Meet Salman's new heroine

Last updated on: August 10, 2016 19:07 IST

Say hello to Zhu Zhu.

Salman Khan has started work on his next film Tubelight, directed by good friend-cum-filmmaker Kabir Khan.

While reports were doing the rounds that Deepika Padukone or Katrina Kaif would star opposite the Sultan actor, turns out neither of them have been roped in for the film.

Apparently, Khan will romance Chinese actress Zhu Zhu.

Though the makers haven't made any official announcement regarding her casting, going by her recent tweet, it seems Zhu Zhu is all set to make her Bollywood debut.

The singer-actress tweeted, 'On top of the palace with Mr #Salmankhan @Leh Ladakh.'

So now that Being Human star has found her leading lady, here's a closer look at his newest co-star.

Guess the makers of Tubelight want to maintain some secrecy around their leading lady.
