Kalank fame ‘Sonakshi Sinha’ is making waves for her closeness with Notebook actor ‘Zaheer Iqbal’ these days. According to TOI report, dating rumours of Sonakshi and Zaheer are making buzz since January. The alleged couple is often spotted together but their affair seem to be staged for the sake of promotion and publicity.
For the uninitiated, Zaheer is the son of Salman Khan’s close buddy. Thus, Race 3 actor mentored Zaheer and launched him in Bollywood. On the other hand, Sonakshi was also launched by Salman in ‘Dabangg’. Thus, a common link might have lead to friendship between them. Besides joint public appearances, Zaheer and Sonakshi also like and comment on each other posts on Instagram.A source reported as mentioned in TOI report: “Sonakshi is just being nice and sweet to a newcomer who happens to be launched by Salman Khan, just like she was. Zaheer is moving in the same circle these days as Salman. The next thing she knows she’s being linked with this newcomer. This is probably the publicity machinery at work. We normally have newcomers working together in their first film being linked together for publicity. But this time, they chose to deflect the publicity to an outside source. But Sonakshi isn’t taking this lying down.”
On the work front, Sonakshi was last seen in multi-starrer film ‘Kalank’ which is getting mixed response at the box office. On the other hand, Zaheer’s debut film ‘Notebook’ tanked at the box office.
