The recently released teaser of Ae Dil Hai Mushkil, starring Ranbir Kapoor, Anushka Sharma, Aishwarya Rai Bachchan and Fawad Khan received a mixed response from the audience. However the title track is being loved by all. There has been a news doing the rounds that Shah Rukh Khan has done a cameo in the film.
After days of unconfirmed speculation, Karan has finally confirmed he has directed Shah Rukh in a scene of Ae Dil Hai Mushkil. At the Toronto International Film Festival, Karan spoke about his bond with SRK, “Shah Rukh and I have an amazing working rapport. I haven’t directed a film with him in the last seven years, but he did a scene for me recently in a film that is going to release in Diwali and after seven years when I directed him, I realized nothing had changed. He knew exactly what I was expecting of him and I knew exactly what he was going to do.
Ranbir who was the lead actor of the film turned around and said, 'What you guys have is like an aspiration for an actor to have with a director', which is a complete understanding of each other as artists and I think we have tremendous respect, great regard and a solid friendship that may have been through its own journey, but the eventual result is that bond that is unshakeable.”
Shah Rukh Khan was a part of Karan's first four films, but didn't collaborate with him in his last directorial, Student of the Year. There are reports that SRK will play the husband of Aishwarya Rai Bachchan.
