On Monday after launching the trailer of Loveratri in Mumbai, Salman Khan along with debutants Aayush Sharma and Warina Hussain moved to the capital city, Delhi for a grand launch of the trailer.
Salman Khan Films' is producing brother-in-law Aayush Sharma's debut film and the Khan family has all come along to support and promote the film.
At the trailer launch, Salman Khan made an interesting revelation about his and brother Arbaaz Khan and Sohail Khan's reaction upon learning about Aayush Sharma as Arpita Khan's boyfriend. The star said that they were very hesitant when Arpita introduced Aayush to them but later agreed with her choice.
Amidst sharing several anecdotes at Loveratri's trailer launch, Salman Khan recalled how Arpita's marriage proposal was similar to sister Alvira's.
Sharing the story, he said, "We brothers wake up late. And all such proposals came early in the morning. We were (that time) making a film titled My Punjabi Nikah, that's still under production. So we were looking for a new boy. After a month Sohail said 'I've seen a guy in the gym. He is the ideal casting for My Punjabi Nikah.' I said that's great, let's sign him. But then that guy simply vanished and reappeared after three months. We met that guy (referring to Aayush Sharma) at our home when our sister (Arpita) brought him and said I want to marry him. We agreed, and then Sohail told me, 'remember I told you about that boy at the gym for that film? He's the boy!' I said 'great, now our film will be made for free.' So nepotism doesn't suit him! (laughs)"
Eventually, Arpita Khan married Aayush Sharma in 2014, which was one of the grand events in Bollywood then.
