Mukta Arts was born out of a deep-seated passion for storytelling, a commitment to crafting narratives that go beyond entertainment. 'Hero' isn't just a film; it is an emotion that continues to connect with people on a profound level. The grand debut of Jackie Shroff, the mesmerizing choreography by Saroj Khan and the soulful music - each element contributed to the symphony of emotions that the audience experienced."

Jackie Shroff added, "'Hero' holds a special place in my heart, not just because it catapulted me into stardom but because it forged a timeless bond with the audience. Working with Subhashji was like embarking on a cinematic journey where every frame held a piece of magic. Subhashji didn't just direct 'Hero'; he sculpted an emotion, a connection that transcends time. I am eternally grateful to him."

The grand debut of Jackie Shroff, accompanied by the haunting notes of the pre-recorded Gayatri mantra by L.P., creates a unique atmosphere. Saroj Khan's choreographic mastery, Jackie Shroff and Monaco Sheshadri's rise, and Reshma's soulful rendition of 'Lambi Judai' emerge as integral parts of the film's harmonic symphony. Anuradha Paudwal and Manhar Udhas, the musical maestros, weave a chart-topping soundtrack, etching 'Hero' into the hearts of the audience.
