LOVERATRI lead Aayush Sharma has a strong political lineage that he doesn't brag about. He has been known to all industry circles for the past four years ever since he married Arpita Khan Sharma but personally he has chosen to maintain a low profile. His hunger to make it make it on his own is only growing and is his biggest motivator. With the film's teaser getting accolades from critics and audiences alike, Aayush is working even harder to make his mark. But his journey, unlike what his critics might think, has simply not been easy. He got his break the hard way, through rigorous training, and sheer hard work.
Aayush says, "When I decided I wanted to seriously pursue a career in films Salman Bhai told me that although you were not born into a film family, you will still have the expectations that people have from an actor from a film family. I completely agree I obviously lacked the experience and I didn’t have the exposure that other actors have who belong to a family from the industry. So he put me on a strict training program, I would train for around 13 hours a day. My training would include gymnastics, action, acting, diction and dance. I trained like this for 4 years. Along with the training schedule Salman Bhai recommended that I assist on films. I was very lucky to be a part of films like BAJRANGI BHAIJAAN, PREM RATAN DHAN PAYO, SULTAN and TUBELIGHT. It really helped me to get used to the set environment and understand how a film is shot. I enjoyed a lot assisting in different departments. Salman Bhai was very certain that he wouldn’t give me a film till the time he doesn’t feel I'm ready to face the camera. So after 4 years of rigorous training finally Abhiraj approached me for LOVERATRI. He felt I would be able to do justice to the character. Salman Bhai heard the film and decided that its the perfect film for my debut. So at last I was lucky enough for an opportunity to face the camera."
Aayush’s journey is a testament to his hard work of 4 years. So if you thought that being Salman Khan's protege makes life easy, then think again. Here's wishing the young Aayush all the very best for his debut LOVERATRI
