salman Khan will be seen sharing screen space with his brother-in-law, Aayush Sharma, for the first time in Antim: The Final Truth. Aayush, who made his Bollywood debut as the guy-next-door in Loveyatri, has undergone a huge transformation to get into his Antim character of gangster Rahuliya. Salman has now praised his dedication and hard work. Antim is all set to hit the theatres on November 26. In the film, Aayush Sharma plays the role of a menacing gangster Rahuliya. To do justice to his character, the actor achieved the right physique and adapted mannerisms of a criminal. Now, in a behind-the-scenes video, Salman Khan and the cast and crew of Antim can be seen praising Aayush for his transformation.
Salman Khan, who essays the role of police officer Rajveer and goes up against Aayush’s Rahuliya in Antim, said, “I was shocked. There’s been a huge transformation from Loveyatri to Antim. He has worked so hard in the film. His work will be appreciated.”Director Mahesh Manjrekar added, “Aayush worked really hard with the physical transformation. We needed a very tough looking guy. I realised this boy has a lot of passion and he is extremely focused. He knows what he wants to do and I think he has done a brilliant job.”Mahima Makwana also talked about Aayush’s performance in Antim, not just in terms of his gangster avatar, but emotional scenes also.Aayush Sharma also talked about his character and thanked Antim team. He said, “First of all was the physical transformation, I needed to look like somebody who can be a strong character on the screen. I wanted to keep him very believable. A gangster in real life might just be looking like a common man, it is just that he has to have the power to pull the trigger.
Antim is a film that has taught me a lot, it helped me grow as an actor, it helped me grow as a human being. Thanks to Mahesh sir, Salman Bhai, it’s a very special feeling. When the film started, I never thought I’ll be able to execute Rahuliya. When the film ended, I didn’t know how to not be Rahuliya.”Salman Khan and Aayush Sharma’s Antim is an adaptation of the Zee5 Marathi crime drama named Mulshi Pattern. The film is presented by Salman Khan Films and produced by Salma Khan.
