Even if for only one scene, but producer-director Karan Johar couldn't have done without Shah Rukh Khan in his passion project 'Ae Dil Hai Mushkil' that starred Ranbir Kapoor and Anushka Sharma. Khan is currently shooting for Imtiaz Ali's next with Anushka Sharma and if unit murmurs are to be believed, it turns out Ranbir Kapoor will be seen in a cameo in the movie.
A source close to the development informs, "There was a small role which Imtiaz wanted a strong actor to play. Between him and Ranbir, it is never an 'ask situation'. Imtiaz mentioned it to him and RK gave his nod. Ranbir can't say no to him."
The film reportedly traces the life of Anushka's character, who plays a free spirited tourist who falls in love with her guide while travelling with him across Europe, looking for her lost engagement ring. Our source adds that RK will play Anushka's fiancé in the film.
"Imtiaz was mighty impressed with Anushka and Ranbir's chemistry in Ae Dil Hai Mushkil. He wanted a similar friendship and camaraderie to flow between Anushka's character and her fiancé's in the movie. Since Ranbir is busy shooting for Jagga Jasoos, he is yet to shoot for the part but he has given his nod to Imtiaz. He intends to squeeze in time for this after he wraps up Jagga Jasoos and before he starts shooting for the Sanjay Dutt-biopic with Rajkumar Hirani that will need him to look the part – long hair and more muscular."
The film, with the working title The Ring, has been shot over a long schedule across Prague, Lisbon and Budapest. Apparently, Imtiaz was supposed to shoot for a few days in Amritsar earlier this month but the plan was postponed. Both Imtiaz and Ranbir did not respond to our text until the time of going to press. The production house Red Chillies too remained unavailable.
