Salman Khan, who is slated to launch Sooraj Pancholi in the remake of the 1983 hit, Hero, is likely to lend the aspiring actor a helping hand. Sources close to the Pancholi family inform that Salman might organise a press conference in a few days’ time to clear the air over Sooraj’s debut venture.

Aditya Pancholi’s 22-year-old son was granted bail on July 2. He was arrested on June 10 for allegedly abetting the suicide of actor Jiah Khan. “There have been lots of conflicting reports concerning Hero’s remake, which also stars Suniel Shetty’s daughter Athiya. It is being co-produced by Salman. Now that Sooraj has been given a clean chit by the court, Salman is considering clarifying things officially with the media,” says an insider.

“In all likelihood, he’ll go ahead with the conference, but things are yet to be confirmed since he is busy shooting for Mental in Hyderabad.” 

A few days ago, Subhash Ghai, the co-producer of the remake, said in a report that the makers “have not yet confirmed Sooraj or Athiya” for the film. He also told HT Café that “Salman will take the final call on this”.

Though Salman has remained tight-lipped about this case so far, on June 2, he tweeted saying, “Arre haan sooooo happy that sooraj got bail (sic)."

When contacted, Aditya says, “If he (Salman) is planning a press meet, you guys (media) will get to know. I can’t say anything about it.
