Karan said, “I just took nine days to write the film. I was in New York and while walking around the streets, I was thinking about the pain a person goes through when one-sided love happens. I have gone through that pain. The story of Ae Dil Hai Mushkil talks about this side of a love story.”
He even told how the story would be different if a woman would’ve directed it. Karan states, “I am trapped in my feminine side more strongly, so I don’t think it would have made any difference if the film was directed by a female.”
He adds, “I am matured enough to tell a story from both perspectives. In fact, I represent women more than men in my stories.”
Karan even spoke about the success of ADHM’s music. He quotes, “The collaboration with Pritam and Amitabh Bhattacharya is magical. Their work is not only being credited as a genius but also adds soul to my story. I thank them from the bottom of my heart.“
Karan was questioned why his films are not realistic like Anurag Kashyap. To which he adds, “Though my films talk about romance and the complexity of relationships, people can relate to all my characters and their emotions. Then why do you think they are not real?“
ADHM stars Ranbir Kapoor, Aishwarya Rai Bachchan, and Anushka Sharma in the leading roles. The film is releasing on October 28.
