Aayush Sharma has been spending this lockdown bonding with his family at their farmhouse in Panvel. From celebrating his 4-year-old son Ahil’s birthday to being a doting father to his baby daughter Ayat, he is enjoying it all.
In an interview with Times of India, Sharma spoke about farming with Ahil, “I grew up in Himachal, I used to spend a lot of time doing these things. I think it’s a very fatherly thing to do with your kids. In Mumbai, you don’t really get the chance to do these things. I thought it is a good way to bond with Ahil and how basic farming happens. We plucked tomatoes, tried to make tomato soup. I taught him that farming isn’t that easy, but it’s still fun!”
Regarding Ayat, he shared, “She’s still rather young but she’s started to react to people and associating to people. Luckily I have a lot of time to spend with my family owing to the quarantine. We take her out for strolls and she gets very fascinated by nature around. I’m just trying to fulfil my fatherly duties.”
Sharma revealed that his children’s names have an interesting thought behind them, “We wanted everyone to be named with A. When I was travelling to London, I met a guy named Ahil and I thought it’s a very unique name and it turned out to mean the rightful prince in Persian and that was very fascinating. We believe in secular relationships so we wanted both our kids to have a Muslim first name and a Hindu surname.”
