When Karan Johar felt Aishwarya Rai was the ONLY star on the sets of Ae Dil Hai Mushkil
Aishwarya Rai Bachchan working with Karan Johar in his pet project Ae Dil Hai Mushkil was like a dream come true for the director. He always wanted to work with the actress but nothing could be worked out initially. So when Karan offered her a role in this upcoming movie, the actress was more than willing to bag it. Ash is known for having an aura around her and she did mesmerise everyone on the sets making someone like Ranbir go weak in his knees. In an interview with a leading daily RK Jr, has metioned that on their first day together he was nervous to go and approach the actress. The first time she walked on the set, he asked Karan, “What should I do? Should I go and say hello to her?”
Karan too didn’t differ on this with the star. The director is anyways floored by Ash and her grace. So when she was entering the sets on day one, Karan felt like she is the only star in the film. He was quoted saying, “There was so much build-up about Ash coming on set. To me, it felt like she is the only star in the film. I am not undermining my love for Ranbir and Anushka (Sharma), but when Aishwarya walked in, I was like OMG… one star has finally come on the set.”
So did Ranbir have a tough time romancing Ash since he was so smitten by her and she was indifferent to all this and the actor says, “Yes. When you meet Aishwarya, her eyes glitter. She doesn’t have to try , she doesn’t have to do anything, yet, at the same time, she does a lot.”
However this does not mean that Karan didn’t pay any heed to Ranbir or Anushka on the sets. In fact the director was so impressed with the actor and his professionalism that he feels Ranbir is the easiest actor to work with. Going ahead with this, Karan was heard praising the star by saying, “He’s always on time, knows his lines and brings the X factor to every scene. Usually , I have three `Wow’ moments on a set, this time I had around 20.” So when you have someone like Karan praising your good scenes, you better know how to use it to fullest. RK Jr and Anushka would then joke with Karan and ask him to pay them 10 pounds every time they gave a good shot. Seems like the ADHM star cast indeed had a blast while shooting for the movie and it is evident since we have already seen them in behind the scenes video.
