. Salman Khan, a close friend of Zaheer’s family and the person who gave Sonakshi her big Bollywood break in the action-comedy film ‘Dabbang’ (2010), played the role of Cupid in their love saga.

Zaheer Iqbal made his Bollywood debut with ‘Notebook,’ another Salman Khan production, opposite newcomer Pranutan Bahl. Bahl is the daughter of actor Mohnish Bahl and the granddaughter of legendary actress Nutan. It was during the filming of ‘Notebook’ in 2017 that Salman introduced Sonakshi to Zaheer. Interestingly, Zaheer’s father, Iqbal Ratansi, who has well-established jewellery and real estate businesses, has been a childhood friend of Salman Khan, adding another layer of closeness to this love story.

Sonakshi is currently better known for her impactful role as Fareedan, the main antagonist in the Netflix special ‘Heeramandi,’ directed by celebrated filmmaker Sanjay Leela Bhansali. Despite the critical acclaim she received, she didn’t shy away from experimenting with roles, reflecting her versatility as an actress. Zaheer, meanwhile, has not only been in the limelight for his relationship with Sonakshi but also for his role in the 2022 film ‘Double XL,’ where he played Zorawar Rahmani, a London-based TV line producer. Although ‘Double XL’ faced critical backlash, Zaheer’s performance garnered attention.

As the couple enjoys their newlywed bliss, they have new projects lined up. Sonakshi’s next movie, a horror-comedy titled ‘Kakuda,’ also stars Riteish Deshmukh and Saqib Saleem in leading roles. This film is eagerly awaited by her fans, who are excited to see her in a new genre.
