Priyanka Chopra who started her career three years back had signed a film called Gandhi, opposite Sunny Deol which actually was supposed to be her debut film. The project however got shelved and Priyanka was cast opposite Sunny in The Hero. That was the time when Sunny was a big star and Priyanka was just a newcomer.
But today, the situation is the other way round. After giving a number of hits, the latest being Krrish, Priyanka Chopra is now a famous star. On the other hand Sunny Deol isn't much in news since a long time.
So when director Guddu Dhanoa who was to direct the film, decided to revive the project, it came as a humble gesture when Priyanka Chopra agreed to do the film and gave her dates. The film now has the entire original cast including Sunny Deol and Priyanka Chopra but the title and plot of the film have been changed.
