-Aditya-Panscholi and Athiya-Suniel-Shetty. The two kids will make their debut in the official remake of Jackie Shroff's 1983 blockbuster, Hero. Director Subhash Ghai has sold the remake rights to Salman Khan and the development marks an end to the speculation over 18-year-old Athiya's launch vehicle.
While it is not clear who will direct the project, Mirror has learnt that Ghai, who has an ear for music, has been requested to score for the film. If that works out, it will be a milestone in the filmmaker's long and eventful career. According to a source close to the developments, "Salman has requested Subhashji to help with the music. He has always been a fan of his musical hits Karz, Karma and Khalnayak."
As for the kids, Athiya was in New York last year where she studied filmmaking and liberal arts at the New York Film Academy. Reportedly, she was even one of the hot contenders for Sajid Nadiadwala's Heropanti, starring Jackie Shroff's son Tiger.
Sooraj has been training in dance and martial arts. He assisted Sanjay Leela Bhansali in Hrithik-Aishwarya starrer Guzaarish and Kabir Khan in Salman-Katrina starrer Ek Tha Tiger. According to reports, that is where he caught Salman's attention.
The film is likely to go on floors by the end of this year. Subhash Ghai remained unavailable for comment.
