MUMBAI — 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 Shetty, and Aditya Pancholi’s son, Sooraj Pancholi.

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

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

Advani and Khan last worked together in the 2007 multi-starrer film “Salaam-e-Ishq.”

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