Even as Salman Khan's bodyguard's son is prepping to make his Bollywood debut and it looks like the budding actor is already in high demand. According to a report in Spotboye, a South superstar had asked Shera (the bodyguard) to launch his son Tiger opposite his daughter, but he declined the offer after having a talk with Salman.

"It was quite a lucrative deal. Shera even had a word with Salman who opined that Tiger needs to be trained before he takes the big leap," the report quoted a source as saying. Tiger is currently working as an assistant director in Salman's upcoming movie "Sultan" and the superstar apparently has plans to arrange a big launch for him.

"Shera politely declined the offer and conveyed to the Southern biggie that Tiger is not ready yet. He is doing all this, of course, with the hope that when the time comes, Salman will groom him and ensure a grand launch of Tiger," the source added. Several actors consider Salman as their mentor as the "Bajrangi Bhaijaan" star helped many to get a good launch in the industry.

Salman had launched Sooraj Pancholi with his production "Hero" and the young actor also won the "Best Debut" Award in the recently-held 61st Filmfare Awards. Other big stars who were launched by Salman in the industry include Sonakshi Sinha, Zareen Khan and Daisy Shah.
