Mumbai: The recently released teaser and the title track of Karan Johar’s ‘Ae Dil Hai Mushkil’, starring Ranbir Kapoor, Anushka Sharma, Aishwarya Rai Bachchan and Fawad Khan have received a good response from the audience. While the controversy surrounding Kamaal Rashid Khan's audio clip have recently made headlines, one of the other news related to the film doing the rounds has been that Shah Rukh Khan has done a cameo in the film.
After days of unconfirmed speculation, Karan has finally confirmed he has directed Shah Rukh in a scene in ‘Ae Dil Hai Mushkil’. At the Toronto International Film Festival, Karan spoke about his bond with Shah Rukh, “Shah Rukh and I have an amazing working rapport. I haven’t directed a film with him in the last seven years, but he did a scene for me recently in a film that is going to release in Diwali and after seven years when I directed him, I realized nothing had changed. He knew exactly what I was expecting of him and I knew exactly what he was going to do.
Ranbir who was the lead actor of the film turned around and said, 'What you guys have is like an aspiration for an actor to have with a director', which is a complete understanding of each other as artists and I think we have tremendous respect, great regard and a solid friendship that may have been through its own journey, but the eventual result is that bond that is unshakeable.”
Shah Rukh Khan was a part of Karan's first four films, but didn't collaborate with him in his last two directorials, 'Student of the Year' and one part of 'Bombay Talkies'.
It would now be interesting to see if he is indeed going to play Aishwarya Rai Bachchan’s husband, as the reports suggest.
