It won’t be wrong to say that Karan Johar’s upcoming romantic-drama Ae Dil Hai Mushkil is one of the most awaited films of the year. I mean, come on! What’s not to look forward to? Not only is it KJo’s comeback as a director after a six-year hiatus but even the cast is kickass. While I do agree that the whole idea might look clichéd to many, personally, I am all for romance and sizzling chemistry. Hello, it has Anushka, Ranbir and Aishwarya, so I, for one, cannot wait for the movie to release.
Moving on, the film has landed in a lot of trouble even before its release. Ever since the Pakistani artists’ ban, the makers are on their toes. MNS’ threat to stop the release of all films with Pak artists is giving the makers sleepless nights. While only time will tell what’s going to happen in the end, a behind-the-scenes video of the film has been doing the rounds on social media.
To say that it’ll make the wait for the film a lot tougher would be an understatement. The highlight of this video, however, is the man himself – Karan Johar. The video shows a new side of the talented man. We have seen his funny side, emotional side, and even his sarcastic side (don’t forget all the Twitter banter with his enemies) but this video shows Johar in action as a director. The way he executes each scene with perfection is a treat to watch. What’s more, the way he actually does a scene to teach his actors is even better!
Did we tell you that Ae Dil Hai Mushkil also has Shah Rukh Khan and Lisa Haydon in cameos roles? Yup, they’re there!
In fact, the behind-the-scenes video reveals more details of the film than the trailer itself. Don’t believe us? Check this out:
#1 Looks like Aishwarya Rai is even more graceful off-screen! Just look at her all calm and composed, while Karan is busy trying to make a point! It’s safe to say that we’ll get to see Aish’s elegant avatar all throughout the film.
#2 No, this isn’t KJo’s evil laugh. Or maybe it is! Who knows?! No doubt about the fact that he kept all his lead actors on their toes. The outcome of which will be some really amazing performances.
#3 KJo has not just directed the film. He has even enacted some scenes to teach the actors. Sheer finesse, I tell you!
#4 Expect some classic Kuch Kuch Hota Hai and Dilwale Dulhania Le Jayenge type scenes in ADHM as well.
#5 A team that works together, reviews the scenes together. Talented opinions = perfect shots
#6 We can also expect a lot of travelling/walking sequences. Don’t you just love those walks of introspection?!
#7 We will get to see a lot of picturesque locations including London, Austria, Vienna, Paris, Rajasthan and Mumbai.
#8 Expect a fair amount of Ranbir Kapoor’s physical acting too. (Remember Ranbir in Barfi? Something on those lines with dialogues. Even better!)
#9 Some very intense romance and high-on-drama scenes between Anushka Sharma and Ranbir Kapoor should be expected.
#10 With such meaningful quotes, we are sure there will be many memorable dialogues that will stay with us.
#11 While the trailer does not show the trio sharing a frame together, we might just get to see them together in the film for an elaborate scene. *fingers crossed*
Last but not the least, here’s the BTS video:
