A source says that the filmmaker arranged for a screening in his office on Sunday night. Apart from Salman, Advani and the lead actors, those in attendance included Salim Khan, Suniel and Mana Shetty, and Aditya Panscholi and Zarina Wahab.

The source adds that Salman loved the film. “He appreciated the effort put in by the young actors. He seemed to be quite happy with the way the film is shaping up."

Hero’s last schedule is slated to take place in Paris where a song will be shot over 4-5 days. The film is a remake of the 1983 film of the same name which starred Jackie Shroff in the lead role.
