Karan Johar was always wanted to work with Aishwarya Rai Bachchan. And when he offered her to cast in ADHM, it was a dream come true moment for KJO.
Aishwarya Rai Bachchan with her blue eyes and good looks, is so attractive that she mesmerise everyone by her presence. Similar things happened on the sets of ADHM.
This is what KJo quoted about Aishwarya
There was so much build-up about Ash coming on set. To me, it felt like she is the only star in the film. I am not undermining my love for Ranbir and Anushka (Sharma), but when Aishwarya walked in, I was like OMG… one star has finally come on the set.
He was asked that if Ranbir faced a tough time romancing Ash since he was so smitten by her and the actor says,
Yes. When you meet Aishwarya, her eyes glitter. She doesn’t have to try, she doesn’t have to do anything, yet, at the same time, she does a lot.
Going ahead with this, Karan added,
He’s always on time, knows his lines and brings the X factor to every scene. Usually, I have three `Wow’ moments on a set, this time I had around 20.
Also, in an interview with a leading daily Ranbir mentioned that on their first day how he was nervous to go and approach the actress. The first time she walked on the set, he asked Karan,
What should I do? Should I go and say hello to her?
