Salman Khan roots for Arjun Kapoor's 'Ishaqzaade'
The promotion drive of Arjun Kapoor’s debut movie Ishaqzaade has got a shot in the arm with the strong support of ‘Dabangg’ star, Salman Khan. This is the second time that the film produced under the Yash Raj Banner has got a major backing from a celebrity.
Previously, Priyanka Chopra had tweeted about the film and commended her cousin, Parineeti Chopra’s efforts in the film. The movie sums up the relationship between Arjun and Parineeti who play two fiery characters from a rural setting. Eventually, they fall in love amidst a backdrop of gang wars and gunfights. It is speculated that Salman could be rooting for Arjun because the debutant was dating his sister Arpita Khan in the recent past.
Another important fact could be the possibility that Arjun was groomed by Salman to take up acting. Arjun has played directorial assistant to his producer father, Boney Kapoor and has even assisted Karan Johar in Kal Ho Na Ho. He was planning to become a director and was advised by Salman to take up acting. Salman believed that there was an ‘actor in him’ and thus Arjun studied acting.
Salman is known for his supportive nature and has been in overdrive promoting a series of actresses including Katrina Kaif, Zarine Khan and Sonakshi Sinha in Bollywood. Salman was the one who suggested Sonakshi to leave designing and take up acting. With Arjun, he seems to break tradition for now. Guess, now we could see a series of new actors promoted by the Khan!
