Sooraj Pancholi made his dream Bollywood debut with director Nikkhil Advani’s ‘Hero’, which was a remake of the hit romantic drama of the same name, which marked Jackie Shroff‘s debut in 1983. Sooraj even received many awards for the same. However, post that, his professional life has taken a downward plunge. Credit that to his involvement in late actress and his girlfriend Jiah Khan’s death, and Sooraj was in the news, but not for good reasons.

And now, Sooraj is going to be back, after a gap of three years. But this time, the mentor is not Salman Khan as in his debut film, rather it’s Sanjay Dutt who has stepped into those shoes. The two will be playing father-son in the movie.

The film which is produced under Dutt’s banner is based on a complex relationship between a father and son, amidst a political backdrop. The film is all set to hit the floor in the latter half of the year as currently, Sanjay Dutt is busy juggling between multiple projects.

According to sources, Sanjay was keen on having his good friend Jackie Shroff’s son Tiger Shroff on board as his reel son but the ‘Baaghi 2’ actor didn’t show any interest in the offer. Meanwhile, the makers were hunting for a young face. If sources are to be believed, when Sooraj’s father Aditya Pancholi came to know about Sanjay’s hunt he approached his ‘Aatish’ co-star and requested him to cast Sooraj in the film as the ‘Hero’ actor has been on the film hunt since his debut. And the rest is history.

Looks like after a hiatus, Sooraj is going to make a smashing comeback.

Sooraj also took to Instagram and announced his next project starring Katrina Kaif‘s sister Isabelle Kaif, directed by Stanley D’Çosta.

Well looks like Sooraj is back in the race and we are quite excited about the news. (Also Read: Not Sanjay Dutt but Anil Kapoor to romance Madhuri?)
