The��release of his Bollywood debut, ‘Hero’, is just around the corner, but Sooraj Pancholi has been making headlines since before signing the movie. ��Having been wrapped��in controversies post his girlfriend Jiah Khan’s suicide in 2013, Pancholi has broken his silence and gone on record to speak��about the same.
On being questioned about Khan’s suicide and the controversies which followed, Pancholi told��The Indian Express, “It was in nobody’s control. ��People didn’t realise that I had lost someone. ��I lost my girlfriend (Jiah) who I was seeing for the past few months and I was really upset. ��But I think it was destiny… I don’t think of it as a lesson because I have not committed any mistake.”
Pancholi is grateful to superstar Salman Khan for having supported him through the tough times and launching him as a leading actor with ‘Hero’.
“The reason I love him (Salman Khan) so much is because if it hadn’t been for him or his support, I would still be struggling… this industry throws you away during such times. ��He hasn’t done that and has kept me close to his heart,” the young actor added.
‘Hero’ is a remake of Subhash Ghai’s classic of the same name. ��The remake has been produced by Salman Khan Films and directed by Nikhil Advani. ��Suniel Shetty’s daughter, Athiya Shetty, also makes her debut with the film which releases on September 11th.
