Zaheer Iqbal, who made his Bollywood debut with Notebook, is rumoured to be dating Sonakshi Sinha for a while now. Recently, in an interview with India Today, Zaheer opened up about his dating rumours and said that he doesn't care about the rumours. The 30-year-old actor added that it's a part and parcel of this industry, and he knew it before joining the film industry. He also revealed the advice Salman Khan gave him before making his debut. For the uninitiated, Zaheer's debut movie was produced by Salman's production house Salman Khan Films.
"Now it has been so long, I don't even care. I am like okay if you think, then you think. Keep thinking. It's good for you. If it makes you happy that I am with her, then it is good for you. Then if it makes you upset, I am sorry. Stop thinking about that," Zaheer Iqbal told India Today.
He added, "But it is a part and parcel of this industry. I knew it way before I joined the industry. I knew that actors go through this because I have a few friends who are a part of this industry. Bhai (Salman) has always told us that aisa bohot log likhenge [people will write], don't pay too much attention to it. So, I really don't pay attention to that," India Today quoted Zaheer Iqbal saying.
Meanwhile, on the work front, Zaheer Iqbal will be next seen in Double XL with Sonakshi Sinha and Huma Qureshi. Also, reports are rife that he will be starring in Salman Khan's upcoming film Kabhi Eid Kabhi Diwali.
