Bollywood's Mentor No.1, superstar Salman Khan, has turned godfather again. After helping the careers of Katrina Kaif, Jacqueline Fernandez, Sneha Ullal, Daisy Shah, Armaan kohli, Arjun Kapoor and Hrithik Roshan, or launching Sonakshi Sinha, Aayush Sharma, Sooraj Pancholi, Athiya Shetty and many others, Salman Khan is all set to launch his good friend Mohnish Behl's daughter Pranutan Bahl. The girl's mother is former Bollywood actress Ekta Sohini.
BollywoodHungama reports that Salman Khan has turned mentor again with the launch of his costar Mohnish Behl's daughter Pranutan, the granddaughter of yesteryear's iconic actress, the late Nutan. The 25-year-old Pranutan is named after her famous grandmother and looks like her in some pictures that went viral recently. A video of F The Couch shows her talking about how she bagged a Tropicana digital advertisement by applying on the casting agency's website.
Here are the details of the Pranutan Bahl film
Salman Khan will co-produce the film under his banner Salman Khan Films (SKF) that also launched Sooraj Pancholi and Athiya Shetty in Hero.
Mohnish Behl starred with Salman Khan in his debut Maine Pyar Kiya, directed by Sooraj Barjatya, in which Behl was seen in an impressive negative role. Salman Khan and Mohnish Behl starred together in many other films, including Hum Aapke Hain Koun..! and Hum Saath Saath Hain - both Rajshri Films productions like Maine Pyar Kiya - where he played the doting older brother to Salman Khan.
Reports say Mohnish Behl was one of the people who recommended Salman Khan for Maine Pyar Kiya, which established Salman as a leading star. It looks like Salman Khan is just returning the favour.
Apart from films, Mohnish Behl also ventured into acting in Indian television, with his last successful stint being Kuch Toh Log Kahenge opposite Kritika Kamra. He had left the show midway, to be replaced by Sharad Kelkar.
One thing is sure, as Salman Khan grows from one blockbuster to another, his heart gives way for more and more people to come under his wings. He loves to take charge of the careers of newcomers in the industry, and also old friends like Armaan Kohli who he recommended for a stint on his reality show Bigg Boss and also gave him a role in his film Prem Ratan Dhan Payo.
