Filmmaker Mahesh Manjrekar has praised actor Aayush Sharma as he shot for the song ‘Vighnaharta’ from his upcoming film ‘Antim: The Final Truth’ with an injured and fractured palm.
Earlier in January this year, Aayush talked about suffering an injury on the sets of the film while shooting.
Talking about Aayush, Manjrekar said: “One thing I loved the most is, he was possessed, for him ‘Antim’ was do or die. He was so dedicated to the character, he became ‘Rahuliya’. During the shoot of the song, one day I had to go early and only a few minor action sequences were left, so I went home.”
The filmmaker added: “Next day, first thing in the morning I got to know, in the action scene, he accidentally hit a camera during a close up shot which broke his fingers. Since we had a lot of scenes and shots pending, I was slightly worried, but I was amazed, with that broken hand he finished the shoot. He must have been in terrible pain but somehow he managed.”
“Another thing is, because he fractured his hand, the concern was to maintain continuity, as at that moment he was the Rahuliya of the second half, where he is more ripped, I thought with that hand, he wouldn’t be able to exercise but still he managed.”
Manjrekar knew Aayush, brother-in-law of Bollywood superstar Salman Khan, was in pain.
He said: “I could see him tie his wrist and exercise and deliver every shot perfectly. It’s a jarring feeling when your hand is fractured, holding back those expressions to be in character. But he was involved in the role, so immersed in ‘Rahuliya’ that he forgot the pain.”
This is the first time that Salman Khan and Aayush will be seen sharing screen space. Presented by Salman Khan Films, ‘Antim’ is produced by Salma Khan and directed by Mahesh Manjrekar.

Nawazuddin says good people are needed for making good content
Actor Nawazuddin Siddiqui, who has been nominated in the Best Actor category at the International Emmy Awards for the Netflix film ‘Serious Men’, says for that making good content, good people are also needed.
Talking about what’s more important according to him – content of a project or who all are starring in it, Nawazuddin in a conversation with IANS said: “I think both are important.”
“A lot of content is being made but it will not come out and shine till the time the directors, actors and their performance isn’t there.”
He says if the actor or the maker are not good then there is no meaning to the content.
“No matter how good the content is, if the actor or the director is not good then there is no meaning to the content. For making a good thing, good people are needed,” he concluded.
‘Serious Men’ is based on Manu Joseph’s book of the same name. The film, directed by Sudhir Mishra, is a sharp take on ambition and caste politics, put in perspective in the Indian context.
Rajkummar Rao to star in Anubhav Sinha’s social drama ‘Bheed’
Filmmaker Anubhav Sinha has announced his next film titled ‘Bheed’, a social drama starring National Award-winning actor Rajkummar Rao.
Anubhav said: “‘Bheed’ is one of those titles that the whole team jumps at the moment you propose it.”
Talking about roping in Rajkummar for the lead role, the director said that for him, “casting was crucial”.
He added: “Raj is a very intriguing actor. He is one of the very few actors who can be so successfully transparent in a story. There always was a keen desire to work with him and I am looking forward to it.”
On working with Sinha, Rajkummar says it is a matter of “great honour and privilege to collaborate with a filmmaker who has such a distinct voice”.
“I have always found myself gravitating towards stories that trigger conversation. Even as an entertainer, I want my work to get people thinking. This is an important subject and the character needs me to stretch myself as an artist, beyond my comfort zone. I can’t wait to start shooting and lose myself in this universe.”
‘Bheed’ is jointly produced by Bhushan Kumar’s T-Series and Anubhav Sinha’s Benaras Mediaworks.
Bhushan Kumar said: “Anubhav and I have a long standing relationship since Tum Bin. And every outing together is even more exciting than the last one. Thappad is a film I am incredibly proud of and I can’t wait for ‘Bheed’ to kick off. It’s another of Anubhav’s deeply stirring stories and I am so proud to join hands with him yet again on this one.
“Raj is a wonderful actor and I can’t think of anyone better to pull off a film like this.”
The film will be shot across Lucknow. It is expected to go on floors in November as the unit continues their pre-production for the next few weeks.
