These days Salman Khan and Aayush Sharma are promoting their new film ‘Antiem: The Final Truth’. On Wednesday, the actor was in Pune to promote his action thriller, which opens in theaters today. The action-packed drama stars Aayush Sharma as a gangster and Dabangg actor as an honest police officer. The film’s trailer also teased a major one-off fight between the two actors, who were seen shirtless during the final fight sequence.
At a promotional event in Pune, fans demanded Aayush take off his shirt so that the iconic moment from the film could be seen live. To which, a shy looking Aayush replied in Hindi, “I am just a student. Guru is here (pointing to Salman).” He further revealed that it was extremely difficult to do that particular scene in the film.
Salman, who killed it in his popular cop turn in Dabangg, played the role of Inspector Rajveer Singh in the final. Aayush Sharma, who was last seen in Loveyatri, shares the screen with his brother-in-law for the first time. Sharma is married to Salman’s sister Arpita Khan. The film also stars Mahesh V. Manjrekar, Mahima Makwana and Pragya Jaiswal.
The film is a remake of the 2018 Marathi film Mulshi Pattern, directed by Mahesh Manjrekar and produced by Salman Khan Under the banner of Salman Khan Films.
Talking about his character in the final, Salman told us, “I realize that I have played a cop many times, but I loved the subject. Initially I had two opinions whether I should do it or not, but this thought stuck in my mind. And, I was told that it was a small role but I refused to accept it. I was working on the script with Mahesh (Manjrekar) and I knew what we were making. We have taken the original plot from the original plot itself. The script has been changed and it is a completely different film. It’s lavishly put together whereas the original was made on a limited budget.”
