Sameer Karnik's forthcoming venture 'Heroes' is loosely based on
the 2004 cult classic Diarios De Motocicleta (The Motorcycles Diaries) which in turn is adapted from the journals of Ch' Guevara, the leader of the Cuban Revolution, in which Guevara, recounts adventures he and Alberto Granado, his best friend, had while crossing South America on a motorcycle in the early 1950s.
It is the story of two bosom pals -- Sammy (Sohail Khan
) and Ali (Vatsal Seth). Everything they do, they do together and are highly dependent on each other. While Sammy is an eccentric, high-spirited and has an uncanny knack of finding humor in the weirdest of situations, Ali is quieter and more mature. When the two friends travel a thousand miles to deliver three letters as a part of their film school assignment, little do they know that the journey that they have embarked on will give them a new meaning of life.
During their road trip from Delhi to Chandigarh and then from Manali to Ladakh, Sammy and Ali come across real life characters played by Salman Khan
, Preity Zinta
, Sunny Deol
and Bobby Deol
who leave a life changing impact in these two youngsters' lives.
