Mumbai: Salman Khan’s list of protégé has a new addition. After launching Sonakshi Sinha in the 2010 blockbuster ‘Dabangg’, Salman seems to be pretty concerned about swimsuit model Angela Johnson’s Bollywood career.
The hunk of an actor is making sure that Ranbir’s alleged former girl has a smooth journey in Bollywood at least during the initial stages.
Reportedly, Salman’s brother Sohail has signed Angela opposite Khan in ‘Sher Khan’. And if the latest buzz that is doing rounds is to be believed, the pretty girl has bagged another project with Salman Khan titled ‘Kick’.
Talking to DNA, a source said, “Salman really thinks that Angela has it in her to make it big in Bollywood.”
“He only goes by what the audiences would want to see on screen. He’s even aware of how hard Angela’s been working on her Hindi diction and has been encouraging her as much as possible,” another source said.
But insiders believe that Salman is going out of his way to help Angela.
“Salman is known to shower films on his female friends who he takes under his wing to launch their Bollywood careers, but it is rare for him to push a newcomer this far. In fact, apart from Katrina (Kaif) he is till date yet to sign any of his finds including Zareen (Khan) and even Sonakshi (Sinha) as the lead opposite him again. So signing Angela for two films already says a lot about the faith he has in her,” said an insider.
