Aishwarya excited to work with Kjo in ‘Ae Dil Hai Mushkil’

Former beauty queen and Bollywood actress Aishwarya Rai Bachchan is excited to work with filmmaker Karan Johar in ‘Ae Dil Mushkil Hai’. In the past, Ash missed many opportunities to work with the ace filmmaker and finally it is happening with ‘Ae Dil Hai Mushkil’ which also stars Ranbir Kapoor and Anushka Sharma in a pivotal role.

In an interview to a leading tabloid the actress said, "When I heard the script of 'Ae Dil Hai Mushkil', it made me smile. For me as an actor, it is exciting to be a part of this story and with Karan, it will be the way it should be told. Thus am happy to be on board,"
Aishwarya will be donning a different role in the film.

Karan is excited to work with the three of them, he said it is his big dream to work with Aishwarya. "Love is the theme and conflict of my next directorial endeavor. When I worked with Ranbir and Anushka in 'Bombay Velvet', I knew their pairing and undeniable chemistry warranted another film and I am extremely excited to direct them. 'Ae Dil Hai Mushkil' also fulfills my big dream to work with Aishwarya Rai Bachchan. It is possibly her most unusual and contemporary character and I can't wait to work with her. It is too early to talk about the film, but for now, all I want to say is that 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," he disclosed.

KJo also revealed he has missed several opportunities to work with Aishwarya. He was supposed to cast Ash in ‘Kuch Kuch Hota Hai’, ‘Kabhi Khushi Kabhie Gham’ and ‘Kabhi Alvida Naa Kehna’ but things did not work out. He said, "I have always wanted to work with Aishwarya. She and I have missed working with each other on several opportunities. I had first offered her Kuch Kuch Hota Hai and at that time, she was doing Jeans. There was a juncture when I thought Kajol would not do Kabhi Khushi Kabhie Gham as she had just got married. But I remember Kajol and I had this emotional moment. She did the film and I landed up not calling Aishwarya. Then at one juncture, I wanted to cast her in Kabhi Alvida Naa Kehna and things didn't work. It's been a hit-and-miss scenario with her literally. This time we hit it, literally. And it's a very special role."

Karan Johar has roped in Pritam to compose the music of ‘Ae Dil Hai Mushkil’.

Karan is currently very excited and can’t wait to start the shooting, “I am excited as hell like a child in a candy store. I am reaching in the morning, bubbling with energy. Sometimes it doesn't matter if your film has taken three years to write or 30 days, it is actually the excitement for the level of material and I am very excited”.

The film will be shot in New York, London, Paris and Delhi and will tentatively hit theatres on June 3, 2016.
