In a recent conversation with Bharti Singh and Haarsh Limbachiyaa on their YouTube channel Bharti TV, Aayush recalled that he and Arpita had been dating for a few months when he met Salman at his home in Galaxy Apartments. 

Aayush disclosed that one late night, he was dropping Arpita home when she invited him inside for a movie and dinner. Initially hesitant, Aayush eventually was at Arpita's residence. Around 1 am, as they were watching TV and dining, and unexpectedly, Salman Khan arrived.

Recalling the incident, Sharma said, “He entered the house and I was standing behind him. And all I could think of was Pyaar Kiya Toh Darna Kya. He turned around and I immediately introduced myself, ‘Hi sir, I am Aayush Sharma’. He was also startled and he said ‘I am Salman Khan’. And after this, I left."

The Antim actor said, “Salman bhai asked me about my earnings (Tum kamaate kitna ho?). I said, 'I make nothing. My father sends me money and I am living off that'. I said, 'Yes, there is money in the house but I don’t earn'. He looked at me and Arpita and said ‘This guy is too honest’. He immediately said, ‘I like this boy, shaadi pakki'." 

Aayush also disclosed that until his meeting with Salman Khan then, he had not even told his parents that he was dating Arpita Khan.
