Looks like Salman Khan has been a Godfather for new-comers in B-town. After finding pretty looking Warina Hussain opposite his brother-in-law Aayush Sharma in 'Loveratri', Salman has yet another fresh face and it is Zaheer Iqbal.
Interestingly, Zaheer isn't from a film background and is a son of Salman's father's close friend. Salman spotted him at his sister's wedding doing during a dance performance and since then 'Bajrangi Bhaijaan' star decided to give him a break.
The 52-year-old star is all set to launch him on the silver-screen in a love story set in the backdrop of Kashmir. Salman's banner SKF (Salman Khan Films) is producing the film along with Murad Khetani and Ashwin Varde of Cine1 Studios. This yet-to-be-titled film will go on floors in September this year and will be directed by 'Filmistaan' (2013) fame director Nitin Kakkar.
Salman Khan is personally training Zaheer and even did his photo-shoot. Talking about his ability Salman said, "Zaheer is made for the movies. He is a fantastic actor and a born star."
The film's producers are equally confident. "Zaheer is here to stay for the long run," says Murad Khetani, while Ashwin Varde adds,"His greatest asset is his honesty and that shows on screen."
Director Nitin Kakkar, who is looking forward to the journey ahead, shares, "Zaheer's level of commitment towards his work is great. He will go a long way."
