After a long wait, Karan Johar has finally zeroed down on a story and the cast of his next directorial venture. Being one of the most celebrated film-makers of the country, we have always awaited Karan’s films with bated breath, being true Karan loyalists. So this piece of news is definitely going to mark a reason to rejoice for many! After striking a chord with the youth with his last flick, Student Of The Year, Karan is now all set to enthral the audience yet again. Only this time, his film isn’t just another conventional love story or love triangle.

Titled Ae Dil Hai Mushkil (ADHM) and starring Ranbir Kapoor, Anushka Sharma and Aishwarya Rai Bachchan, this one’s going to be based on the theme of love and conflict.

Karan Johar asserts that Ranbir and Anushka’s ‘undeniable chemistry’ in the upcoming flick, Bombay Velvet (which also happens to be his full-fledged Bollywood debut), ‘warranted another film’. So once he finalised the story, they were the first people he turned towards as potential leads for his film. Also, according to Karan, ‘Aishwarya’s character in the film is possibly the most unusual and contemporary character that has ever been played by the veteran actor till date’. The music for this film will be handled by Pritam Chakraborty and shooting will take place in New York, London, Paris and parts of Delhi. Karan also adds:

“Everyone I know has been through intense love and heartbreak and ADHM is a film that deeply resonates those emotions.”

I already cannot wait for Ae Dil Hai Mushkil!
