Armaan has inked a two-film deal with filmmaker Sajid Nadiadwala. "Armaan had a meeting with Sajid on Tuesday. At the end of his meeting, he had bagged two of his projects. He has been in touch with Salman and as it is well known that the star has been recommending him to filmmakers he is close to," said the source.

Armaan, however, prefers to put it in another way. "I am blessed to get an opportunity to work with the best. I don't have words to express my gratitude and happiness, just want to say a thank you with all my heart," he says, without taking names.

Armaan was recently spotted with his father and veteran filmmaker Rajkumar Kohli and his mother Nishi at Salman's sister's wedding reception in Mumbai on November 21.

Post his appearance on a reality show hosted by Salman last year, there was speculation that the star was lending him a helping hand to revive his career.

The first step was when Armaan was included in the celebrity cricket league that had Sallu as brand ambassador. He was then cast in 'Prem Ratan Dhan Paayo' to play one of Salman's brothers in the film.

Armaan was launched by his father in 'Virodhi' (1992). He went on to do forgettable films and took another shot with 'Jaani Dushman' (2002) and 'LOC: Kargil' (2003). He then vanished from the scene only to resurface in Sallu's TV show.
