The original 'Hero' Jackie Shroff, refused to watch the special screening of Sooraj Pancholi and AthiyaShetty's remake of Hero, instead he prefers to pay and buy the ticket, watch the movie in theatres and enjoy it just like a common man.
Sooraj Pancholi was quoted as saying, "I told Jackie sir, why aren't you coming inside" (for screening). For which he replied, "Bachcha, I've come only to give you blessings, I'll watch the film in the theatre by spending my money."
The screening of Hero was attended by many Bollywood celebrities and Jackie Shroff was also invited. Jackie stood outside and blessed Sooraj and Athiya and decided not to watch the screening as he wanted to pay for it, and watch when it's released.
Athiya Shetty was quoted as saying, "Jackie uncle had come during the screening to give his blessings which is big matter for us. I also felt really good that his picture with Sooraj recently came on Twitter, which is a special moment."
Hero, is being produced by Salman Khan and directed by Nikhil Advani. The film is a romantic action thriller and a remake of Subhash Ghai's 1983 released movie with the same name, that starred Jackie Shroff.
