Salman Khan is doing everything possible to make his production venture Hero a success at the box office. He has offered to sign film tickets sent by fans and that idea seems to be working for the time being. Hero, which has marked the debut of Sooraj Pancholi and Athiya Shetty, has garnered Rs 13.27 crore in two days. Trade analyst Taran Adarsh tweeted about the film's business.

"Thanks to the people who have gone to see 'Hero' and welcomed Sooraj and Athiya in the film world and all those who are going to see it. Lots of respect," Salman wrote on Twitter on Saturday.
