In an interview with Filmfare magazine, Ranbir said, “Aishwarya has been a friend. When I was 13, and assisting my dad in Aa Ab Laut chale, she was the heroine. We struck a good rapport. We spoke a lot, we’d talk movies. She was working on Hum Dil De Chuke Sanam those days. She was excited about working with Sanjay Leela Bhansali.”
He further added, “Through the years, I’ve met her often through Sanjay at family gatherings and also when she married to Abhishek. There has always been a connect. She’s exceptionally professional. She has an aura of a superstar, someone who has a mystery around her but is also at the same time, friendly. She is a pleasure to work with and she is such a support. Never did she throw her weight around or come late on the sets. Never did she have a problem with her dialogues. When I forgot my lines, she was patient. She gave me respect as an actor.”
Directed by Karan Johar, ADHM is releasing on October 28.
