Actor Javed Jaaferi’s son Meezaan Jaaferi is all set to make his big screen debut opposite Sanjay Leela Bhansali’s niece Sharmin Segal. The trailer was out last month and it has already created a buzz online. The two new faces of the film received immense appreciation for their on screen performance and considering the film is backed by one of Bollywood’s biggest filmmakers, the expectations are high!
Besides his debut film, Meezaan has been making headlines for his personal life as well. The young actor was rumoured to be dating Amitabh Bachchan’s Granddaughter Navya Naveli. The duo were spotted together on a movie date and ever since the link up rumours started doing the rounds.
However, in an recent interview with Mirror, the aspiring actor cleared the air about the same stating, “We are from the same friends’ circle, she’s my sister’s bestie and a really good friend. I’m not in a relationship with anyone.”
Further the actor continues to add how he bagged the role in Malaal even before SLB knew about his father.“I had met my co-star Sharmin back in 2011 and since then we have been best friends. She was working as a costume assistant on Sanjay sir’s Bajirao Mastani. One day Ranveer sir (Singh, leading man of the film) wasn’t available, so when she asked me, I tried out his costumes for the team. That’s when I met Sanjay sir for the first time. At the time he had no idea who my father was, yet told me that he wanted to launch me,” said Meezaan.
Written and directed by Mangesh Hadawal, Malaal is a story of Shiva and Astha, two very different people from contrasting backgrounds who experience the innocence of love. The film is slated to hit the theatres on July 5, 2019.
