Jackie Shroff will be seen in the remake of his 1983 blockbuster, but this time he will be playing the villain.
He started his Bollywood career with the 1983 original and now Jackie Shroff has been cast in Nikhil Advani’s remake of Subhash Ghai’s ’80s blockbuster Hero. However, this time, Jackie will play bad man Pasha, the character essayed by Amrish Puri in the original.
Producer Salman Khan felt that the remake will be incomplete without Jaggu making an appearance.
A source close to the development said, “Nikhil loved Salman’s idea. Jackie will shoot with Sooraj Pancholi, Athiya Shetty and the rest of the cast for 20 days.”
The source added, “Jackie is close to both Ghai and Salman. It will be nostalgic for him to act in the remake of a film which established him as a star in Bollywood.”
