Salman Khan is set to introduce two newcomers Pranutan Behl and Zaheer Iqbal in a romantic drama film titled 'Notebook' which is set to release on March 29, 2019.
Khan shared a picture of the two posing gracefully and captioned the tweet, "The most beautiful love story has a release date... Notebook hits the cinemas on March 29, 2019. Trailer coming soon." Salman is keen to launch fresh faces as he himself introduced Sooraj Pancholi and Athiya Shetty in 'Hero'.
Khan's recent film 'Loveyatri' introduced Warina Hussain and his brother-in-law Aayush Sharma. This is yet another introduction as Zaheer and Salman Khan's father have been childhood friends.
Speaking on how he got a role in this film Zaheer Iqbal said, "The (acting) keeda had bitten me when I was a child. I used to converse in film dialogues and sway to the beat of Bollywood chartbusters whenever the opportunity presented itself. Salman bhai spotted me dancing at my sister's sangeet and as soon as I got off the stage, he told me,'I am launching you, start training."
Salman Khan Films is bankrolling the film along with Murad Khetani and Ashwin Varde of Cine1 Studios. 'Notebook' is helmed by Nitin Kakkar. Nitin debuted as a director with 'Filmistan', which was moderately successful. This was followed by 'Mitron' in 2018 which didn't do much at the box-office.
