Filmmaker Karan Johar has always cast his lucky charm and good friend Kajol in his films. The actress will now reportedly do a cameo in his upcoming flick "Ae Dil Hai Mushkil." Johar has already roped in Fawad Khan, Saif Ali Khan and Imran Abbas Naqvi for special appearances in the film.

Kajol recently made a comeback in Bollywood after five years with Rohit Shetty's "Dilwale." The film featured the evergreen pair of Shah Rukh Khan and Kajol on the big screen after Johar's "My Name Is Khan."

"The principal photography of the multistarrer has been wrapped up, but some major portions are yet to be filmed. There are certain roles that are short but crucial to the script, and Kajol will essay one such character. However, details of the shoot schedule are yet to be worked out since she is also likely to feature in one of the songs," Mid-Day quoted a source as saying.

KJo has always ensured Kajol stars in his films, as he feels she is lucky for his movies. If Kajol is not the leading actress of Johar's flicks, she has made special appearances in them. "Their friendship goes a long way back, so it is not surprising she has agreed to be part of the film. In fact, Karan considers Kajol his lucky mascot and wants her to be part of all his directorial ventures," the source said.

With "Ae Dil Hai Mushkil," Johar is making his directorial comeback after three years. The film also has Pakistani heartthrob Fawad Khan in a special role. Apparently, he will play a hot DJ in the film.

Scheduled to be released Oct. 28, "Ae Dil Hai Mushkil" is being touted as a complicated love story produced by Dharma Productions. The film features Aishwarya Rai Bachchan, Ranbir Kapoor and Anushka Sharma in the lead.

Apart from Ranbir and Anushka's romance, the audience will also see Ranbir and Aishwarya's chemistry. KJo, Ranbir and Anushka have worked together in "Bombay Velvet," and this is their second film together. However, Aishwarya is new to this team.

"Ae Dil Hai Mushkil" is believed to be a love story about a man falling for a woman older than him.
