Subhash Ghai: Salman Khan is family to me

Salman Khan is all set to kick-start Aditya Pancholi’s son Suraj and Suniel Shetty’s daughter Athiya’s filmi careers with his production, which is a remake of Subhash Ghai’s 1983 hit film Hero

Reportedly, the veteran director who delivered hits like Karz, Saudagar, Pardes, Khalnayak, etc; didn’t charge Salman Khan for the rights to remake his film. “Salman is a family to me. He said he would like to remake my film and I said go ahead. He said how much should I pay you and I told him, you just make the film. It’s very simple,” Ghai said in an interview.

Ghai, who is all set to direct Salman in his next project, said ”We have committed for a film, but right now he is busy with some other projects. We will sit down together and talk about it soon. I will be directing Salman Khan in my next film.”

Jackie Shroff and Meenakshi Sheshadri debuted with and played the lead roles in Hero. That movie literally kick-started their careers. We’ll have to wait and see if the remake does the same to Sooraj and Athiya’s lives.
