Do you remember the sniper Azaan Akbar who wanted to hoist the tricolour flag once the mission was over in the Salman Khan and Katrina Kaif starrer Tiger Zinda Hai? If you do then obviously, you must be constantly crushing on him since then! Well! He touched our hearts with his perfect charm and patriotism in the movie.

Now Tiger Zinda Hai box-office collection has crossed 300crores mark just within 13 days of its release and Paresh Pahuja has also rose to stardom with this. For a newcomer in Bollywood, it`s a fantasy to enter B-world through a Yash Raj banner film or to work with The Khans. Paresh got both the opportunities at once.

His dream debut in Tiger Zinda Hai is exactly what he asked. In the movie, Azaan is roped in the mission by Tiger to rescue the group of nurses kept hostage by a terrorist named Abu Usman in Syria. Tiger Zinda Hai actor,  Paresh Pahuja expecting to win the Filmfare Best Debut award.

Paresh was born in Ahmedabad. He moved to Mumbai for studies and got a job in advertising. Paresh says “I did theatre in college but didn’t know how to go about it. You are taught only one thing when you come from a middle-class family, about finding a job and getting married. But that didn’t go well with me because until you satisfy your inner desire, you aren’t satisfied. So I kept changing jobs every 5-6 months because I felt I was not meant for all that.”

Paresh finally landed his first ad through friends who were casting directors and since then he never looked back. Azaan had his own identity in the film. He was brought on the mission because Tiger needed him. And above that, he is a Muslim whose patriotism is questioned. There are only 3% Muslims in Indian Army. So, Ali (Abbas Zafar) had very beautifully touched upon all these little things.

We wish all the luck to this hottie for his future ventures!
