New Delhi: Ranbir Kapoor and Aishwarya Rai Bachchan.... Wait, this isn't an update on their upcoming film Ae Dil Hai Mushkil. Writer Rumy Jafry shared this throwback picture of the two actors on Twitter and now, it's viral:
- Aishwarya starred in Aa Ab Laut Chalen, directed by Ranbir's father
- Ranbir was assistant director to Rishi Kapoor in Aa Ab Laut Chalen
- Aishwarya and Ranbir will be seen in Ae Dil Hai Mushkil
This picture is apparently from the time when Ranbir assisted his father Rishi Kapoor on 1999 film Aa Ab Laut Chalen (Mr Kapoor's first film as director) which featured Aishwarya Rai. It also starred Akshaye Khanna and Rajesh Khanna. Mr Jafry wrote the film's story and dialogues.
Fast-forward to 2016
Aishwarya, 42 and Ranbir, who celebrates his 34th birthday today, are all set to co-star in Karan Johar's Ae Dil Hai Mushkil. Ever since the release of the film's trailer and song Bulleya, fans cannot stop raving about Ranbir and Aishwarya's fabulous jodi. They indeed make quite a pair in the film and have some pretty bold and unflinching scenes:
Ae Dil Hai Mushkil, releasing this Diwali, also stars Anushka Sharma and Fawad Khan. The Karan Johar-directed film will release along with Ajay Devgn's Shivaay.
