Karan Johar’s dream project Ae Dil Hai Mushkil is cast has been finalized with star Ranbir Kapoor, Anushka Sharma and Aishwarya Rai Bachchan as the contract between them is signed. But the love interest of Mrs. Bachchan is missing.
Rumor has it that Karan Johar has been mesmerized by the Pakistani actor Fawad Khan in Khoobsurat and is thinking to cast him against the world’s most beautiful woman- Aishwarya Rai Bachchan.
Ae Dil Hai Mushkil is said to be near KJo’s heart, and he would want his audience to experience his feelings through this film the way he felt it. It’s an unconventional love story.
When asked about the film he said, “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.”
He decided to cast Ranbir and Anushka against each other when he saw their chemistry in ‘Bombay Velvet’ but he couldn’t get a right fit for the Queen of Beauty until he recently came in contact with Fawad Khan’s work.
Fawad Khan is famous as the ‘Shah Rukh Khan’ of Pakistan and has gained his popularity in India with his TV series ‘Zindagi Gulzar Hai’ and ‘Humsafar’ on recently launched Zindagi channel that is trying to connect the boundaries of the two nations and merge into one.
KJo saw his performance in Khoobsurat and was so keen on casting him against Aishwarya Rai Bachchan.
The movie will start shooting around mid-year this fall and will be shot in New York, Paris and New Delhi. It will be releasing next year around June 2016.
With this attractive pair, we would like to see the on-screen chemistry between the duo for which KJO is so excited.
