Abduroziq, a Dubai-based internet sensation from Tajikistan, reportedly stands just over three feet. He has grabbed a "key role" with Salman Khan in Farhad Samji's upcoming film 'Kabhi Eid Kabhi Diwali', which is likely to be renamed as 'Bhaijaan', according to Daily Pakistan.
The action comedy is scheduled to hit the theatres next year.
"I am so happy and excited to be making my Bollywood debut with Salman Khan. Never in my wildest dreams did I imagine that one day I would do a movie with such a huge star. I will work hard to prove that the faith reposed in me is not misplaced," a Dubai-based publication quoted Abduroziq, 17, as saying.

'Kabhi Eid Kabhi Diwali' reportedly began shooting on Salman's farm on the outskirts of Mumbai in June but its title was changed to 'Bhaijaan' to make it appear as a spin-off of the actor's 2018 smash-hit 'Bajrangi Bhaijaan'.
Earlier, Abduroziq was seen posing alongside Salman Khan as well as rendering the popular 'Dil Diwana Bin Sajna Ke Mane Na' number from the 1989 blockbuster 'Maine Pyaar Kiya' that catapulted the actor to instant stardom.
Abduroziq, who received the UAE Golden Visa last August, was born into a poor family of gardeners in Gizhdarva village, which is subordinate to the city of Panjakent in the Tajik northern Sughd province. He suffered from rickets— a skeletal disorder that stunts growth among children. As a child, he would make a living by singing songs at a local bazaar.
Today, Abduroziq is a household name in Central Asia, with millions of followers on Instagram and TikTok. In recent months he has collaborated with the likes of Grammy winner AR Rahman and top songwriter-producer RedOne — known for his hits with international pop icons such as Jennifer Lopez, Nicki Minaj and Enrique Iglesias. He was recently awarded the Celebrity Influencer of the Year award.
