Salman’s bro-in-law Aayush Sharma to romance Katrina in ‘Raat Baaki’?


Salman Khan has been preparing brother-in-law Aayush Sharma for his Bollywood debut, and not long ago there were reports that the ‘Sultan’ actor was planning to launch him in collaboration with Karan Johar.

The latest buzz in this regard is that Aayush will make his grand debut opposite Salman’s good friend Katrina Kaif in the film ‘Raat Baaki’. The romantic drama will be directed by debutant Aditya Dhar and will be bankrolled by Salman Khan Films and KJo’s Dharma Productions.

‘Raat Baaki’ was announced by Karan last year, who wanted to cast Pakistani hunk Fawad Khan in it. However, due to the protests against hiring Pakistani actors and technicians for Bollywood films in the wake of Uri terror attack in September last year, the project was shelved. Now, Salman has decided to revive the project and launch Aayush with it, according to a report in Mid-day.

Karan had already finalised Katrina for the role and buzz is that Salman isn’t too keen on making any changes on that front. However, there is no confirmation yet from either Salman or KJo’s side about the same.

Aayush, son of an eminent politician, is married to Salman’s doting sister Arpita Khan. Aayush is very good-looking himself and has all the trappings of being a handsome hero. He is also keen on working in films and he has been training with Salman’s trainer to get the right body shape before his debut.

Aayush had been visiting the sets of ‘Bajrangi Bhaijaan’ frequently with his wife when the film was being shot in Kashmir and Rajasthan. He has also reportedly worked as an assistant director for ‘Sultan’ and ‘Tubelight’, to observe the art of filmmaking and get an understanding of the things that happen on a film’s set.
