Imran Abbas and Fawad Khan roped in for ‘Ae Dil Hai Mushkil’


Pakistani actor Imran Abbas who made his Bollywood debut last year opposite Bipasha Basu in Vikram Bhatt’s ‘Creature 3D’, has been roped in for a role in Karan Johar’s ‘Ae Dil Hai Mushkil’.

The upcoming film also stars Aishwarya Rai Bachchan, Ranbir Kapoor and Anushka Sharma. The movie is currently being shot in London and the dashing actor has joined the sets there, as per reports.

Imran’s Pakistani contemporary Fawad Khan will also be seen in a cameo role in the film. Earlier, only the names of Aishwarya, Ranbir and Anushka were revealed as the cast of ‘Ae Dil Hai Mushkil’. There were rumours that either Fawad Khan or Saif Ali Khan will also be cast to play a character opposite the former Miss World.

This will be Imran’s third film in Bollywood. His second film ‘Jaanisaar’ opposite debutante Pernia Qureshi released in August this year. Directed by Muzaffar Ali of ‘Umrao Jaan’ fame, the film failed to create an impression.

Former adult star-turned-Bollywood actress Sunny Leone is also cast in the film. She will be seen seducing Ranbir’s character.

Aishwarya who is currently busy promoting her comeback film ‘Jazbaa’ will soon join the cast and crew after the film releases on October 9.

Karan whose last directorial was ‘Student of the Year’ in 2012 is returning to the director’s chair after a gap of three years with ‘Ae Dil Hai Mushkil’. The film is a romantic triangle love and heart break story and is set for initial release on Diwali next year.
