Bollywood Godfather/Entertainment: It’s not every day you meet up with a man who decides to turn around your life and that too, a complete 360 degree.
But Arjun Kapoor and Sooraj Pancholi were lucky enough to have that chance encounter with their godfather that changed their lives forever.
If Bajrangi Bhaijaan actor dared to introduce a face who was embroiled in the Jiah Khan death case as his film’s hero, he pushed a 140kg star kid to lose weight and become a star. That’s Salman Khan for you.
From offering Arjun his personal gym for training to providing Sooraj with a second chance, Salman played the perfect guiding angel for these two actors.
If Arjun and Sooraj’s filmi career got the much-required push from Salman, Sonakshi Sinha and Athiya Shetty were also his discoveries.
In the last seven years, Sonakshi has made her presence felt in film industry with a variety of roles, Athiya, on the other hand, has already begun shooting for her second film Mubarakan.
Three days after her graduation, Ananya has already begun prepping up for her Bollywood dream.
According to a report in Mumbai Mirror, the 18-year-old star kid has set her eyes on Bollywood and got Salman by her side to play the true mentor.
From training with celebrity fitness coach Yasmin Karachiwala to getting her diet monitored by a nutritionist, Ananya has started taking baby steps towards her big screen debut, all thanks to Salman.
However, this is not the only preparation that the 18 year old is busy with. Apart from fitness, Ananya has been taking short term acting classes and dancing classes to prepare for her big Bollywood debut.
Her dad Chunky confirmed the news to the daily and said, “Yes, Ananya wants to be an actress and she had informed me about her decision sometime ago.
Be it Ahaan or Ananya, I want the kids to create their own identity and be a brand in their own right.”
With Ananya joining Salman’s camp, it would be interesting to see if this new star kid on the block is ready to give tough competition to her contemporaries.
