Aishwarya Rai & Ranbir Kapoor in an Upcoming Romantic Drama

Couple of months ago, Karan Johar had announced his next venture Ae Dil Hai Mushkil. It  is a romantic drama film written, directed and produced by Karan Johar. The film stars Aishwarya Rai Bachchan, Ranbir Kapoor and Anushka Sharma in the lead roles along with Pakistani actors Fawad Afzal Khan and Imran Abbas Naqvi. Saif Ali Khan has a cameo in the film. Also there were rumours that Sunny Leone would be seen making a special appearance but she rubbished these rumours.

The unusual and ‘hatke’ onscreen pairing of Aishwarya Rai Bachchan and  Ranbir Kapoor created a buzz amongst movie buffs and critics alike. Another interesting pairing in this film is that of  Anushka Sharma and Fawad Afzal Khan. This would also be the first time Karan is directing Aishwarya.

Though the story of the film is yet to be known, there are rumours that the film is a remake of Doosra Aadmi (a film starring Rishi Kapoor, Neetu Singh and Rakhee) . The plot of the film is kept strictly under wraps.

The movie also marks the comeback of Karan Johar as a director after a long gap of four years.

Speaking about the film in an interview with The Times of India, Karan Johar says

…it is not a conventional love story or love triangle. It’s a film that dwells deeply on relationships, heartbreaks and how love completes you, defines you and yet leaves you wanting for more. I have never had, in my entire career, a film that has come to me so fast, so organically and so from within.

About his casting, Johar stated that he was motivated to cast Ranbir Kapoor and Anushka Sharma in the film after getting to know them by acting with them in Anurag Kashyap’s Bombay Velvet (2015).

Also a new set of pictures featuring Aishwarya and Ranbir shooting in Austria were leaked online. All this has increased the curiosity for the film.

The movie is set for a Diwali release.
