It’s a dream to work with Aishwarya, Ranbir Kapoor

For the first time Ranbir Kapoor is sharing screen space with actress and former beauty queen Aishwarya Rai Bachchan and the hunk said that it is his dream to work with the Bachchan bahu. His relationship with Ash dates long back and they still are good friends.

Talking about his equation with Aishwarya, Ranbir admits, “It’s a dream to work with Aishwarya. I was an assistant on the sets of my father’s Aa Ab Laut Chalen (Ash starred in the film) and I was so enamoured by her — it wasn’t just her looks — but because at the time, she levelled with me and acted like a friend”.

Seventeen years on, that relationship hasn’t changed. Says RK, “I still have that relationship with her and we are like friends. I can still tell her anything now, like I would back then. We are still the same. There’s no ‘Oh, she’s Aishwarya Rai, the legend.’ I really value her as an actor, as a person and the star that she is.”

Ranbir and Aishwarya teamed up for the first time for Karan Johar’s ‘Ae Dil Hai Mushkil’ and the couple plays lovers in the film. “Of course Aishwarya (Rai Bachchan) and I play each other’s love interests in the film.”, he shares.

He adds, “It is a love triangle, in a way.” Leaked images from the sets has brought the pair much praise, despite initial apprehensions given their age difference. Ranbir maintains, “I’m just glad that people have liked her pairing with me. And I am happy that apprehensions have now been put to rest.”
