Hero release postponed to Sept 25

Since many days, speculations have been rife about the postponement of the upcoming film Hero starring debutants Sooraj Pancholi and Athiya Shetty.


While the two were recently seen together in a sizzling photoshoot for a reputed film magazine, now, it seems that the audience will have to wait for a while to see them together on the big screen.

Apparently, the makers have decided to change the release date of the film owing to religious reasons and the release of Salman Khan’s film Bajrangi Bhaijaan. Hero, which is a remake of the 1983 Jackie Shroff, Meenakshi Sheshadri starrer by the same name, will now release in the first week of September instead of July.

From what we hear, the film which was set to release on July 3 falls in the week of Ramzan, when many will abstain from watching films as a form of observing Ramzan. Moreover, considering that Salman Khan’s Bajrangi Bhaijaan is releasing during Eid, the makers want to ensure that Hero releases only after the superstar’s film hits the theatres.

Co-produced by Eros International, Hero that is directed by Nikhil Advani will now release on September 25.
