Bollywood actors Fawad Khan and Anushka Sharma will be seen as lovebirds in Karan Johar's upcoming film "Ae Dil Hai Mushkil." The "Kapoor and Sons" actor will play the character of a DJ, while Anushka's character will belong to a royal family.

"Anushka and Fawad are from Karachi, who meet each other in a foreign country. Fawad is a DJ while Anushka comes from a nawabi family," a source told the Deccan Chronicle. Fawad will have a supporting role in the film, but Anushka is one of the lead actors along with Ranbir Kapoor and Aishwarya Rai Bachchan.

"The two falls in love abroad but once they come back to Karachi and Fawad approaches Anushka's family to ask for her hand, he is ridiculed for belonging to a lower class... a bhand (jester or entertainer) by profession, and sent away... A dejected Anushka leaves her home too," the source added.

Whether the two unite or not, fans would have to wait for the movie to release to know the answer. Speculations were rife that "Ae Dil Hai Mushkil" is love-triangle of Ranbir, Anushka and Aishwarya. But, according to the recent reports, Anushka and Fawad have their own love story.

However, it had also been reported that the KJo directorial is about a man (played by Ranbir) falling in love with an older woman (played by Aishwarya). People will get to see fresh chemistry between Bollywood's new on-screen pairs – Aishwarya-Ranbir and Anushka-Fawad.

Scheduled to be released Oct. 28, KJo is making his directorial comeback after three years with "Ae Dil Hai Mushkil." Produced by Dharma Productions, the flick's shooting has taken place in London, Vienna and also in Rajasthan, India. The team is currently on a break and would reportedly shoot next in Mumbai.
