Superstar Salman Khan, who is presently shooting for his next film Bharat, is set to add yet another name to the list of actors he has launched in Bollywood over the years. And the fresh talent Khan has decided to provide a launch pad to is Ashwami, the daughter of well-known actor-filmmaker Mahesh Manjrekar.

Confirming the news, Manjrekar told a popular tabloid, “Yes, Salman is launching my daughter. It will happen in some time. We will cross the bridge when we get to it.”

Mahesh and Salman have been friends for years now. They have even worked together on many successful films such as Ready (2011), Bodyguard (2011) and Dabangg (2010) and Dabangg 2 (2012).

Praising the superstar, Manjrekar said, “We have always bonded well. Salman is the most rooted person I have come across, a complete middle-class man in his head. He knows that I am not in awe of him, and that makes our bond special.”

Salman Khan is also launching yesteryear actress Nutan’s granddaughter Pranutan alongside debutant Zaheer Iqbal in the forthcoming film Notebook. The movie, helmed by Nitin Kakkar, releases next year.
