Zaheer Iqbal On Link-Up Rumours With Sonakshi Sinha Despite Dating Someone Else

Mohnish Singh |Apr 14, 2020

Zaheer Iqbal is a protégé of superstar Salman Khan, who made his acting debut with Notebook, produced by Salman Khan Films.

Zaheer Iqbal hit the headlines several times in 2019 – sometimes for his debut with romantic drama Notebook and other times for link-up rumours with Dabangg (2010) girl Sonakshi Sinha. Last year, the rumour mill went into overdrive suggesting that Zaheer Iqbal and Sonakshi Sinha were seeing each other. The news surprised almost everyone, including the two actors.

Now, in an interview with a publication, Zaheer Iqbal has finally opened up about how he and her friend Sonakshi reacted to their link-up rumours in the media. The young actor said that they laughed after reading the dating rumours, adding that it was his first rumour so he did not know how to react to it.

The actor went on to add that the speculation was mere a product of someone’s overactive imagination after seeing them hanging out together. He said that he and Sonakshi chill together and someone must have seen that and might have started the rumour.

Interestingly, when rumours of his link-up with Sonakshi were doing the rounds, the actor was already in a relationship with someone else. He revealed that on the day that the news about their link-up came out, they messaged each other after getting a notification on Google Alerts. He was dating someone no one knew and it became a bit awkward between him and Sonakshi as the latter knew who he was dating then.

Zaheer Iqbal made his acting debut with Salman Khan Films’ Notebook, which also marked the acting debut of seasoned actor Mohnish Bahl’s daughter Pranutan Bahl. The movie, directed by Nitin Kakkar, garnered mixed reviews from critics and failed to do commercially well at the box-office.
