The countdown for the wedding of Arpita Khan, the sister of Bollywood superstar Salman Khan, has begun. But many people are not aware of her beau Aayush Sharma's background. 

Aayush is the son of politician Anil Sharma, a Congress minister in Himachal Pradesh. He is also the grandson of Sukhram Sharma, who won the assembly elections seven times and the Lok Sabha elections thrice in his career.

The groom has been looking after his family's business in Delhi but has recently moved to Mumbai to pursue a career in acting. Aayush has set himself a deadline to make it big in Bollywood and if he could not succeed in his mission, he will return to Delhi to manage his business.

Salman is expected to help Aayush like he did to many other youngsters. The "Dabangg" actor's good contacts are likely to give a boost to the Bollywood aspirant.

Aayush and Arpita fell for each other a few years ago and they turned serious about their relationship in 2013. They informed their families and got their approval without any issue.

The wedding was supposed to happen in 2015 but the plans got changed a few months ago. The date was changed to coincide with the 50th anniversary of Salman's parents, Salim and Salma Khan.

Aayush and Arpita will tie the knot on 18 November at the Falaknuma Palace in Hyderabad. Their wedding will be held as per Punjabi Hindu customs, which includes Mehendi, Sangeet, Pheras, Reception and Post Reception Party.

The grand wedding will be attended by some of the big names from the film industry, politics, sports and business circles.
