A wave of unusual pairing of co-stars has hit the industry. After her comeback in Jazbaa, where Aishwarya teamed up with Irrfan Khan, she will be seen next in Ae Dil Hai Mushkil with Fawad Khan.
In this contemporized version of Sagar Sarhadi’s 1977 quadrangular drama Doosra Aadmi, Aishwarya steps into the role of a woman who has lost her beloved and sees a reflection of her dead lover in a much younger man whom she meets many years after the tragedy. Unfortunately, the debonair dude, played by Rishi Kapoor in Talwar’s film and Ranbir in Karan Johar’s film, is already engaged elsewhere.
While Neetu Singh had played Rishi’s girlfriend in Doosra Aadmi, Anushka Sharma plays Ranbir’s lover-girl in Ae Dil Hai Mushqil. In Doosra Aadmi the role was played by Shashi Kapoor. Giving nothing away Aishwarya says,
“It is a very interesting role, and my first for Karan Johar. We’ve come this close to working together so many times in the past. This time I had to say yes. It is not a conventional romantic lead. Just wait and watch.”
Do you think he choose a good pair, that is Karan Johar?
