Salman Khan recently launched his brother-in-law in Bollywood with the home production titled LoveYatri. The movie turned out to be a dud. Nepotism doesn't rock that much. Huh, Karan Johar? Speaking of whom, a news report by Deccan Chronicle suggests that KJO was supposed to co-produce LoveYatri but he backed out infuriating Salman. That is not all. Things only get more interesting from here. LoveYatri Movie Review: Even Garba Feels Boring in Aayush Sharma and Warina Hussain's Insufferable Debut Produced by Salman Khan.
As per the report, Salman was not very eager on launching Aayush, who is married to his sister Arpita. The news daily quoted a source, "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 anything.” LoveYatri: 10 Most Hilarious Twitter Reactions About Aayush Sharma and Warina Hussain's Debut Film.
To make up for Aayush's on-screen potential, or lack of it, Salman even tried to get an A-lister actress on board. "...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 Ayush. All of Salman’s established director-friends also backed out, and a new director had to be brought on board,” the source added.
LoveYatri's cost of production is estimated to be Rs 15 crore as per reports. The movie has only been able to mint Rs 10 crore at the box office in the first week of its run. Critics have not appreciated the movie either. Well, we are actually waiting to see what Aayush Sharma's next move will be.
