As LoveYatri released on Friday, Shah Rukh Khan congratulated Aayush Sharma, who stars in the film, and his wife Arpita Khan Sharma, in an adorable tweet. The 52-year-old superstar also sent best wishes and heart-felt love to the couple as Aayush officially stepped into Bollywood today. "Extremely glad for Arpita and Aayush Sharma. Love and success to you now and always! #Loveyatri," read Shah Rukh's tweet. Earlier in June, Shah Rukh had given a massive shout out to the teaser of LoveYatri, which was shared by Salman Khan on Twitter. Aayush Sharma co-stars with Warina Hussan in LoveYatri, which also marks the actress' stepping stone in Bollywood.

Salman and Shah Rukh famously feature in the history of top-profile Bollywood friendships - they had a fall out in 2008 and publicly patched up at Arpita Khan's wedding in November 2014. A year later, Shah Rukh had revealed the first look of Salman's Bajrangi Bhaijaan and also had a cameo in Tubelight. Salman Khan is making a special appearance in Shah Rukh's Zero, his film with Aanand L Rai.
