Aayush Sharma, fresh off the success of Antim: The Final Truth, will be starring in Kabhi Eid Kabhi Diwali, we have confirmed. The family drama stars Salman Khan as the lead protagonist in the Farhad Samji directed film and will see Sharma play a pivotal role as one of the brothers of Salman’s character. Kabhi Eid Kabhi Diwali, loosely based on a cross-cultural love story, is a blend of a comedy, romance, and action flick.
This film will mark Sharma’s second film opposite Salman Khan and the third film under the Salman Khan Films banner. He thinks it is a blessing to be a part of this project, “I am extremely grateful and humbled. This will be my second film opposite Bhai and never in my wildest dreams did I think I’d earn the rare opportunity to feature alongside him in two consecutive projects. From my perspective, I see it as a blessing because I get to hone my craft in the presence of one of the cinematic legends of the country. It has been a great learning curve for me, and there are so many avenues that I need to conquer.”
The young actor added, “From a romantic drama to an action film and now a family drama, I’m grateful for how my innings in the film industry have panned out. I’ve never wanted to limit my creative aesthetics within one genre, and my creative aptitude has always been a reflection of versatility and diversity. Going forward, I’d love to explore newer genres and newer formats that leverage my innate authenticity and passion for the performing arts.”
The film ready to begin shooting in May also has Pooja Hegde and Venkatesh in the cast. Kabhi Eid Kabhi Diwali is slated to hit theatres in the latter half of 2022 or early 2023.
