Usually a Salman Khan film is dominated by the star himself but it seems in his latest film BAJRANGI BHAIJAAN, the DABANGG actor has taken a backseat and the film is overpowered by the cute little baby ‘Munni’, who has taken the national by storm by her histrionics and is being looked upon as the next big star of Bollywood!
Kareena Kapoor has termed the girl as ‘Diva’ and acknowledged that she is truly the ‘Real Star’ of the movie!
In fact even Salman Khan himself was sure about the tiny tots’ exceptional performance hence instead of opening BAJRANGI BHAIJAAN’s teaser with himself (as he generally does) he cleverly introduced the girl in his teaser, which had created a flutter and now after the movie is released the ‘little wonder’ has literally become the talk of the nation.
Actor Aamir Khan too was left dumbfounded by her performance and said, “I was amazed by the little girl’s performance. She is mute in the film yet without dialogue she has left an incredible mark in the film. I think film director Kabir Khan and Salman Khan, both deserve kudos for hunting such an exceptional talent.”
So who is the ‘little angle’ Munni? Well her real name is Harshali Malhotra and she hails from Delhi.
Born on June 3, 2008, the 7-years-old Harshaali is a budding talent who has to her credit multiple big brand TV commercials like Pears, Fair & Lovely and has done many print advisements like Horlicks, HDFC Bank and Apollo Tires.
Kabir Khan, the director of the film said, “Salmanbhai wanted a baby, who should not only be cute but should possess the skills to emote. Hence it was a tiresome experience to hunt such a baby. We auditioned over 5000 children eventually finalizing on Harshali because besides be pretty and charming she was exposed to camera thanks to her role in TV serial LAUT AAO TRISHA on Life OK channel.”
Harshaali Malhotra bears an uncanny resemblance with many actresses like baby Katrina Kaif and baby Kareena Kapoor and looking at her versatility it is apparent that Harshaali is sure to become a ‘Diva’ of Bollywood in near future!!!
