After launching his brother-in-law Aayush Sharma in LoveYatri, which hit the screen last Friday, superstar Salman Khan has given the go-ahead to the team of his next production venture, Notebook, which introduces Zaheer Iqbal, the son of his childhood friend, and Pranutan, the granddaughter of classic Bollywood actress Nutan.

The team is set to start filming the project in Srinagar on Wednesday. The movie will be shot in a one and a half month long start-to-finish schedule. If a source close to the development is to be believed, newcomers Zaheer and Pranutan reached the valley 10 days ago to start their preparations with director Nitin Kakkar.

The source reveals that apart from Zaheer and Pranutan, five Kashmiri kids will also be part of the cast. “Five Kashmiri kids are part of the main cast and they too have been attending workshops with Kakkar. The shoot will wrap up by November-end and the songs will be shot in one go.”

Salman Khan may not visit the sets of the movie in Kashmir due to his tight schedule. “But he has spoken to both Zaheer and Pranutan before they left for the Valley. He was personally overseeing Zaheer’s training for the last few months and has given him the nickname Zahero,” adds the source.
