It’s final. Salman’s youngest brother-in-law, his darling sister Arpita’s husband Aayush Sharma is to be launched by Salman and his brothers .
Interestingly this long-pending decision to launch Aayush has now been taken to the next level at a time whenSalman has passed over the reins of his career-related business to his brother Sohail Khan.
Says a close friend of Salman’s, “It is significant that Ayush is being finally launched now when Salman has sacked his business manager and asked his brother to look after his professional interests. It shows that Salmanwants to keep his superstardom within the family.”
Significantly Salman’s business manager Reshma Shetty was given the marching orders without any reason for the ouster.
Friends of the Khans say the parting with the manager is “amicable” and conditional. Ms Shetty can be asked back to take charge of Salman’s career again.
In the meanwhile preparations are on full-throttle for Ayush’s star launch.
Says Salman’s friend, “He is being trained to be an all-rounder…. stunts, histrionics, the works, Ayush will be launched in a big-budget action-romance by Salman Khan Productions. It isn’t decided yet who will direct Ayush’s debut film.But we’ve heard Ali Abbas Zafar (who directed Salman’s 2016 blockbuster Sultan and is currently directing Salman in Tiger Zinda Hai) is being roped in to direct Ayush’s launch.”
Ayush assisted Ali Zafar during the making of Sultan.
