Actor Javed Jaaferi’s son Meezaan is all set to make debut with Malaal, opposite Sanjay Leela Bhansali’s niece Sharmin Segal. The aspiring actor was once rumoured to be dating Amitabh Bachchan’s granddaughter and Shweta Nanda’s daughter, Navya Naveli.
On being asked about the same, Meezaan told Mumbai Mirror in an interview, “We are from the same friends’ circle, she’s my sister’s bestie and a really good friend. I’m not in a relationship with anyone.”
He also revealed how he landed the role in Malaal, even before Sanjay knew about his father. He said, “I had met my co-star Sharmin back in 2011 and since then we have been best friends. She was working as a costume assistant on Sanjay sir’s Bajirao Mastani. One day Ranveer sir (Singh, leading man of the film) wasn’t available, so when she asked me, I tried out his costumes for the team. That’s when I met Sanjay sir for the first time. At the time he had no idea who my father was, yet told me that he wanted to launch me.”
