Salman Khan Calls Laapataa Ladies Kiran Rao’s Debut Film, Says ‘Kab Kaam Karogi Mere Saath?’

New Delhi: Kiran Rao’s new film ‘Laapataa Ladies’, a satirical comedy, has garnered great appreciation from Salman Khan. The actor did, however, also refer to the movie as her “debut as a director” with his glowing review of it.

Salman Khan lauds Kiran Rao’s Laapataa Ladies

Salman Khan took to his X (previously known as Twitter) handle on Wednesday and wrote, “Just saw Kiran Rao’s Laapataa Ladies. Wah wah (wow) Kiran. I really enjoyed it and so did my father. Congrats on your debut as a director, superb job. Kab kaam karogi mere saath (When will you work with me)?”

Many X users praised Salman for backing a small budget movie like ‘Laapataa Ladies’. Meanwhile, some were quick to point out that it is not Kiran’s first film as a director. 

Aamir Khan, Kiran’s former husband and co-producer on ‘Laapataa Ladies’, is good friends with Salman. Salman and Aamir are popular for their on-screen collaboration in Rajkumar Santoshi’s buddy comedy ‘Andaz Apna Apna’ from 1994. Recently, both the actors were spotted giving a performance at the grand Ambani bash, a celebration hosted as part of Anant Ambani and Radhika Merchant’s pre-wedding festivities.
