Salman to make a guest appearance in Hero

Sooraj Pancholi's debut in the remake of Hero just got bigger. According to sources, Salman has agreed to make a guest appearance in the film.The worst is over for Sooraj Pancholi. Having been released on bail from jail the young actor is busy getting back in the groove.

Salman Khan is all set to take on the mantle of an independent producer with a remake of Subhash Ghai's 1983 blockbuster Hero. The project will launch Sooraj and Suniel Shetty's daughter Aathiya

And the heartening news is that the project is not only on track, it is being preponed to expedite Sooraj's career plans. Nikhil Advani who directs the remake of Hero is working frantically on the script incorporating Sooraj's personality into the hero Jaikishan's character.

Says a source close to the project, "Hero will begin shooting in January 2014. Salman has asked the entire team to get into a work-mode immediately. The script is being re-worked to suit today's times."

However, earlier reports that Subhash Ghai would compose the music for the new Hero are now invalid. Apparently, Salman will use some of Laxmikant-Pyarelal's chartbusters from the original Hero while Sajid-Wajid would be asked to do some fresh music.

Salman has even told Sooraj to hit the gym with a vengeance when they met recently. Says the source, "Sooraj has lost a lot of weight. He needs to get a toned physique. Salman would personally supervise Sooraj's physical training."

Says Sooraj's father Aditya Pancholi, "Yes, by the grace of God everything seems to be getting back on the right track. We will be starting the film sooner than we thought."

As for reports that the Pancholis are installing CCTV cameras to 'monitor' the movement of guests, Aditya says, "This is only a precautionary measure. And we won't do anything to inhibit the family and visitors' movement. We can't allow one bad experience to spoil Sooraj's relations with his family and friends."

Incidentally, Sooraj lives with his grandfather Aditya Pancholi's father.
