With Sara Ali Khan, Jhanvi Kapoor, Ahaan Shetty, Ishaan Khattar and Aadar Jain all set to make their Bollywood debut soon, another newcomer is also ready to jump on the bandwagon. Actor, and one of the finest dancers Bollywood has ever seen, Jaaved Jaaferi will soon see another actor in his family joining Bollywood in the form of his son, Meezaan. However, unlike his father, who started off as a dancer in Bollywood to do villain roles at first to then doing lead characters, Meezaan will get a grand launch as a hero in Bollywood, courtesy Sanjay Leela Bhansali.
As per a report in Bombay Times, the auteur film-maker will launch the debutante in one of his productions under his banner, Bhansali Productions. He will be co-producing the movie with Mahaveer Jain. However the movie will be directed by Mangesh Hadawale, who has previously directed Marathi movie Tingyaa and the Nawazuddin Siddiqui starrer Dekh India Circus, that won a lot of awards in the international film festival circuit. So by the looks of it, the yet-untitled movie will be quite different from the usual launchpads star kids get.
Meezaan surely is getting a great start in Bollywood though, since the two starkids that Sanjay Leela Bhansali has launched are quite popular today – Ranbir Kapoor and Sonam Kapoor (with Saawariya). Meezaan has been an assistant director on Bhansali’s Bajirao Mastani and has trained in theatre acting and martial arts. He is also said to have inherited awesome dancing genes from his father, apart from having studied film making from Visual Arts in New York for over 4 years. For this movie, the debutante is said to have auditioned for the role and was chosen based on the talent he displayed.
The rest of the casting details, including the title, the genre as well as the leading lady, is yet to be revealed, so watch this space for more updates about the project.
Meezaan was also recently clicked with Amitabh Bachchan’s granddaughter, Navya Naveli Nanda, while they were on a movie date. However, at that time, the media was not very clear about his identity, as he was busy hiding his face, and therefore was tagged as a mystery guy.
We wish Meezaan all the very best for his Bollywood journey!
