Our film industry is clamming up with clannishness and closing ranks on outsiders with increasing frequency. We earlier had star-kids being launched and given repeated opportunities to prove themselves. Now it seems even those married into powerful film families can hope to get a shot at stardom.
Salman Khan’s brother-in-law Ayush Sharma who belongs to an influential political family will soon be launched as a leading man.
Salman has earlier launched/mentored young aspirants like Pulkit Samrat and Sooraj Pancholi, with varying degrees of success. It remains to be seen how far Salman succeeds in making his most favourite sister’s husband a star.
In the meanwhile Ayush will be learning the ropes of filmmaking on the sets of his superstar-brother-in-law’s latest film Sultan. The young star aspirant will be joining the Sultan team as an assistant director.
