Karan Johar arranged for a special screening of Ae Dil Hai Mushkil for his celebrity friends and industry colleagues. Positive feedback has been pouring in on social media ever since.
Likes of Arjun Kapoor, designer Prabal Gurung and Neha Dhupia among others have been tweeting how beautifully made film ADHM is. The positivity around the film is more than welcome considering the kind of controversies it was battling with for quite some time.
Ae Dil Hai Mushkil focuses on three characters — Alizeh (Anushka Sharma), Saba (Aishwarya Rai Bachchan) and Ayaan (Ranbir Kapoor) — and has unrequited love as its central theme. Although, Saba and Ayaan's onscreen chemistry is being played up and marketed as "the angle" to watch out for in the film, ADHM is really Alizeh and Ayaan's story.
"I just took nine days to write the film. I was in New York and while walking around the streets, I was thinking about the pain a person goes through when one-sided love happens. I have gone through that pain. The story of Ae Dil Hai Mushkil talks about this side of a love story," Johar told the media when asked what made him return to the director's chair after over three years.
Meanwhile, here's what the stars have had to say about Johar's latest work:
Kareena Kapoor Khan told the media: "I have watched Ae Dil Hai Mushkil and loved it. All actors, whether it's Ranbir Kapoor or Anushka Sharma or Aishwarya Rai Bachchan, everyone has done such a fantastic job. I think the audience is going to love the film. This is Karan's best."
