Aishwarya plays a poetess in the film...
We bet that for past 1 day your news feed on social media platforms is flooding with talks of Ae Dil Hai Mushkil. The teaser for the Ranbir Kapoor, Aishwarya Rai Bachchan, Anushka Sharma starrer film was released yesterday and it managed to steal everyone's hearts. Not much was revealed about the plot or the characters in the short teaser, but it did reveal that the film is going to be one musical and good looking one. Talking to Reddif, film's director Karan Johar revealed many details about the film including attributes of Aishwarya, Ranbir and Anushka's characters.
Talking about the female characters in the ADHM the ace filmmaker said "They’re complicated, without saying too much. And they are immensely progressive characters. I know that Aishwarya has never, ever played a part like this. She plays a poet who isn’t a very good poet, and so she is aware that she isn’t as respected in her community of poets. This is partly because she is too beautiful to be taken seriously and because she isn’t a great poet. She comes from a situation of heartbreak herself." Aishwarya, a poet? Well her eyes are potery enough for fans! Aren't they?
Earlier its disclosed that Anushka's character is named Alizeh. Now divulging more details about Alizeh, Karan says "Anushka comes from a dysfunctional family. Everyone has a broken hearted situation in some way. I have to say, though, that they are both incredibly strong and complex women characters, while being completely different in terms of character goals."
We revealed to you that Ae Dil Hai Mushkil was previously titled Ae Dil. Karan also talked about the name change in the interview. He said "A troubled heart was my working title when I started the film. We then changed it to Ae Dil and it didn’t quite work but Ae Dil Hai Mushkil captures the feeling beautifully." Karan had changed his mind about the title after listening to the title track of the film that has been composed by Pritam. He loved it so much that he decided to go with the full title.

The title is derived from the lyrics of a very popular classic song from the 1956 film CID. The movie starred Dev Anand, Waheeda Rahman, and Johnny Walker. Walker had the title track picturised on him in it and it's lyrics were “Ae Dil Hai Mushkil jeena yahan, zara hat ke, zara bach ke, yeh hai Bombay meri jaan” Talking about the same Karan Johar said "I agree Bombay is a strong part of the original song, but hopefully the new title song will go some way in changing that perception and letting people look at this film differently."
Also you know what? Ranbir's character is inspired by Karan himself. "I told Ranbir that on some level, in some way, you are playing me" Karan said in the interview. He derives the story from his own experience with heartbreak. "Normally I make films through observations that I filter through a dramatic, a cinematic palette. Not this time. I’ve been in love twice in my life and it’s been unreciprocated both times, and in my head I feel that I’m the brand ambassador of heartbreak," he further added.
