Sooraj and Athiya, who star in Hero have a 'good' debut weekend, thanks to a Sunday acquitted with honours. Taran Adarsh had forecast escalated figures for the movie, which made Rs 6.85 crores on its opening day and Rs 6.62 crores on Saturday. Hero also stars Tigmanshu Dhulia, Kader Khan, Sooraj's father Aditya Pancholi and Sharad Kelkar
The opening day collection of the movie was not too impressive either, with a score of Rs 6.85 crores, while it was Rs 6.62 crores on Saturday. The newcomers who star in the movie, have been supported by producer Salman Khan who took active part in the movie's promotion and had also turned mentor for the star kids
The figure, though very good for a film starring newcomers, is not as spectacular considering the aggressive promotions and marketing strategies deployed by its producer Salman Khan who has served as a 'mentor' to the debutants. Sooraj is the son of actor couple Aditya Pancholi and Zarina Wahab, while Athiya is the daughter of actor Suniel Shetty and Mana.
Varun Dhawan's 'hero-giri' in Main Tera Hero earned the entertainer a good opening of Rs 6.60 crores net on its first day of release in the country.
