In 1997, Govinda became Hero No. 1 with David Dhawan’s comic caper. It’s a title that has gained iconic status over the years. 25 years after the film, it’s time for Tiger Shroff to be Hero No. 1 as the actor has come on board director, Jagan Shakti’s next, titled Hero No. 1, produced by Vashu and Jackky Bhagnani. It’s a big-budget action-packed thriller and is expected to go on floors in 2023.

When is Hero No. 1 going on floors?

“Tiger Shroff, Jackky Bhagnani and Jagan Shakti are looking to create a one of its kind tentpole action thrillers, with the aim to bring heroism back in a big way. And what better title than Hero No. 1 to celebrate cinema the way it’s meant to be,” revealed a source close to the development, adding further that, Jagan has been committed to making a film for Pooja Entertainment, and the script of Hero No.1 is among his most ambitious dreams. “The vision is big, and the team plans to shoot the film internationally in Europe with an international action crew.

Is it a remake of Govinda - David Dhawan comedy?

Before one speculates, the Jagan Shakti-directed Hero No. 1 has nothing to do with the David Dhawan comedy, and the team is merely using the title, as they feel it’s apt for the story in today’s context. Interestingly, back in the 80s, Tiger’s father, Jackie Shroff featured in a film called Hero, and now, it’s Tiger as Hero No. 1. Stay tuned to Pinkvilla for more updates on this big-budget action thriller.
