Telugu superstar Mahesh Babu on Wednesday released the teaser of Hero, which marks the acting debut of his nephew Ashok Galla. “Couldn’t be happier to launch the title of your debut film @AshokGalla_ !! This looks super interesting! The #HERO journey begins! (sic),” Mahesh wrote while unveiling the teaser.
The teaser opens with a train chugging through a desert, which is chased by a horse-riding cowboy. And he later climbs on top of the speeding train to face his rivals. At first glance, one may make the mistake of assuming that the film is a desi cowboy affair. But soon, we see Ashok Galla trying to mimic Heath Ledger’s Joker. Only then it will dawn on the viewers that this film is about a person who is living in a fantasy world manufactured by the Hollywood dream factory.
Judging by the teaser, it is safe to assume that Hero is a movie about the business of making movies. Perhaps, this film pays homage to all the great actors and cinematic moments that inspired Ashok Galla to become an actor.
