Sooraj Pancholi and Athiya Shetty will now have to wait a little longer to see themselves on the silver screen for the first time. Their debut film ‘Hero’, which is the remake of the 1983 film of the same name, has had its release postponed by almost 3 months. The original film had Jackie Shroff and Meenakshi Sheshadri in the lead.
The reasons for this are two; firstly, the actual release date which was 3rd of July is falling at the time of Ramzan, which is a period during which Muslims avoid watching movies. Secondly, right after that on Eid, Salman Khan releases his much-awaited film Bajrangi Bhaijaan.
Directed by acclaimed director Nikhil Advani, ‘Hero’ will now release on the 25th of September 2015.
