Salman Khan is known to be generous to a fault. The actor, who has given breaks to many in the industry, is now set to launch the grandson of legendary filmmaker Kamaal Amrohi. News is that the actor is producing a movie that will introduce Bilal Amrohi, son of Taajdaar and Neelu Amrohi. An industry source reveals that it’s a high concept low budget project in the space of films like Aamir Khan’s Peepli [Live]. “It’s an interesting story revolving around a journalist and a cameraman.” While more details pertaining to this venture are being kept under wraps, it is learnt that this film will also feature Pulkit Samrat, the young actor who made his debut with Bittoo Boss earlier this year. Salman shares very good relations with the Amrohi family and is believed to be fond of Bilal and his brother, Mashhoor. As for Pulkit, he calls Khan his “mentor” and “elder brother” after he helped promote his debut.
