WEB DESK: A few days back there were reports making rounds on the media that Fawad Khan’s role in his next Bollywood outing Ae Dil Hai Mushkil has been extended from a cameo to a supporting one due to his stellar performance in his latest release Kapoor and Sons.
Ever since we got to know this, we were eager to know more details of the heart throb’s role in Karan Johar’s upcoming film.
The upcoming film also stars Anushka Sharma, Ranbir Kapoor and Aishwarya Rai Bachchan in lead roles.
A source close to the film unit has revealed that Fawad and Anushka will essay Pakistani lovebirds in the much awaited flick of the year.
“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,” Deccan Chronicle quoted a source as saying.
“The two fall 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.
“You will have to watch the film to see whether they are united,” the source said.
Ae Dil Hai Mushkil is slated to release this Diwali, to be precise October 28.
