Brother in Law of Salman Khan, Aayush Sharma spoke about how his family was dragged in criticism of his professional work. Aayush Sharma is married to Arpita Khan, younger sister of Salman Khan. They both have two children together- Ahit and Ayat.
Aayush remembered how people dragged his family to criticism during the release of his debut film Loveyatri. He was called Arpita’s ‘dog’ by a popular newspaper.
Speaking to Bollywood Bubble, Aayush said, “Sometimes, it becomes personal. Like, involving my family and my wife into criticising my work, that is something I don’t really understand. If you are not happy with something I have done, how is my wife supposed to be involved in that? I have presented myself as an actor. I am completely okay with criticism on me.”
“I still remember when my first film released, a very major newspaper said, ‘Next time if Arpita wants to launch a dog, Salman should launch a dog.’ I was like, ‘That’s fine, I completely understand. The film is out there, everyone has the full right to give their opinions about the film.’ But to involve my wife in this criticism, I didn’t really understand. Arpita had nothing to do with the launch. The person who produced the film is Salman bhai, the person who is involved in my training is Salman bhai, the person who really gave me the platform is Salman bhai,” he added.
Aayush said that while criticizing him people forget that Salman has launched so many other hardworking actors too.
Last month, Aayush’s latest film Antim: The Final Truth was released in the cinemas. The film was his first on screen colab with Salman Khan.
