Navya was earlier linked to Meezaan but the latter rubbished such rumours in a recent interview. Meezaan, son of actor Javed Jaaferi, told Pinkvilla, “I’m in a relationship but not with Navya. Just because I got papped with my friend doesn’t mean she’s my girlfriend. Maybe you will believe me when I get papped with my actual girlfriend.”
He added, “It’s unfair to the other person, even Navya in this case. The media should draw a line somewhere but personally, I don’t care what’s being said.”
Directed and written by Mangesh Hadawale, Malaal is a love story of Astha (Sharmin) and Shiva (Meezaan), who are from contrasting backgrounds and live in a Mumbai chawl. The music of the film is influenced from local Marathi beats which are evident in the Ganpati dance number, Udhal Ho.
Sharmin had assisted Bhansali on Bajirao Mastani whereas Meezaan assisted Bhansal on sets of Padmaavat.
