Ranbir Kapoor will be seen next in ‘Roy’ which he has reportedly done a guest appearance in. However, the actor has a few releases forthcoming including Karan Johar’s ‘Ae Dil Hai Mushkil’ in which he will be seen with Aishwarya Rai Bachchan. He says he’s excited to be working with her for the first time.
Talking to TOIin an interview, Kapoor spoke about the project, “Karan and I were discussing another film which he was to make and he felt that he must offer that to another actor, but suddenly, he returned from New York and called me to say, ‘I have a new story. I have written it in a week’s time and am extremely excited about it.’ Even after being Karan Johar, he is still childlike about the stories he wants to say.”
“He narrated the story to me in his house, it was beautiful and I was doing it. So I will do Karan’s film before Ayan’s film. Karan has a stellar cast. I am so excited to work with Aishwarya Rai Bachchan for the first time and again with Anushka,” Kapoor continued.
On working with Bachchan, Kapoor divulged, “I knew Aishwarya since I was a child, as I was an assistant in my father’s film Aa Ab Laut Chalen.I was only 15 then and in Class X, but Aishwarya and me struck a friendship. We would chat about her and her life and she would treat me her age. She would treat me like a friend and not like a child and was good to me. Even now, she is exactly the way she was then. There is nothing that has changed about her. Apart from her beauty and her achievements that the world already knows, to me, she will always be the girl who hung out with me on my father’s set.”
‘Ae Dil Hai Mushkil’ will also star Anushka Sharma but Kapoor and her will be seen for the first time together in Anurag Kashyap’s ‘Bombay Velvet’.
