Besides the dream Bollywood debut, Meezaan is in the news for his love life too. The newbie was quizzed about his relationship with Amitabh Bachchan’s granddaughter, Navya Naveli Nanda.
The actor cleared the air by revealing, “We are from the same friends’ circle, she’s my sister’s bestie and a really good friend. I’m not in a relationship with anyone.”
Rumours about the two started doing the rounds when Navya and Meezaan were snapped after a movie date in 2017. Not just that, they were snapped in the city on various other occasions as well with Meezaan trying his best to hide from the paparazzi.

Looks like star kids have already learnt the art of how to leave the media guessing by using the “We’re just good friends” card.
In an interview with a media portal, he revealed how he landed the role in Malaal. Meezaan said, “I had met my co-star Sharmin back in 2011 and since then we have been best friends. She was working as a costume assistant on Sanjay sir’s Bajirao Mastani. One day Ranveer sir (Singh, the leading man of the film) wasn’t available, so when she asked me, I tried out his costumes for the team. That’s when I met Sanjay sir for the first time. At the time he had no idea who my father was, yet told me that he wanted to launch me.”
The film is directed by Mangesh Hadawale and is slated to hit the theatres on July 5. In case you’ve missed the trailer, here it is:
