What do Isabel Kaif, Sonakshi Sinha, Sooraj Pancholi, Athiya Shetty and Arjun Kapoor have in common? Apart from famous last names, of course. The answer is Salman Khan.

Salman Khan is known for launching new faces in Bollywood.

While Sonakshi and Arjun Kapoor have now made their presense felt in the industry, the rest are getting ready for the kill.

Aditya Pancholi's son Sooraj Pancholi, who has been in the news in connection with the Jiah Khan suicide case, will be seen opposite Sunil Shetty's daughter Athiya Shetty.

The young pair will be seen in a film titled Tu Mera Hero Hai which is the official remake of 1983 Jackie Shroff blockbuster Hero.

As for Katrina Kaif's sister Isabel Kaif, Salman Khan has ensured her a place in crossover film Dr. Cabbie where she stars with Kunal Nayyar of The Big Bang Theory fame. Interestingly, this will be Nayyar's debut in the film industry as well.

Salman's launches: (Clockwise from top) Daisy Shah, Tiger, Isabel Kaif, Athiya Shetty, Sooraj Pancholi and Sana Khan.

Salman will also launch South Indian actress Daisy Shah and Sana Khan in his 2014 release Mental. The film is a remake of A. R. Murugadoss' Telugu film Stalin.

Remember Salman's bodyguard Shera in the title track of Bodyguard? Well, the actor has apparently promised Shera's son Tiger a launch into the film industry. “It’s true that Salman would be launching my son. He has said that (launching his son) which means he would have seen something in my son,” Shera confirmed to PTI.

But Sallu bhai isn't doing this for the first time. The actor has helped with the launch of top actresses like Katrina Kaif and as some say, even Aishwarya Rai Bachchan. To know about all the actresses Salman Khan has brought in to Bollywood, click here.
