Sharma will make his debut, under the Salman Khan Films (SKF) banner, in a love story that is set to release in 2018, shooting for which will begin from February. The film will be helmed by debutant director Abhiraj Minawala. While Aayush has no acting or film background, he is married to the Dabangg star's youngest sister Arpita Khan and that should help him secure the right connections.
But who is Aayush Sharma and why does he deserve a place in the industry? Well, for one, he belongs to the ‘Khan’dan. That should settle it. But here is an attempt to give him credit. Aayush hails from Himachal Pradesh and comes from the wealthy family is currently working with his family business in Delhi. Born to Anil Sharma, who is the Panchayati Raj & Rural Development Minister for Himachal Pradesh and the grandson of Sukhram, the former telecommunications minister of India. it’s none of these powerful connections that have given him a foothold in the industry.
In the past, Salman Khan has mentored many newbies, grooming them for Bollywood and even launching some of them in films. Now the brother-in-law will join the list. Aayush, who is said to be already taking acting lessons and has undergone training in dance and action. He, however, fails to hold an identity besides being the brother-in-law of Salman.
Arpita and Aayush got married in the year 2014 in a grand ceremony at the Falaknuma Palace in Hyderabad and Salman’s plans to launch his brother-in-law has been in news ever since their marriage.
Several Bollywood stars joined in welcoming Sharma to the fold.
