Ranbir Kapoor and Aishwarya Rai‘s sizzling chemistry definitely set the screen on fire in Ae Dil Hai Mushkil. And their chemistry was fabulous, indeed. However, it did not come easy, as Ranbir revealed he felt quite shy initially. He also said:
Sharam aati thi, mere haath shiver hote the. Kabhi kabhi main unke gaal ko touch karne main jhijhakta tha. Phir unhone hi bola, ‘Listen, what’s wrong with you? We are acting, do it properly.’ Phir maine socha, kabhi aisa mauka milega nahi, so maine bhi mauke pe chauka maar diya!
According to a report in Pinkvilla, the mauke pe chauka comment, it seems, did not go down very well with the Bachchans as they think Ranbir should have kept her senior status in mind. Now in a statement, Ranbir clarified to a leading daily that his comment was taken in bad taste. He said:
Aishwarya is such a superb actor and a also a family friend. She’s one of India’s most talented and respected women. I will be forever grateful to her for her contribution to Ae Dil Hai Mushkil. I could not have disrespected her like that.
