Mumbai: Warina Hussain says she has found a "dream launch" in Loveyatri and the debutante would be forever grateful to Salman Khan for the opportunity. From performing for the family in Afghanistan as a child to making her Bollywood debut with the upcoming romantic-drama, the actor is geared up for her journey in films.

She will be seen opposite another newcomer Aayush Sharma, Salman's brother-in-law, in the Abhiraj Minawala directorial. "To make a debut in a film produced by Salman Khan is surreal. The bigger the project, the more responsibility you have and I am aware of it. I am so grateful to him, this still feels like a dream," she said. Born in Kabul, Warina moved to India around seven years ago and started modelling.

"I was really nervous when I did my first portfolio. I knew nothing of the industry then. Today, I find myself in the same spot where I was six years ago. This is my first film and I have no idea about how to go about it," she says. It all started when she met the star for the first time at his residence.

She says, "He was so nice. He is always very positive about everything. He has been so supportive of me throughout. He is a real-life hero to me. My life totally changed because of him. Despite me coming from a very different background, he gave me this huge break."
