Check out: Sanjay Dutt, Ajay Devgn and Zarine Khan in Ready (2011) *New*
Salman Khan has still not given up on his protégée Zarine Khan. After her far-from-satisfying debut in Veer the superstar has been recommending her to his favourite directors. Last week, he convinced Anees Bazmee to let Zarine make a cameo appearance in Ready. Zarine flew down to Bangkok for the same.
Of late, after Dabangg, Salman has grown really close to his brother Arbaaz. Not surprisingly, Arbaaz flew to Bangkok on Friday on his Bade Bhai's insistence to shoot a cameo in Anees Bazmee's Ready. Accompanying Arbaaz was Salman's Veer co-star Zarine Khan.
Arbaaz and Zarine shot with Salman in Pattaya on Friday evening.
Director Anees Bazmee confirms, "It's a small scene. We needed Arbaaz and Zarine. Salman's equation with them made it easy for us to get them to agree to do the scene."
Salman loves promoting new talent and aggressively pushes them until they find their level. Apparently, Anees had another actress in mind for the cameo. It was on Salman's insistence that Zarine got the part. Apparently, Anees initially begged off arguing the role was too brief to do justice to the heroine of Veer.
"But Salman felt Zarine is being left behind for no fault of hers. Last year he had equal faith in both his protégées Sonakshi Sinha and Zarine Khan. Salman somehow feels responsible for Zarine's career not taking off. He is trying to get her into his new projects," says a source.
Apparently, Salman has also spoken to his buddy Sajid Nadiadwala about a role for Zarine in Kick which starts in the middle of the year.
It is no surprise that Anees Bazmee also got Ajay Devgn, Sanjay Dutt and Kangna Ranaut to make cameo appearances in Ready.
Anees has never shied away from getting his friends to appear in his films. The scene in Ready features Sanjay Dutt, Ajay Devgn and Kangna Ranaut who were shooting in Bangkok for Rascals.
Anees says the three actors agreed to feature in a brief sequence because of their relations with Anees and Salman. "I've worked with Ajay Devgn in my earlier film Deewangee and Sanjay Dutt and Kangna in No Problem. Salman is also very friendly with them."
Anees insists the scene was not written to accommodate the stars from Rascals. "We had a scene where actors were needed. We didn't write the scene for them."
