The list of actors and actresses that superstar Salman Khan has launched in Bollywood is endless. From Sneha Ullal to Zareen Khan and Sonakshi Sinha to Sooraj Pancholi, dozens of actors, who are earning their bread and butter through the movies, have been Khan’s discovery. After introducing brother-in-law, Aayush Sharma, with the upcoming film ‘Loveratri’, Salman Khan is set to launch another young actor, Zaheer Iqbal, under his home banner, Salman Khan Films.
Well, if you think that the new lad on the block hails from a film family, then wait. The newcomer does not belong to any family from Bollywood. However, Salman Khan has known his father for a long time now. “Zaheer is made for the movies. He is a fantastic actor and a born star,” Salman said while talking about his new find.
The makers are tight-lipped about a plot and other details on the forthcoming venture, but if insiders are to be believed, the untitled film will be a love story set against the backdrop of Kashmir. Filmmaker Nitin Kakkar, who has previously helmed the award-winning movie ‘Filmistaan’ (2013), will call the shots for Salman Khan’s next production.
Revealing some more details on the project, noted film critic and trade analyst, Taran Adarsh, wrote on his Twitter handle, “Salman Khan launches Zaheer Iqbal… The film is not titled yet… A love story set in Kashmir… Produced by Salman Khan Films, Murad Khetani and Ashwin Varde… Directed by Nitin Kakkar… Shoot begins Sept 2018″.
On Wednesday, Salman had given a hint about the same by sharing an old picture with a kid clung closely to him. Along with the picture, he had tweeted, “Being Launched Tomorrow … KAL dekhte hai yeh ladka AAJ kaise dikhta hai …”
Ready to go on floors in September, the yet-to-be-titled film is being jointly produced by Salman Khan Films, Murad Khetani, and Ashwin Varde. No female lead has been finalized as yet.
