Bachchan Badly Reacts Bold Scene of Aishwarya and Ranbir
Ae Dil Hai Mushkil (English: “Matters of the heart are difficult”) is an upcoming Indian romantic drama film written and directed by Karan Johar. It features Aishwarya Rai Bachchan, Ranbir Kapoor and Anushka Sharma in lead roles. The film is scheduled for release on 28 October 2016 on the Diwali weekend.
The film was first announced in November 2014. Writer-director Karan Johar said that for the past year and a half, he had been developing a story that he needed to work on for several months. However, while he was in New York, the idea for Ae Dil Hai Mushkil came to him and he wrote the screenplay in 30 days. When he came back to India, he spoke to the three lead actors and they all signed on immediately. 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). He added that he cast Aishwarya Rai Bachchan after several unsuccessful attempts to cast her in his previous films.
Pakistani actors Fawad Khan and Imran Abbas have both been confirmed to be a part of the film. Khan has confirmed that he will be playing a DJ, also commenting that the role is “not exactly a cameo but it becomes a backbone for a certain conflict of a character in the movie.” Reportedly, Abbas will be seen as a boyfriend of Sharma’s character. Actress Lisa Haydon has also confirmed that she will appear in the film, stating that she has “a small but a very interesting role.
