Filmmaker Subhash Ghai said that he and actor Salman Khan stood by their commitment to launch Sooraj Pancholi in the remake version of 1983 film Hero.
Subhash Ghai further said that model-actress Jiah Khan suicide case will have no bearing on the newcomer's debut.
Speculations were rife that Sooraj, son of actor Aditya Pancholi, would not be the part of the remake version after police booked him for allegedly abetting Jiah's suicide but Subhash Ghai denied the reports.
"Sooraj is not at fault and why should he be punished for it? He is a wonderful and potential actor. We had committed to him and we will stand by it. How can we go back? Salman Khan is not the person who will go back on his words," he said.
Actor Suniel Shetty's daughter Athiya will be launched opposite Sooraj in the remake of the 1983 blockbuster directed by Subhash Ghai which starred actors Jackie Shroff and Meenakshi Sheshadri in the lead.
"We are making a film with him (Sooraj). I don't know when it will go on floors. I have to discuss it with Salman Khan. But definitely we are making the film with Sooraj," Subhash Ghai said, adding he was planning to meet Salman next week and chalk out the details.
