en Bollywood News Aayush Sharma recalls being a ‘background dancer on the sets of Yeh Jawaani Hai Deewani’; says, “There were 300-400 background dancers and I was one of them”

Aayush Sharma reveals being a part of ‘Dilliwali Girlfriend’ and how he was excited to meet the cast including Ranbir Kapoor and Deepika Padukone.

Aayush Sharma, who is gearing up to return to theatres after Antim: The Final Truth in 2021 with Ruslaan, recalled the time when he was just a struggling star. The actor, who is now married to Salman Khan’s sister Arpita Khan, made his big Bollywood debut with Loveyatri in 2018. But he recalls starting off as a background dancer in films including Yeh Jawaani Hai Deewani. He also went on to say how casting directors now don’t even remember rejecting him, and remembered the time when a director has also asked him to get out.

In an interaction with Bollywood Bubble, Aayush Sharma opened up about his first experience on a movie set, which was not in Loveyatri but in Yeh Jawaani Hai Deewani wherein he was a background dancer in the song, ‘Dilliwali Girlfriend’, picturised on Ranbir Kapoor and Deepika Padukone. He said, "The first time I came to Mehboob Studios was for Yeh Jawaani Hai Deewani. Someone told me 'Why are you working as a background dancer.' I said that I wanted to see what a film set looks like and to see how the shoots happen. I couldn't find a job as Assistant Director.”

He further went on to elaborate and shared, “At one point, I wanted to become a casting director, thinking that I could get on the set through this. I remember that I had a shoot for YJHD at Mehboob Studios. It was a beautiful moment as there were 300-400 background dancers and I was one of them. Then I saw Manish Malhotra, Deepika Padukone, Kalki Koechlin and then I saw Ranbir Kapoor entering the set for the ‘Dilliwali Girlfriend’ song shoot."

He also recalled how casting directors in the past rejected him easily but now, they have no memory doing so. "I hold my memories close to me. It's funny sometimes to think that some casting directors have rejected me before and now when I meet them, they tell me that I liked your films. They don't even remember that they rejected me before,” he added and even mentioned the time when one of the directors had asked him to ‘get out’ of the sets.

Meanwhile, currently, Aayush Sharma is gearing up for the spy-action drama Ruslaan, which stars Sushrii Mishraa, Jagapathi Babu, and Vidya Malavade. The film is slated for release this week, on April 26.
