Despite the pre-release hype, Salman Khan and Nikhil Advani’s ‘Hero’ (2015) failed to live up to the Box Office expectations. ��While Khan, as producer, is still content with how the film fared, he accepts that he should have been a more hands-on producer.
Speaking to��DNA India, Khan said, “I should have been overseeing it from before… because small, small things have been missed. ��It’s nobody’s fault though. If it’s anybody’s, it’s mine because I had taken the responsibility towards Sooraj and Athiya. ��I should have been a hands-on producer, but I left it to Nikhil, who is good. ��However, in trying to make the film look good, he lost that earthy charm. ��The visuals overtook the emotions. ��But we will definitely work (together) again.”
Khan feels “the film has done well for itself”, even though it may not have set the Box Office on fire, as his aim was to launch the two star-kids: Sooraj Pancholi and Athiya Shetty, which he feels has been done very successfully.
