en Bollywood News Aayush Sharma reveals how he and wife Arpita faced divorce rumours: “We had a good laugh over it”

Aayush Sharma, who stars in Loveyatri and is married to Salman Khan's sister Arpita Khan, joked about coping with divorce rumors.

Aayush Sharma and Salman Khan’s sister Arpita Khan Sharma, have been married for nearly a decade and the couple has seen many ups and downs, including dealing with divorce speculations during Aayush’s debut in Bollywood.

Aayush Sharma reveals how he and wife Arpita faced divorce rumours: “We had a good laugh over it”

In 2019, the pair became the subject of surprising divorce rumors, which shocked Aayush.

In a recent interview with News18 Showsha, he recounted, “Nobody has been that interested in my life to float rumours about me around. But I remember a very small incident. I took my son out for dosa and when we were coming out, the paparazzi caught me and asked me if Arpita and I were filing for divorce.”

Despite their horror, Aayush and Arpita found humour in the situation, busting out laughing at the rumour. “I was just so surprised! I took my son out for a snack and ended up facing questions about our divorce. When I came back home, I asked Arpita if she was going to divorce me. And we had a good laugh over it,” Aayush shared, reflecting on the bizarre episode.

Arpita has been a steady source of support for Aayush throughout his career’s ups and downs, providing both encouragement and constructive criticism. “Arpita is a very harsh critic. But she’s more honest than harsh. She’s somebody who watches films very objectively. She has a very different sensibility compared to the kind of films I make. She knows that I like making mass films but she’s into films based on true stories,” Aayush revealed.

He also mentioned that she appreciates good content. “She likes films that are shorter and emotionally driven. She has a very different take on cinema, which is somewhat of a grounding exercise for us. She’s a very critical person. While watching my films, she gets into the continuity. If there’s a continuity jerk, she’ll have a problem,” he said.

Aayush also stated that Arpita isn’t afraid to express her ideas and suggestions, even if it means requesting that certain parts be removed from his films. “She gets into the colour combination of the clothes I’m wearing and questions why certain scenes look a certain way and why my character did what he did. If she doesn’t like something, she tells me to take that bit out,” he explained.

Sharing how he values her input and validation, Aayush stated, “When I watch the rushes of a film that I’ve acted in, I make my family and kids watch the sequences multiple times. And one good thing about Arpita is that she never watches my films with the notion that it has her husband in them. She looks at them as an audience who has bought a ticket and then shares her opinions on whether she liked me in the film or not.”

Aayush and Arpita fell in love during a party in 2011. While Aayush was the first to declare his feelings, Arpita took her time responding. Fast forward to November 2014, the pair exchanged vows and embarked on their married life. They are now parents to son Ahil and daughter Ayat, and their tenth wedding anniversary is almost approaching.
