Mumbai: Filmmaker Mahesh Bhatt’s son and ‘Bigg Boss 4’ contestant Rahul Bhatt couldn’t have asked for more as the Bhatt Jr. will soon be launched by Salman Khan in an action flick.

Buzz has it that Salman befriended Rahul during his stay at ‘Bigg Boss 4’ and has taken him under his wings. Apparently, Salman has also started advising Rahul on his life and career.

It is believed that Rahul will be a part of Arbaaz Khan’s ‘Dabangg 2’. For now, Salman feels that Rahul should get rid of his brawny looks which don’t go with his vulnerable face.

Talking to a daily on his being launched by Salman, Rahul said, “Yes, Salmanbhai is working on something for me. I trust him completely. He says action and emotion are my forte. I believe that. We`re both on the same page. And that`s a relief.”

“I`ve waited long enough. I went into ‘Bigg Boss’ so people would see me as more than just the faceless son of Mahesh Bhatt. It worked,” added Rahul.

Buzz has it that Rahul does not want to work with his own production house. “Neither Bhatt Saab nor his son was comfortable with the idea. It`s just not in the boy`s personality to piggy ride on his father`s name. He is fighting hard to shrug off the label of just being his father`s son,” said a source.

As of now, Bollywood producers have suddenly started vying for Rahul Bhatt. Interestingly, Anurag Basu, who was once to launch Rahul in a Vishesh Film is looking forward to cast Bhatt Jr. in his next.
