Aishwarya Rai Bachchan could have worked with Karan Johar in Kuch Kuch Hota Hai, Kabhi Khushi Kabhie Gham and Dostana – but things didn’t work out.
Now that she is finally working under his stewardship in Ae Dil Hai Mushkil, she is looking forward to featuring in a love story in the filmmaker’s signature style.
“Karan and I have hoped to work together many times and the most beautiful part about Ae Dil Hai Mushkil is that, finally, we are working together. When he narrated the idea to me, I thought it’s wonderful to be telling a love story so different and above all, Karan directing that,” Aishwarya said in a video chat from Cannes with the media.
The film, which will also star Ranbir Kapoor, “will and should have Karan’s signature (style)”, added the actress, who is in the French Riviera as an ambassador of cosmetics major L’Oreal Paris India.
Aishwarya is “looking forward to seeing” what Karan has planned for Ae Dil Hai Mushkil, but said “I don’t know what he has in mind”.
To be shot across the globe – Delhi, New York, London and Paris, Ae Dil Hai Mushkil deals with relationships and heartbreaks. The love story also features Anushka Sharma and the former beauty queen is excited to work with the “wonderful team”.
“It’s a very beautiful love story that Karan will tell in a real way. Again, it’s a lovely team to be working with – Ranbir (Kapoor) and Anushka Sharma,” Aishwarya said.
