It's not a hidden fact that many in Bollywood owe their careers to Salman Khan. Referred as the godfather, Salman has launched so many aspiring actors in the Hindi film industry. After announcing his brother-in-law Aayush Sharma's Bollywood debut under his banner Salman Khan Films, the superstar is now bringing another newcomer, Zaheer Iqbal, into the film world.
Zaheer doesn't come from any film family, but his father and Salman have known each other for years. The superstar took to Twitter to introduce the newcomer.
Salman wrote: "How these kids grow up so soon... always keep giving your best Zahero no matter what. Stand tall and always bend backwards for those you love and those who love you, Yeh yaad rakhna that the most important thing in life is respect and loyalty." (sic)

Zaheer's maiden Bollywood film will be a love story set in Kashmir. The female lead in the movie will also be a fresh face. The yet to be titled SKF production will go on floors in September this year and will be directed by Nitin Kakkar.
On Wednesday, Salman teased his fans about the special announcement as he shared a throwback picture of him with Zaheer.
“Being Launched Tomorrow … KAL dekhte hai yeh ladka AAJ kaise dikhta hai …(we will see tomorrow how does this boy look today)” read the caption of the photo.
