It is very rare that actor Salman Khan allows any co-star to overshadow him while playing the male lead in his projects. And for once, the superstar, far from being insecure or angry, is loving the fact that, a co-star, that too, a child actor, has managed to take away the focus from him in his latest release ‘Bajrangi Bhaijaan’.
The cute and lovable Harshaali Malhotra, who is seen essaying the character of speech-impaired Pakistani girl named Shahida in the movie, has won over the hearts of the young and old alike with her innocent looks and ever smiling face. While Harshaali was forced to emote only with her expressions as per the demands of the script, the cute girl is very much talkative in her real life, as per the claims of her mother.
Harshaali’s mother Kajal Malhotra was in a state of disbelief after getting a call from casting director Mukesh Chhabra about Harshaali having been selected for a Salman Khan starrer. However, the casting director was initially skeptical about the child actor being able to remain silent during the shoot as she would be seen talking non-stop on the sets. His fears were laid to rest after Harshaali proved herself to be a performer par excellence.
