In an interview some time back, Jackie, expressing his opinion about the recent “Hero”, said: “It felt really good to know about it. Both of them (Sooraj and Athiya) are close to me and are my friends’ children.. It’s been 30 years since I did ‘Hero’, today the new kids have a fresh attitude and new pride in them. I’m happy that I get to watch it something like this and enjoy.”

“Hero”, directed by Subhash Ghai and released in 1983, was a huge success which had brought Jackie Shroff immense stardom. He went on to do numerous successful films later on.

Sooraj had recalled Jackie’s advice to him in an interview some time back. “Jackie sir said, ‘I’ve seen your trailer and I liked it, but you guys nowadays get scared quickly. So don’t be afraid, you’ve made one ‘Hero’ but there are 15 more ‘Heroes’ to be made. Be fearless and confident’.”

“Hero”, produced by Salman Khan and Ghai, is releasing this Friday.
