New Delhi: According to media reports, Salman Khan’s niece Alizeh Agnihotri will make her Bollywood debut with Avnish Barjatya’s yet-to-be-titled film. Avnish is Sooraj Barjatya’s son, who will be making his directorial debut with the forthcoming film. The reports suggest that Sunny Deol’s younger son, Rajvir Deol, has been roped in as the leading man. However, an official announcement is awaited. The film is reported to be based on the parallels of Ayan Mukerji’s 2013 film Yeh Jawaani Hai Deewani starring Ranbir Kapoor and Deepika Padukone in main roles. Also, several young actors have been roped in for the film’s cast.
Alizeh’s Bollywood plans were revealed by her father and producer Atul Agnihotri in an interview earlier. Back in 2019, when the speculations of his daughter making a debut with Salman’s Dabangg 3 started rising, he cleared the air by saying that this is not the right time and he hopes his daughter is able to use her learnings from the family in her work. He was quoted as saying, “It is too early to talk about it. My only desire as a father is that she should be prepared, give her best and have fun doing the film. My children have seen their family in the film business so they have seen our ups and downs so they know what the package is all about, they know the dynamics. I hope they encash that.”
Talking about Rajvir Deol, his elder brother Karan Deol has already made his debut in the industry. Karan debut film was Pal Pal Dil Ke Paas. But unfortunately, the film failed to make an impression.
