Sooraj Pancholi to go bare for ‘Hero’

Aditya Pancholi and Zarina Wahab’s son Sooraj Pancholi headed for Manali for his debut film, 'Hero’ shooting opposite debutante Athiya Shetty, daughter of Suniel Shetty and it is reported that the debutante actor would go bare for an action scene.

"Sooraj will do bare-backed action scenes shot at a very high altitude. The idea is to make the action sequences top-notch since the word is that Jackie Shroff's son Tiger, in his debut film Hero-Panti has done some of the finest stunts ever in a Hindi film.

"Sooraj's forte is drama and emotions. Stunts don't come as naturally to him as they do to Tiger. Sooraj has been practising hard to master the stunts. The Hero team has devised some intricate shirtless action for Sooraj in the rugged rocky Himalayan terrain," the source said

In Manali, Sooraj will shoot few romantic song and action scene. The romantic songs to be filmed on Sooraj and Athiya would be original tunes composed by Sachin-Jigar. The ‘Hero’ team left for Manali on Thursday.

"Initially, Nikhil planned to use a remixed version of the original romantic duet from Subhash Ghai Hero... Tu mera janu hai tu mera dilbar hai. But with music company Saregama charging through the roof for the original songs, Nikhil Advani has opted to get fresh songs recorded," said a source.

The new romantic duet to be shot in Himachal took some time to be composed.

"Nikhil Advani's films have always boasted of outstanding songs and music. He asked Sachin-Jigar to compose a romantic duet to rival Laxmikant-Pyarelal's Tu mera janu hai and Pyaar karne wale from the original Hero," the source added.
