Salman Khan has become launch pad for fresh faces in Bollywood. After launching Sooraj Pancholi with Hero, brother-in-law Aayush Sharma (Arpita Khan’s husband) with Loveyatri and friend's son Zaheer Iqbal with Notebook, the superstar is all set to give a platform to his personal bodyguard Shera's son Tiger. The actor recently made this revelation in an interview with Bombay Times.
He said that Shera's son Tiger is currently being groomed and he will make his acting debut as soon as there is some suitable script for him. Salman said that Tiger is being approached by many producers and directors. ''Shera’s son Tiger is being groomed right now and he’s already being considered by so many producers and directors. Shera feels I will be the best judge of a script for his son, so I am now sifting through scripts. I am yet to find something worthy,'' Salman said.
For unversed, Tiger has worked as an assistant director with Ali Abbas Zafar in 2016 blockbuster Sultan. This clearly reveals that Tiger had his aim set as he started picking up tricks of the trade quite long back.
Coming back to Salman, the actor is quite proud to launch newcomers. He says that he will continue to bring fresh talent in the industry as he too was launched by someone. ''I will continue to back more kids for as long as I can. Why? Because I was also launched at some point and I think the industry can do with some more fresh talent,” he said.
Talking about Sooraj, Aayush and Zaheer, Salman said that he wants all the three actors to do a 'super dhamaal' film. ''Sooraj, Aayush and Zaheer chill together at Galaxy. They are always together and stand by each other at all times. They’re happy for one another — no khunnas, no jealousy. I wish it stays that way,'' he said.
