Aayush Sharma: Salman Bhai wouldn’t give me a film until I was ready to face the camera

Bollywood Superstar Salman Khan‘s brother-in-law, Aayush Sharma, is all set to make his big Bollywood debut. The movie titled ‘Loveratri’ is backed by Salman Khan Films and is ready to release on October 5. Since the inception of the movie, there have been reports that Sharma has bagged the film owing to his family relations with Salman.

Squashing all such reports, Aayush, in an interview with DNA, mentioned that Salman is a hard taskmaster who chooses his protagonists quite carefully without letting family connections coming in the way of his decisions.

He went on to say, “Salman Bhai was very certain that he wouldn’t give me a film till the time he didn’t feel that I’m ready to face the camera. When I decided I wanted to seriously pursue a career in films, he (Salman) told me, ‘Although you were not born into a film family, you will still face the expectations that people have from an actor from a film family.” (sic)

Aayush added that he worked out hard to prepare for the film and said, “Salman Bhai put me on a strict training programme. I’d train for some 13 hours a day. It would include gymnastics, action, acting, diction, dance. I trained like this for four years.”

The debutant recalled the days when he worked as an assistant director for Salman’s films. He said, “I was very lucky to be a part of films like ‘Bajrangi Bhaijaan’, ‘Prem Ratan Dhan Payo’, ‘Sultan’, and ‘Tubelight’. It really helped me to get used to the set environment and understand filming. I enjoyed this a lot.”

Whatever may be the reason behind him being a part of the film, only time will tell whether Aayush has the caliber to be an actor.
