Arpita Khan's husband, Aayush Sharma is a famous actor in the Hindi film industry. He stepped into Bollywood with the movie, Loveyatri. Apart from that, he was also seen in the movie, Antim: The Final Truth. Moreover, it was back in 2014 when Aayush got married to Salman Khan's sister, Arpita.

Aayush Sharma talks about the nepotism debate around him post his marriage to Arpita Khan

Going forward in the interview, Aayush Sharma stated that when he got married to Arpita Khan, people said that he was getting married for money or to enter Bollywood. Talking more about the same, the Loveyatri actor remarked that he comes from a political family and was a struggling actor back then. He also added that he has a lot of things in his life and it's because of his parents. Aayush said that before he was even friends with Arpita, he had already given 300 auditions, so all these conversations about him marrying Salman's sister for money and career were nothing but baseless. In Aayush's words:

"Also, I had given 300 auditions before getting an entry in Bollywood and me and Arpita became friends at the time I was a struggling actor. So, will Arpita not know about my character before marriage. Was she that naive? Won’t the whole Khan family know about me? This is a baseless conversation.”

In the same interview, Aayush also shared that he had even decided to quit acting before tying the knot with Arpita Khan, as he was tired of giving 300 auditions and nothing was happening. He mentioned that his brother-in-law, Salman Khan then helped him. Aayush said that Salman offered him training by saying that the former's training was not good. Aayush mentioned:

"What they don’t know is that when my marriage with Arpita was finalised I told Salman sir that I don’t want to act because I had given 300 auditions and nothing happened. I told him I can’t do it. He said that my training hasn’t been good and offered to train me.”

When Aayush Sharma recalled his parents' reaction to his decision to marry Arpita Khan

Earlier, in an interaction on Bharti Singh and Haarsh Limbachiya’s podcast, Aayush Sharma walked down memory lane and recalled that his parents reacted when he told them that he wanted to marry Arpita Khan. The actor shared that his parents were shocked and asked him how he would manage Arpita's expenses, as Aayush was unemployed back then. Aayush added that although his father was cool about all this, his mother was worried about the fact that the backgrounds of the two families weren't well aligned, as the Khans belong to the filmy family while they have a political background.
