After launching a series of newbies which includes raw talent out of nowhere to star kids, Salman Khan has played the Godfather of many. Daisy Shah, Sonakshi Sinha, Aayush Sharma, Sooraj Pancholi, Athiya Shetty among others stepped in Bollywood as the superstar gave them big break under his home banner Salman Khan films.
And now, after them, Salman Khan is all set to launch another star kid in the world of films and it’s none other than Pranutan Bahl, daughter of famous Bollywood and TV actor Monish Bahl. Yes, you read it right. Salman Khan will be launching this newbie in one of the films under his home banner. For those who are not aware, Pranutan is the granddaughter of veteran Bollywood actress Nutan.
Pranutan will be starred opposite newbie actor Zaheer Iqbal. For all those who are unaware, Zaheer Iqbal is the son of Iqbal Ratansi, who is also an old acquaintance of Salman. Salman had made an announcement of launching Zaheer in the films earlier on his social media account.
Salman is very excited and happy that he is mentoring the legendary actress Nutan’s granddaughter. The superstar feels Pranutan has a great legacy. I can assure you that she will make everyone proud.
Reportedly, the film’s director Nitin Kakkar had auditioned over 100 newbie actress for the role but none of them suited for it. But one day, he got a few glimpses of Pranutan on the social media and that’s when he decided to zero her for the film. He then shared her photographs with Salman and he was impressed.
Film critic Taran Adarsh introduced Monish’s daughter to the world and also made an announcement of her debut project. He tweeted, “Nutan’s granddaughter… Mohnish Bahl’s daughter… Meet Salman Khan’s new discovery… Pranutan Bahl to pair opposite newcomer Zaheer Iqbal… Produced by Salman Khan Films, Murad Khetani and Ashwin Varde… Directed by Nitin Kakkar… Will be shot in Kashmir entirely.”
