In the midst of all the push and pull which was happening around the final set of Bollywood films eyeing for a Diwali slot, Salman Khan's Heroes has taken the lead. The film is all set to arrive on 24th October and the promotion would kick start any moment.
Confirms a source attached to the film, " Heroes has been ready for some time but we wanted just the right time for it to arrive. I guess the weekend preceding Diwali (which falls on 28th October) is just perfect since not just we get a good first weekend for ourselves (24th-26th), we also can take advantage of holidays which fall on 27th and 28th. A 5 day long weekend should be good enough to expect a bountiful for Heroes."
The film is set in an episodic mode and apart from Salman Khan, also stars Sunny Deol, Bobby Deol, Mithun Chakraborty, Preity Zinta, Dino Morea, Sohail Khan, Amrita Arora, Riya Sen and Vatsal Sheth. Produced by Samir Karnik, Bharat Shah and Vikas Kapoor, the film is directed by Samir Karnik himself whose Nanhe Jaisalmer released last year.
Earlier titled Mera Bharat Mahaan, Heroes is a story of two boys who start their road trip from Delhi to Chandigarh and then Manali to Ladhakh. On their journey these boys come across certain real life characters played by Salman, Preity Zinta, Sohail, Sunny and Bobby on this road trip and these people have such an affect that the seed of heroism blooms within them. Basically, the story is about this drastic change in the lives of these two boys.
