Aayush Sharma is all set to make his debut with Loveyatri on 5th October, and the launch is made by none other than Salman Khan, who also happens to be his brother-in-law.
Like all other launches which Salman has made, Aayush has also been target and compared to the superstar himself. And that’s not about it. Aayush has been compared to all the 3 Khans, but of course, people thought he behave like Salman at most occasions.
Recollecting such incidents to Deccan Chronicle, Aayush spoke about the frustrating times he was often compared to Bhaijaan, which he now laughs upon. Here’s what he said:
Has anybody ever made comparisons of you with Salman Khan?
Oh yeah! But everytime you get compared to everybody! If I’m narrating a dialogue, somebody asks me to narrate Maine Pyar Kiya dialogue. When I’m wearing a leather jacket, the comparison is made with Shah Rukh Khan, and when I’m talking, I’ve been called Aamir Khan. I go like ‘how the hell am I supposed to look different’. Somebody came and told me that I should be happy about the comparisons. That’s what cinema does to you. You start idolizing the stars and imbibe their qualities. I’m a 90s kid who has grown up to all 3 Khans. You know there was a time when I was just quiet and sitting so somebody came and asked me why am I acting like Bhai, and I was like, I am not, I’m just not in the mood! People have started putting mine and his picture from Maine Pyar Kiya together and comparing.
But the comparisons would make you happy, no?
Ughh no! I think comparing to these mammoth superstars is not right. You cannot compare one film to 30 years of experience. These 3 Khans have been the most successful of all times! So there are no comparisons. I want to make my own small way.
You were once an aspiring photographer. So when did the acting keeda bite you?
I never wanted to be a photographer. During Bajrangi, I just had this love for camera. If I get some time off, I wish to walk down on the street and do street photography. I always wanted to act. Years after assisting, finally a film happened. I used to like taking pictures, going to edit room and editing it. Now I don’t get time but I think after film promotions are over, maybe that’s when I could start shooting again.
Salman Khan will also be clicking images…
Yeah, but in that comparison I’m better. My only weapon is him. I just point the camera at him and my work is done. He will get more retweets when I post his picture, right?...
