Anushka will shoot one scene with Aishwarya in ‘Ae Dil Hai Mushkil’

For Anushka Sharma, sharing screen space with another Bollywood heroine in Karan Johar’s ‘Ae Dil Hai Mushkil’ is nothing new as she has already appeared alongside Katrina Kaif in ‘Jab Tak Hai Jaan’ and Priyanka Chopra in ‘Dil Dhadakne Do’.

In ‘Ae Dil Hai Mushkil’, Anushka will be a parallel lead along with Aishwarya Rai Bachchan in the film which also stars Ranbir Kapoor.

“It’s not a love triangle, per se. But I am looking forward to and am excited about working with Aishwarya. I’ve loved her since I was a kid. When Karan told me that it would be Ash, Ranbir and me in the film, I almost jumped in excitement,” said the ‘Band Bajaa Baarat’ star.

“I play one of the leads in the film and have much more screen time than what I had in DDD, where I wasn’t one of the main characters. But in ‘Ae Dil Hai Mushkil’, I am one,” the actor added.

In ‘Jab Tak Hai Jaan’ and ‘Dil Dhadakne Do’ Anushka had several scenes with the lead heroine, but in ‘Ae Dil Hai Mushkil’, she doesn’t have too many scenes with her co-stars, Anushka’s co-actor in the Karan Johar directorial Aishwarya confirmed.

“Anushka and I do not have much to do together in the film. We have very few scenes together. Probably just one scene,” the former Miss World revealed.

‘Ae Dil Hai Mushkil’ is the first time Karan will be working with Aishwarya. “I have always wanted to work with Aishwarya, but have missed working with each other on several opportunities,” the filmmaker said.

He further added that he had first offered Aishwarya ‘Kuch Kuch Hota Hai’, but she was doing ‘Jeans’ at that time. Then he thought Kajol, who had just got married would not be able to do ‘Kabhi Khushi Kabhie Gham’, and again things didn’t work when Karan wanted to cast Aishwarya in ‘Kabhi Alvida Naa Kehna’.

“It has been a hit-and-miss scenario with her and this time we hit it and it is a very special role” Karan said.
