Last Updated: Wed, Feb 27, 2013 08:52 hrs

Actor Saqib Saleem used to work as a chef in his dad's restaurant in Delhi before turning to acting.

After doing Mujhse Fraaandship Karoge, he is now gearing up for the release of his new film Mere Dad Ki Maruti, made by Y-Films, an arm of Yash Raj Films.

His father is a restaurateur and runs a chain in Delhi. During his college days, Saqib briefly assisted his dad in running the restaurants. Later, he got interested in modelling and started getting offers from ad agencies and eventually shifted to Mumbai.

"Saqib was a chef at Saleem's, before he entered the industry. But he was keen to try his hand at acting," said Saqib's spokesperson.

Mere Dad Ki Maruti is set to hit the screens March 15, after which the actor will be seen in Bombay Talkies, which offers four stories and the young actor will be seen in the episode directed by Karan Johar.
