Sooraj Panscholi will go bald in his debut film, 'Hero'. The newcomer will shave off his hair for the last portion of the film that will be shot some time in June.
Nikhil Advani, the film’s director tells us, “Sooraj will soon go bald for the film. After our Paris schedule, which starts on June 16, we will come back to India and shoot portions where his character’s look undergoes a change in the film. He will be chopping off all his hair.”
The director adds that since the story spans a period of two years, stylist Anaita Shroff Adajania will create a look for Sooraj that makes this amply clear.
Advani also admits that the film’s storyline is the same as that of Jackie Shroff’s 'Hero'. “However, it has been made more relevant to present times.”
The film will also see the debut of Suniel Shetty’s daughter, Athiya. Director Tigmanshu Dhulia is playing Shammi Kapoor’s role in this version. Like in the original where Jackie’s character was called by his real name, Sooraj is also going to be called Sooraj in this film.
