Aayush on whether having Salman as a co-star is an advantage

"Even if he was not related to me, for any actor to be in a project which has Slaman bhai is a great opportunity. I feel lucky that I am even on the poster. So it's a huge advantage. As an actor, there's certain things you learn while you are training, and lot of things while on set. Most of his films have been so famous and popular, hence it's a dream come true that so many people will watch my films," says Aayush Sharma.

Mahesh on cancer

"During Antim, I was diagnosed with cancer. I shot the last portions when I had cancer and was taking chemotherapy. Today I am happy to tell you all that I am cancer-free. I was lucky the chemo didn't affect me. I had to undergo chemo first before a huge surgery. I have realised that work and passion drive you. I always think positive. When I was told I have cancer, it didn't shock me. I accepted it. There are so many people who get cancer. They fight and survive. So it didn't bother me too much. All of them were caring and helping. There was no problem (while shooting). I was quite comfortable. Salman and Aayush were very supportive," says Mahesh Manjrekar.

Antim almost took OTT route

"People are coming back. If you can, even the audience can. Watching films on laptop, phones and tablets doesn't give that same experience.
