Now, buzz was that Salman Khan’s brother-in-law, Aayush Sharma will be doing is debut film under Karan Johar’s Dharma Productions. KJo’s pending project ‘Raat Baaki Hai’ was supposed to star Fawad Khan and Katrina Kaif. But post Uri Attack and the ban on Pakistani artists, Karan was going to launch Aayush Sharma on the place of Fawad Khan. However, the plan has been dropped now!
A leading tabloid quoted a source saying, “But creative differences emerged between Aayush, Salman, Karan and the director. Now, Aayush will star in another film. The details are being worked out and it’s likely to roll later this year.” Now the film is passed on to the Salman Khan films. It will reportedly go on floors once Salman Khan returns from his Morroco schedule for Tiger Zinda Hai.
The film also stars Tiger Zinda Hai actress Katrina Kaif. Thus, the film will start its shoot in December. Talking about this, Salman Khan’s sister Arpita Khan Sharma said, “Karan will be part of all projects Aayush does. We will continue to seek his advice, even if he is not producing the film.
