Web Desk: Salman Khan is a family man, he enjoys a strong bond with his brother Arbaaz and Sohail and also with his younger sister Arpita Khan. He is very possessive about her and her wedding with Aayush Sharma in 2014.
During the launch of his brother-in-law’s Bollywood debut, ‘Loveratri’ Salman revealed something about the time when Arpita introduced Aayush to the Khan-daan, before her marriage. Initially, all the brothers were hesitant but later came to terms with Arpita’s choice.
The actor said that the case of Arpita was similar with Alvira’s marriage. He quoted, “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)”
Aayush and Arpita tied the knot on November 20, 2014. The couple has a two-year-old son Ahil.
