The launch and re-launch graphs in actor Armaan Kohli's Bollywood career show nothing fruitful.

His producer father Rajkumar Kohli's backing also seems to have taken a taken a back seat.

But there is one generous soul in Bollywood who is willing to give Armaan Kohli another chance - probably his last.

Superstar Salman Khan's 'big brother' side has taken the better of him yet again, as he is planning to re-launch Armaan in his upcoming film.

Indian daily 'Mumbai Mirror' reports that, Armaan consented, in principle, to play Salman's second brother in Sooraj Barjatya's next film which is expected to roll in June.

The film will revolve around the relationship between three brothers.

Neil Nitin Mukesh was recently confirmed for the other brother's role in the film. While Neil will have a grey character, Salman plays a double role in the film but the two characters are not related by blood.

This will be Armaan's comeback to the silver screen after 11 years.

'Big Brother' Salman Khan has been more than generous to Armaan.

After his 'Bigg Boss 7' break Armaan was reportedly the favoured one in the reality show. Social media was abuzz with claims that host Salman was soft on Armaan and overlooked his follies.

Despite his violent behaviour and hot temper, Armaan was let off with subtle warnings.

When co-contestant Sophia Hayat filed a police complaint against Armaan for beating her up with a mop handle, he was arrested.

Promptly Salman was dragged into the controversy and he was by Armaan's side, asking him to keep his cool.

Clearly, Salman knows a thing or two about jail stay!

During the finale Salman shook a leg with the angry man on Khan's popular number 'Desi Beat' from the movie ’Bodyguard".

After bonding with Salman on the sets of the reality show, the actor is also part of Salman and Sohail's celebrity cricket team Mumbai Heroes at the CCL.

Armaan's move from being 'good acquaintance' to the 'Dabaang' actor's inner circle was quiet smooth.

Only time will tell whether Salman's efforts will resurrect Armaan's movie career or it will take even the hit-maker Salman Khan down.
