Salman Khan, under his banner Salman Khan Films, is presenting two newcomers in his upcoming production, Notebook. Actor Mohnish Bahl's daughter Pranutan and Zaheer Iqbal are the leads in the film. Inspired by a 2014 Thai film, Teacher's Diary, Notebook is directed by Nitin Kakkar of Filmistaan fame, who had also given television actress Kritika Kamra an interesting debut in Mitron. With a name that seems inspired by the popular Ryan Gosling-Rachel McAdams's The Notebook and the plot from that Thai film, will this Notebook be able to stand out? Notebook: Is Salman Khan's Production, Starring Pranutan Bahl and Zaheer Iqbal, Inspired By This Thai Film?
The recently revealed trailer gives a pretty idea about this. While we can find a lot of similarities between Notebook and Teacher's Diary, there is still a lot to be fascinated about in the trailer. Both the leads look decent. Pranutan is lovely and hopes to have the wonderful acting genes of her father and grandmother (the late Nutan). Zaheer Iqbal, who shares a striking resemblance to Tamil actor Arya, looks apt for his role.
The bunch of kids that they have cast in the film are adorable, while the locales of Kashmir adds a beautiful hue to the film. And as with any Hindi movie these days, Notebook recreates the popular song, "Bumro" from Hrithik Roshan and Preity Zinta's Mission Kashmir.

Last year, Salman Khan had launched his brother-in-law, Aayush Sharma, and newcomer Warina Hussain in the romantic, LoveYatri. Though the movie got attention thanks to the garba songs, it failed to perform at the box office. Hope Zaheer and Pranutan have better luck with Notebook, when it releases on March 29.
