Actress Anita Hassanandani, who is currently seen in the show Yeh Hai Mohabbatein, has been roped in for the movie remake of Subhash Ghai's Hero.
While the actress confirmed the news, she refrained from divulging details about her role and the movie, which is being produced by actor Salman Khan. The Dabangg star will also feature in the movie.
"Yes, it's true. It's produced by Salman and directed by Nikhil Advani. It should release sometime next year. It's an exciting role, very unlike what I play in Yeh Hai Mohabbatein. So yes, I am experimenting, taking up interesting work and working with great people," she said in a statement.
The film is said to be a modernised form of the 1983 film, in which Jackie Shroff and Meenakshi Seshadri played the leads.
The remake will mark the Bollywood debut of actor Aditya Pancholi's son Sooraj and Suniel Shetty's daughter Athiya.
Anita was earlier seen in films like Kucch To Hai, Yeh Dil and Koi Aap Sa.
In Yeh Hai Mohabbatein, Anita essays the role of Shagun.
