The teaser of Ae Dil Hai Mushkil is out and it’s breaking the Internet. Everyone is already in love with Ranbir Kapoor, Anushka Sharma and Fawad Khan, but it’s Aishwarya Rai Bachchan who is THE bomb.com! For me, she was the most intriguing part of the teaser and thankfully, Karan Johar gave us an insight into her character with this interview he did with Raja Sen for Rediff.com. Here’s what he said about the women in Ae Dil Hai Mushkil –
They’re complicated, without saying too much. And they are immensely progressive characters. I know that Aishwarya has never, ever played a part like this. She plays a poet who isn’t a very good poet, and so she is aware that she isn’t as respected in her community of poets. This is partly because she is too beautiful to be taken seriously and because she isn’t a great poet. She comes from a situation of heartbreak herself.
Anushka comes from a dysfunctional family. Everyone has a broken hearted situation in some way. I have to say, though, that they are both incredibly strong and complex women characters, while being completely different in terms of character goals.
In addition to this, there are rumours that Shah Rukh Khan plays the role of Aishwarya’s husband who is dead. Maybe that’s the cause of her heartbreak? What do you think? Tell us in the comments below.
