Salman Khan is launching Zaheer Iqbal
When a cat has babies, they are called kittens. When a dog has babies, they are called puppies. What do you call all the people that the Ultimate Godfather of Bollywood launches? GodBachchas? Since his dogs are called MySon and MyJaan, it does not seem that far-fetched that the ‘Selfish’ songwriter would call the people he launches in Bollywood as MyBachchas or GodBachchas.
It now looks as if there is a secret competition going on between Karan Johar and Salman Khan on who can launch the most number of people in Bollywood. While KJo focuses on launching star kids and relaunching Sidharth Malhotra many times, Sallu has focused on launching his chamchas or rather people who are in his circle of friends and those, who are close to him.
Back to the main story. So, this tweet of Zareen Khan’s Godfather made waves earlier today:
At first glance, the kid in that picture looks like the son of Salman’s sister, Alvira. On second glance and after searching around, it turns out that this kid happens to be Zaheer Ratansi, who also goes by the name of Zaheer Iqbal. Zaheer’s dad is Iqbal Ratansi, who according to sources is very close to Salman. It turns out that there have been news on Salman launching him as earlier as 2016.
Zaheer even has his own fan club on Instagram and they posted this picture last year in December:
Here’s how Zaheer looks now:
He gives off more villain-type of vibes than hero vibes, just like Sooraj Pancholi. He also looks a bit like Arya, the Tamil/Telugu film actor:
Ah, well! Who cares, really? Salman doesn’t! Tomorrow, he is going to go, “Zaheer Iqbal mubarak ho, people! Mere liye thoda selfish banjao, people. Accept him!”
