The big news right now is that Salman Khan is launching a handsome and talented newcomer in the film industry – Zaheer Iqbal.
Zaheer doesn’t hail from a film family but his father and Salman have known each other for years. Salman spotted Zaheer at his sister’s wedding function doing a stage performance. He was so impressed with Zaheer’s act that he decided then and there that he would launch this terrific performer into the movies.
Now, the wait has ended as Salman Khan gets ready to launch Zaheer Iqbal into the world of glamour and glitter.
Salman’s banner SKF (Salman Khan Films) is producing the film along with Murad Khetani and Ashwin Varde of Cine1 Studios. The film (yet untitled) will go on floors in September this year and is being directed by the highly acclaimed Nitin Kakkar of Filmistaan fame.
The film is a love story set in Kashmir. The leading lady opposite him will also be a new face and will be finalised in the next few days.
Salman has been personally supervising the training that Zaheer is undergoing for the last few months. In fact, he’s even named him ‘Zahero’.
“Zaheer is made for the movies. He is a fantastic actor and a born star.”
Murad Khetani added:
“Zaheer has an incredible presence in front of the camera.”
Ashwin Varde added:
“Zaheer’s greatest asset is his honesty towards the craft.”
The film’s director Nitin Kakkar is excited about the journey ahead.
“Zaheer’s level of commitment towards his work is great. He will go a very long way.”
Good luck Zaheer!
