How did Hero happen?
We were shooting for Ek Tha Tiger in Turkey and it was the night of 9th November which also happens to be my birthday. I was fast asleep in my room and at three in the morning Salman sir came and dragged me to his room. He first wished me happy birthday and then said, 'Sooraj I have a gift for you. I want you to do a film for my production house Salman Khan films. Would you like to do it?' I said,'Ofcourse sir'. On returning to Mumbai, Salman sir asked to start training and wait for his call. I waited for almost one and half years. Finally, he called one day and said,'Sooraj, I have got a script. It's a remake of Hero. Are you interested? I said yes and that is how Hero happened.

A lot of star kids like Varun Dhawan and Tiger Shroff have made their mark in the industry. How do you view the competition?
I see it as healthy competition. If there is no competition, how will we go ahead? Varun will be a big star in future. Tiger has just set his foot in and he is great as well. In real life, we all are like brothers. I don't think anyone wants to eat anyone else's work. There is enough work for everyone here.
