Sooraj Pancholi turned emotional at the trailer launch of his debut film ‘Hero’. The aspiring actor apparently came into the field thanks to his producer Salman Khan. Sooraj said, “I never wanted to be an actor until I met Salman sir. I was at a class and he called me at Yash Raj Films (YRF). I did not go after which Arpita called me and said that Bhai is calling you. Hence when I went to YRF, Salman sir told me to work with Kabir sir (director Kabir Khan) in ‘Ek Tha Tiger’. He blessed me and things moved ahead.” Sooraj became Kabir’s assistant director for the film and the rest, as we all know, is history.
