Ace filmmaker Sanjay Leela Bhansali provided launch pads to A-listers like Ranbir Kapoor and Sonam Kapoor with Saawariya. And he will soon do it again. The director is set to launch yet another fresh face in the industry and let us reveal that this one is a little special. We are talking about Sharmin Segal, who is SLB’s niece, his sister Bela Segal’s daughter. The debutante will be launched alongside yet another starkid, who happens to be actor Jaaved Jaaferi's son Mizaan Jaaferi.
The film is reportedly titled Malaal and Sharmin was personally groomed by Bhansali himself to face the silver screen. Moreover, she also signed a three-film deal with Bhansali productions. Well then, it won’t be wrong to say that Bhansali has a lot of faith in his niece. “When I decided to become an actor, what excited me the most was the idea that I would feel emotions and experience experiences I wouldn’t normally have every day. I’m happy that this launch has allowed me to do that, making it a difficult but still fulfilling experience,” Sharmin reportedly said.
The film is said to be based on a romantic tale and is likely to be out in the second half of 2019.
