Read In The Slides Below, 10 Interesting Revelations By Karan Johar:
Aishwarya Plays A Poet
"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."
Aishwarya's Heartbreak Situation
"This is partly because she (Aishwarya) is too beautiful to be taken seriously and because she isn't a great poet. She comes from a situation of heartbreak herself," added Karan!
Karan On Ranbir
"I don't know where that floodgate of emotion in Ranbir comes from. There's a pent-up dam and there are little holes through which the emotion leaks out. One day it will burst."
Karan On Anushka's Character
"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."
'A Troubled Heart': The Initial Title Of The Film
Karan says, "‘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."
ADHM Captures Craziness of 'Ranushka'
"The two characters [Ranbir and Anushka] were crazy anyway. They're both Bollywood lovers, grew up celebrating the cheesiness and the madness. A lot of the dialogue was therefore funny because of the referencing."
'No Haha Scene With Aishwarya'
Karan reveals, "With Aishwarya, the dialogue syntax changed -- she plays an Urdu poet -- and her style of speaking was different. There's no haha scene."
No Double Role Of Ranbir
"It's not a double role at all. To the people who have seen his two looks in the film, I just have to say: ‘People shave, dude.' There's so much speculation," says Karan!
Is ADHM Remake Of Doosra Aadmi?
Karan clears the air and says, "The other rumour I've heard is that it's a Doosra Aadmi remake. It's not, it's not a film about infidelity at all."
It's Not KANK As Well
Karan also said that ADHM is not like KANK. He mentioned, "The ‘morality' is not questionable, so to say. Just because a film has four characters, they wonder if it'll be like Kabhi Alvida Naa Kehna. Not at all."
Karan Johar, The Brand Ambassador Of Heartbreaks:
In the same interview, Karan revealed how much he has drawn from his own experience, in the film. He told, "I told Ranbir that on some level, in some way, you are playing me. 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."
"But that is a very identifiable zone for all of us. We've all had our heart broken. And I believe that love, that lost love, powers you in a certain way. I've taken that strength somewhere, and it has completed me in some way."
