Filmmaker Nikhil Advani, gearing up for the release of his directorial venture Hero, cannot stop praising superstar Salman Khan, who has co-produced the film.

The D Day helmer was on a ‘thank you’ spree on Twitter, praising everyone associated with the film and called the Bajrangi Bhaijaan star his true Hero.

"Thank you @BeingSalmanKhan for making the call and changing my life. You truly are my #Hero," he wrote.

Hero marks the debut of Suniel Shetty’s daughter Athiya and Aditya Pancholi’s son Sooraj Pancoli.

Salman, 49, has been promoting the film extensively along with star kids.

The Kick star was the one to bring Advani on board as the director of the film, which is the remake of 1983 movie of the same name.

Advani and Salman last worked together in 2007 multi-starrer film Salaam-e-Ishq.

Co-produced by Salman Khan Films and Subhash Ghai’s Mukta Arts, Hero will hit theatres on September 11.
