Kangana Ranaut will be happy to know that Salman Khan, a messiah for those who want to enter the film industry, is scouting for new talent outside the industry. Through his BeingInTouch app, Salman has introduced an audition column where people who want to try their luck in Bollywood can create profiles and showcase their talent. The entries will be shortlisted by casting director Mukesh Chhabra. Finalized actors will feature in a Salman Khan Production.
On Wednesday, September 21, Salman Khan shared a series of tweets explaining how one can apply. For now, they are looking for a female lead for SKF’s next venture.
For some time now there has been a buzz around the launch of Salman Khan’s brother-in-law, Aayush Sharma. Could this be the casting call for Sharma's project?
Salman Khan has been Godfather to many stars in the industry and the list goes as far as Hrithik Roshan who was an Assistant Director when Salman was shooting Karan-Arjun. Khan also helped Arjun Kapoor with his weight loss program not to mention Ranbir Kapoor and Sonam Kapoor where he agreed to do a cameo in their debut film Saawariya. Sonakshi Sinha's Rajjo still remains her most successful character on screen.
Khan's production house, however, has officially but not too successfully launched two star kids in Sooraj Pancholi and Athiya Shetty with Hero.
What is also important is whether the people who apply through the app will be launched as main leads or will they make the supporting cast around the star kids launched. We will keep you updated.
On the work front, Salman Khan’s next, ‘Tiger Zinda Hai’ opposite Katrina Kaif which is a sequel to ‘Ek Tha Tiger’ (2012), directed by Ali Abbas Zafar is scheduled for a December release. Salman and Katrina would be sharing the screen after five years.
