Salman Khan may be regretting his decision to launch brother-in-law Aayush Sharma after an underwhelming performance of ‘Loveyatri’ at the box office
“Salman wasn’t keen on launching his brother-in-law. But what to do? He’s the family’s son-in-law after all, and everyone knows Salman won’t deny his baby-sister Arpita (Khan) anything.”, a close friend of Khan’s told Deccan Chronicle, “He tried to get an A-list heroine for the film, but everyone excused themselves pleading a lack of time. Only Katrina Kaif could have said yes. But since she’s so closely associated with Salman, it would have been odd for her to be seen romancing his brother-in-law. So he had no choice but to sign a newcomer opposite Aayush. All of Salman’s established director-friends also backed out, and a new director had to be brought on board.” Karan Johar backed off from launching Sharma as well, after being closely involved in the initial stages.
“Now that the film has fizzled out, it’s the end of Salman’s commitment to launch his brother-in-law,”, the friend added. Sharma’s debut film ‘Loveyatri’ (2018) released on 5th October.
