Aayush Sharma, a Bollywood actor, has been cast in the family drama ‘Kabhi Eid Kabhi Diwali,’ in which he will portray one of the on-screen brothers of the movie’s central protagonist, played by superstar Salman Khan.
Aayush confirmed the news, saying, “Yes, I am a part of the film and I’m looking forward to experimenting with my cinematic aptitude with this project. From a romantic drama to an action film and now a family drama, I’m grateful with how my innings in the film industry have panned out.”
The picture will have a strong amount of humour, romance, and action, as well as a cross-cultural love tale. Farhad Samji, who also directed the Akshay Kumar, Kriti Sanon, as well as Arshad Warsi-starrer ‘Bachchhan Paandey,’ will direct the film.
Aayush further said, “I’ve never wanted to limit my creative aesthetics within one genre and my creative aptitude has always been a reflection of versatility and diversity. Going forward I’d love to explore newer genres and newer formats that leverage my innate authenticity and passion for the performing arts.”
He elaborates on how this will be his second film with Salman Khan and his third under the Salman Khan Films brand, saying,
“I am extremely grateful and humbled. This will be my second film opposite bhai and never in my wildest dreams did I think I’d earn the rare opportunity to feature alongside him in two consecutive projects.”
“From my perspective, I see it as a blessing because I get to hone my craft in the presence of one of the cinematic legends of the country. It has been a great learning curve for me and there are so many avenues that I need to conquer”, he added.
Salman Khan Films’ ‘Kabhi Eid Kabhi Diwali’ notably features Pooja Hegde, Venkatesh, as well as other actors from the south Indian and north Indian film industries. The movie is slated to hit theatres inside the second half of 2022 or early 2023.
