Everything we know about Salman Khan's niece Alizeh Agnihotri's debut
Salman Khan's niece, Alizeh Agnihotri is all set for her Bollywood debut. Daughter of Atul and Alvira Khan Agnihotri, Agnihotri has reportedly started shooting for her debut project. According to a report in Pinkvilla, the shooting began after Khan and her parents felt that she was ready to set into the business. Here's everything we know about Agnihotri's film debut.
Agnihotri's debut will be helmed by 'Jamtara' director
Agnihotri will be marking her Bollywood debut with National Award-winning director Soumendra Padhi, famously known for directing Budhia Singh: Born to Run. Padhi has also directed the popular Netflix web series Jamtara: Sabka Number Ayega which gained critical appreciation. As per reports, instead of a glamorous character, Agnihotri has picked an off-beat topic for her debut in the Hindi film industry.
Agnihotri will feature alongside an ensemble cast
The untitled debut of Agnihotri will be backed by Khan, Atul and Alvira, and Nikhil Namit. She will be seen alongside an ensemble cast. While not many details have been revealed yet, an old ET report quoted Padhi saying, "We will announce the film after the rest of the cast is locked in. That is when we'll be ready to go on [the] floor."
Agnihotri received training from late choreographer Saroj Khan
Agnihotri underwent dance lessons to prepare for her movie debut, even training under the late choreographer, Saroj Khan. When Khan died in July 2020, Agnihotri shared a picture on Instagram with the dance maestro, recalling an episode when she told Khan how she could not do justice to Khan's choreography and didn't feel confident. To this, Khan had assured her, "Anybody can be confident."
