Karan Johar turns mentor for Saqib Saleem

Mumbai, Feb 25 (IANS) Filmmaker Karan Johar was so impressed with Saqib Saleem's work that he has not only singed him for his banner but also mentored him in how to face media.

Saqib will soon be seen in "Mere Dad Ki Maruti" (MDKM), a forthcoming venture of Y-Films, an arm of Yash Raj Films (YRF).

The 'professional' Raj Babbar

Raj Babbar is not only a veteran actor but also an active politician and he knows how to manage both the jobs.

He is shooting for Prerna Wadhawan's "Ishqeria". For the film, he had to shuttle between Mumbai and Meghalaya.

"It's a learning experience to work with him. He is such a senior actor and yet very professional and humble. He knew the dates are clashing with his political work in Meghalaya but didn't request us to change the dates," said Wadhawan in a statement.

"Ishqeria", a romantic comedy, is being shot in Mumbai and also features Neil Nitin Mukesh and Richa Chadda.

The veteran actor plays Neil's father in the film that is expected to release in the summer this year.
