PEARL RAAH

Mumbai, April 6 - According to a report on a prominent news portal AajTak, London-based teenage NRI model Pearl Raah may possibly be Salman Khan‘s new face for “Dabaang 3“. The Aajtak report states that the 18-year-old Pearl Raah who is a good, close friend of Salman Khan is being mentored and tutored by the Badshah of Bollywood for a forthcoming project.

Meanwhile a report on Just Bollywood, says Salman Khan has a new “friend” in his life? The report goes on to mention that if sources are to be believed, Salman Khan has a new ‘woman’, oops ‘friend’ in his life. And the new friend is none other than 18-year-old, London-born NRI teenager Pearl Raah. It seems the two met when Salman Khan visited London last year and hit off very well. They chatted for hours and it is rumoured that Salman Khan even invited Pearl to have dinner with him. The two have been in constant and daily touch on phone and IM since then.

Says a source close to Pearl Raah, “We knew that she was ‘good friends’ with Salman Khan for the last few months, but we can’t say for sure if it’s a relationship. Salman is a very helpful guy and he spent a long time with Pearl trying to explain to her the nuances of the film industry. Pearl, who has applied for a Masters in Business Administration course from a prominent University in London has plans to shift to Mumbai very soon. Her family is not in favor of shifting to Mumbai, but Pearl seems to have made up her mind. She is all set to storm Bollywood – of course with ‘bhai’ help and blessings. A little birdie told us that Pearl is looking for a flat in Bandra and as usual ‘bhai’ has given her the mobile numbers of all his top real-estate friends.

Pearl for that matter refused to comment. In an interview to a Bollywood Youtube channel, she said Salman is a good friend and they met a couple of times when he was in London, but that's all that is there to the story. When asked about her possible role in Dabaang 3, she quipped, "ask Salman, I am not the right person to speak about Dabaang 3".

The petite and cute model did a photo shoot recently with fashion photographer Jude Fernandes; we bring you some of the exclusive images.
