Ranbir Kapoor is adorable, says Aishwarya Rai Bachchan


Aishwarya Rai Bachchan had a great time working with Ranbir Kapoor in Karan Johar’s ‘Ae Dil Hai Mushkil’ and she expresses her happiness on working with Ranbir for the first time in the following words, she said, “I met Ranbir on the sets after many years. He is adorable. He was assisting Chintu uncle on AALC. Now we are working together. We got along like a house on fire. He has an amazing sense of humour.”

For the first time Aishwarya Rai Bachchan is working with Karan Johar and it was like a dream come true for both Kjo and Ash. “Karan often told me, ‘You are meant to be in my film.’ It didn’t happen all these years. Finally, we are working together,” says Aishwarya.

The actor reveals that Karan first approached her with a role in his debut film, ‘Kuch Kuch Hota Hai’ (1998). “I couldn’t do the movie because I was shooting for Aa Ab Laut Chalen (AALC; 1999). I was on a 40-day schedule in the US. It was Chintu uncle’s (Rishi Kapoor; actor) first film as a director. I’m a fan of his, and I looked up to him. I just couldn’t mess things up with him,” she says.

Karan also approached Aishwarya for ‘Kabhi Khushi Kabhie Gham’ (2001), but things didn’t work out. “He narrated the story and told me about the character, but we didn’t end up working together. We almost worked on another movie, but that too didn’t take off. He narrates stories of most of his films to me… he is family. After hearing this script, both of us smiled. It was special,” says the actor.

Finally, after so many years Karan Johar and Aishwarya Rai Bachchan teamed up for 'Ae Dil Hai Mushkil’ starring Aishwarya Rai Bachchan, Ranbir Kapoor and Anushka Sharma.
