In an exclusive interview with us, Aayush Sharma spoke about his comparisons with superstar Salman Khan in the film.
Aayush told Bollywood Bubble, “My biggest thing was if you have a big superstar playing such an important role and then what if the audience turns around and says ‘Listen, get this guy out and I want the superstar back on’. And that was my honest fear.”
Sharma added, “But when people started enjoying the journey of Rahuliya and started connecting to it, that honestly made me realize that today’s content is everything.”
The Antim actor continued, “If the audience is related to your character and they want to know your journey, they’ve invested onto you, then that is what matters. That means, today, we have to spend time on the writing process, to create characters that can hold.”
