Karan Johar's "Ae Dil Hai Mushkil" will have an interesting cast with Saif Ali Khan, Aishwarya Rai Bachchan, Ranbir Kapoor and Anushka Sharma.

If reports are believed to be true, then Saif Ali Khan has joined the cast of KJo's "Ae Dil Hai Mushkil".

A few months back the director-producer met Saif and narrated the story. The "Happy Ending" actor liked the story and agreed to do the film, according to reports.

"The film was offered to Saif a few months back. Karan met him and narrated the story. Saif, at that time, was also going through other scripts and was evaluating his options. Karan's love story caught his attention and after a while he got back to Karan saying he has liked it," Deccan Chronicle quoted a source as saying.

"Ae Dil Hai Mushkil" will be Karan's first project with Anushka and Aishwarya Rai, while with Ranbir and Saif, it will be his third project.

Karan had produced "Wake Up Sid" and Yeh Jawaani Hai Deewani" starring Ranbir and "Kal Ho Na Ho" and "Kurbaan" starring Saif.

Meanwhile, the shooting of "Ae Dil Hai Mushkil" will start by mid-2015 if everything goes well. Karan and Saif will meet again and discuss the shooting schedule soon.

"Karan and Saif will meet again soon to discuss the other logistics and the shooting schedules. Karan is aware that Saif is apt for the role and if all goes well, the shooting should begin mid-2015," the source added.

The storyline will be based on relationships, heartbreaks and love and the shooting will take place in New York, London, Paris and New Delhi. The film will hit screens on 3 June, 2016.
