The Hawaa Hawaai actor is being compared with two big stalwarts of Indian cinema – Aamir and SRK. Saqib is only happy that such parallels are drawn!
Saqib Saleem is certainly one of the most promising talents we have in the industry. The 26-year-old actor sparkled in his debut movie Mujhse Fraaandship Karoge. Later he only refined his acting prowess in movies such as Mere Dad Ki Maruti co starring Ram Kapoor and Rhea Chakraborty as well as in Bombay Talkies.
And now while the talented dude is looking forward to the release of his next Hawaa Hawaai, Saquib is being compared with Aamir Khan and Bollywood’s ultimate Baadshah of B-town Shahrukh Khan.
While Mr Perfectionist played a teacher in Taare Zameen Par, SRK essayed the role of a hockey coach in Chak De India. And soon, Saqib will be seen as a skating coach in his forthcoming film Hawaa Hawaai. “If people make such a comparison, why should I have a problem? I have only done four films and if I am compared to someone great like him (Aamir Khan), it’s a good thing for me,” said Saquib in an interview.
Directed by Amole Gupte, Hawaa Hawaai will also star Gupte’s son Partho ( of Stanley Ka Dabba fame)in the role of a young boy who aspires to become a skating champion.
