'There were instances when Ayush would pick up bad words'
His mother Saili -- a teacher in a Marathi medium school called Abhinav Vidya Mandir -- always accompanies him to his movie shoots. His father is an engineer with the Bombay Port Trust.
Saili is very protective about her son. "During the shoot, there were instances when Ayush would pick up bad words, as there were many slum kids around," she says. "Whenever he heard a word which he had not used earlier, he would ask me, and I would have to explain it to him. Azhar and Rubina improved a lot on the sets."
