Saqib Saleem, the lead from “Mujhse Fraandship Karoge,” has quite the story to tell of his acting career.
Saleem’s father runs a successful restaurant business called Sallel’s with almost 14 outlets! Never the studious type, the Delhi resident helped his father run the family business for almost 8 months before he realized his dream of acting. Lucky for him Papa Saleem was supportive and told him to take a year off and give acting a serious chance.
Soon Saleem came to Mumbai from Delhi and auditioned with YRF for about 6 months while managing to do a few ads with Pepsi, Tata Docomo, KFC, Sprite and Bar One. He was so driven by his new-found passion for acting that he told his dad one day while driving by the YRF office that his first movie would be a Yash Raj film for sure! Looks like his dream came true! Ironically he plays a foodie in the film!
