Aayush Sharma's Bollywood debut 'Loveyatri' might not have turned out to be a good idea for Salman Khan as the flick tanked at the box-office. The movie has managed to earn a little over Rs 7.5 crore at the domestic box-office.
Now, a close friend to Salman told Deccan Chronicle, “Salman wasn’t keen on launching his brother-in-law. But what to do? He’s the family’s son-in-law after all, and everyone knows Salman won’t deny his baby-sister Arpita (Khan) anything''.
“He tried to get an A-list heroine for the film, but everyone excused themselves pleading a lack of time. Only Katrina Kaif could have said yes. But since she’s so closely associated with Salman, it would have been odd for her to be seen romancing his brother-in-law. So he had no choice but to sign a newcomer opposite Aayush. All of Salman’s established director-friends also backed out, and a new director had to be brought on board'', he added.
Helmed by Abhiraj Minawala, Loveyatri features Warina Hussain in the female lead and the movie is produced under Salman Khan's home productions.
The movie was released along with Ayushmann Khurrana's Andhadhun and Tom Hardy's Venom
