Bollywood star Salman Khan heaped praise on Kiran Rao for her latest directorial venture Laapataa Ladies on Wednesday, expressing his desire to work with the filmmaker in future.

Taking to X, Salman wrote, “Just saw Kiran Rao's Laapataa Ladies. Wah wah (wow) Kiran. I really enjoyed it and so did my father. Congrats on your debut as a director, superb job. Kab kaam karogi mere saath (When will you work with me?).”


While Salman Khan's praise for the film was evident, a minor slip occurred in his acknowledgment. He inadvertently referred to Laapataa Ladies as Kiran Rao's directorial debut. For those unfamiliar with Kiran Rao's directorial journey, her directorial debut was the critically acclaimed 2010 film Dhobi Ghat.

Laapataa Ladies boasts an ensemble cast including Nitanshi Goel, Pratibha Ranta, and Sparsh Shrivastava in the lead roles. Additionally, Chhaya Kadam, Durgesh Kumar, Satendra Soni, and Hemant Soni deliver noteworthy performances in significant roles.

The film — a joint production venture by Aamir Khan, Kiran Rao, and Jyoti Deshpande — has raked in Rs 9.79 crore nett in India since its release on March 1.
