Salman Khan’s home production banner Salman Khan Films’ first release ‘Bajrangi Bhaijaan’ has already crossed the Rs 300 crore mark at domestic box office.
Now, in an attempt to make the second film as successful as the first, Salman, who has been shooting for Sooraj Barjatya’s ‘Prem Ratan Dhan Payo’ in Karjat, is giving all his personal attention to everything related to Hero.
He has been attending meetings on the sets of the family drama itself. The key marketing members of Salman Khan Films and Eros International are visiting Karjat regularly to discuss marketing strategies with Salman about the film as he doesn’t get much time to travel due to his packed schedule.
“Salman is not just launching the careers of Sooraj and Athiya by making a film for them but he is also supervising each and every department of filmmaking and marketing for Hero. He is presently shooting non-stop for Sooraj Barjatya’s Prem Ratan Dhan Payo in Karjat and in whatever free time he is getting between the shots he is only discussing the marketing strategies of Hero” a source close to the film said.
Salman is launching Aditya Pancholi’s son Sooraj Pancholi and Suniel Shetty’s daughter Athiya Shetty through this film and he wants to leave no stone unturned to make their debut films successful.
“The actor has taken Sooraj completely under his wings and has monitored everything, right from grooming, editing the film, marketing to presenting the newcomers appropriately. Salman is looking into everything and making sure everything goes well” the source added.
Hero is the remake of Subhash Ghai’s 1983 hit film starring Jackie Shroff. Directed by Nikhil Advani, the remake is slated to release on 11th September.
