On asking Vikas Kapoor, the producer of the film, about the sudden change in the title of the film he says,” Since, every truck of India has got Mera Bharat Mahan written at the back and that was our concept. However, then we realized that the title Mera Bharat Mahan gave an impression of a patriotic film which was not true so, that is only reason to change the title to Heroes. It’s a youth film based on a road trip and not patriotism.”
Heroes is a story of two boys who start their road trip from Delhi to Chandigarh and then Manali to Ladhakh. On their journey these boys come across certain real life characters played by Salman, Preity, Sohail, Sunny and Bobby on this road trip and these people have such an affect that the seed of heroism blooms within them. So, basically the story is about this drastic change in the lives of these two boys.
Tulip Joshi has opted out of the film due to date problems and has been replaced by Amrita Arora. Sajid and Monty have composed the music for the film.
The next shooting schedule of Heroes starts from Nov 12 and the film is expected to release on May 1, 2008.
