Bollywood Superstar Salman Khan Announces New York Film Academy Alum Warina Hussain Will Star in Loveratri

February 12, 2018 Bollywood superstar Salman Khan, reported in Forbes as the 9th highest-paid actor in the world, rocked the Twitterverse this week with a cryptic message:

Translation: "I found a girl."

Fans and news platforms alike scrambled to decode the tweet, and speculation soared over whether the iconic Bollywood actor had decided to tie the knot in real life or had finally cast the lead for his production company’s next highly anticipated feature, Loveratri.

As suspense mounted, Khan solved the mystery and presented the leading lady of Loverati: New York Film Academy Mumbai alum Warina Hussain.

Hussain is a model and actress of Afghani-Iraqi descent, and attended the New York Film Academy’s Mumbai campus in 2017 to study Acting for Film. In the Hindi-language romance Loverati, she will star alongside Khan’s brother-in-law Aayush Sharma, in his acting debut.

The NYFA alum and leading lady reacted to Salman Khan’s announcement of her casting through her Instagram account:

"At NYFA Mumbai we are always proud to see our students put what they learn into practice as they go on to achieve great things in the industry," said Kitty Koo, NYFA Vice President – Mumbai, India. "It’s wonderful to see Warina Hussain’s success in working with Salman Khan, and we look forward to seeing more of her work."

The actress had previously appeared in a popular commercial for Cadbury Dairy Milk Silk. Following the Loverati casting announcement, Hussain has catapulted into the limelight in the world’s largest film industry and skyrocketed to nearly 50K followers on Instagram.

According to IMDB, Loverati is currently filming and anticipated for completion in 2018. It is the fifth feature film by Salman Khan Films, the eponymous superstar’s production company. Salman Khan has performed in 118 Bollywood hits, including Bodyguard, Tiger Zinda Hai, Bajrangi Bhaijaan, Hum Aapke Hai Kaun, Maine Pyaar Kiya, and the Dabangg series.
