Karan Johar is currently busy shooting for Ae Dil Hai Mushkil with Ranbir Kapoor, Anushka Sharma, Aishwarya Rai Bachchan and Fawad Khan.
Speculation is rife about the plot of the film and it has been rumoured that it will be similar to Teesra Aadmi. However, Johar has denied these reports. The director recently admitted that Ae Dil Hai Mushkil was an emotionally draining film as it was a story about love.
A source told Catch that the film will be an Indo-Pak love story which will see Anushka Sharma essaying the role of a Muslim girl from Pakistan and Fawad Khan playing a DJ. The source said:
