Years later, Ranbir finally got to work with Aishwarya. “The experience has been great,” the actor had said while speaking to Fever 104 FM. “Which actor wouldn’t want to romance her? It was a historic moment in my career when Karan told me that he would be casting her. I thought she would say no and wouldn’t act with me.”
Ranbir was the assistant director on Aa Ab Laut Chalen. Speaking about it, he had said, “I have been friends with her since that time. When Aishwarya got married to Abhishek, I spent a lot of time with her during those days as well.”
