As fans get curious to know more about Zaheer, we dig up a little to get to know her boyfriend, who she has been dating for the past seven years. Read on to know more about him.

All about his family

Zaheer was born on December 10 in 1988. He comes from a non-filmy background as his father Iqbal Ratansi is a jeweller and businessman. He did schooling from Bombay Scottish School, where actor Ranbir Kapoor was his senior. His mother is a homemaker, his sister works as a celebrity stylist, and his younger brother is a computer engineer.

A lavish life

Zaheer hails from a wealthy family involved in the jewellery business, and a scroll through his Instagram feed will give you a glimpse of the luxurious lifestyle he leads. From travelling to exotic destinations such as Netherlands and Finland to driving swanky cars such as Mercedes Benz M-Class to owning the powerful Ducati Scrambler, Zaheer surely believes in living life king-size.

The Salman connection

Zaheer’s father shares a close bond with actor Salman Khan, due to which Zaheer also has a similar equation with him. His launch in Bollywood was also supported by Salman. In fact, it is believed that Zaheer first met Sonakshi at a party hosted by Salman. Several reports also suggest that Zaheer completed his education with Salman's sister Arpita Khan.

Bollywood dreams

Initially, Zaheer opted to continue the family business and become a jeweller. However, his love for acting brought him to Bollywood. Before his acting debut, Zaheer tried his hands at direction and worked as an assistant director on the 2014 film Jai Ho. He made his acting debut in 2019 in a romantic drama titled Notebook, produced by Salman. In the film, he starred opposite Pranutan Bahl, the granddaughter of the veteran actress Nutan. He was seen with Sonakshi in Double XL, and Kisi Ka Bhai Kisi Ki Jaan.

Not a love story

Zaheer has fiercely guarded his private life. But despite that, he was reportedly involved with two actresses before he got into a relationship with Sonakshi. It was claimed that he dated actor Deeksha Seth for a brief period. Following that, he got into a relationship with Kuch Kuch Hota Hai actor Sana Saeed. They later parted ways.

Now, reports claim that Sonakshi and Zaheer will register their marriage on June 23, which will be followed by a wedding party for friends and colleagues from the film industry.
