charmed. The young heart-throbe didn’t miss to mention the fun they had during the making of the film. On the other hand, Athiya, who has stepped into Meenakshi’s shoes for the remake, noted that her father has been supportive in her journey of becoming an actress. “He was supportive and positive and suggested me to work hard and enjoy my work. My hobby became my profession  and hopefully it would remain a profession after September 11 (the release date of Hero),” she confidently remarked.

Athiya mentioned that her favourite scene with Sooraj in the film was the one at airport, whereas Sooraj had the shooting of the song ‘Jab We Met’ as his favourite. They also mentioned Salman Khan as a wonderful producer, who left no stones unturned while making ‘Hero’ happen, and quoted him as their great mentor.

As per the movie synopsis, the story suggests that when two worlds collide, a boy and a girl find themselves stuck in a whirlpool of such intense love that they would do anything, go to any extent and face all odds for the one they love.

Radha is the 21-year old daughter of the formidable Chief of Police. Sooraj on the other hand, has been raised by the unforgiving streets of Mumbai.

Hero is the story of love under conflict, but should their love prevail, has to be found out!
