Karan Johar knows how to tug at the heartstrings of his audience. He's done it before with his hit films like "Kuch Kuch Hota Hai" and "Kabhi Khushi Kabhi Gham" and, more recently, "Student of the Year." Now after a long hiatus (four years) as a director, Johar is back with nothing short of a magical love story — "Ae Dil Hai Mushkil." Johar is extremely active on social media and knows how to get the attention of his fans. He started posting teaser tweets days earlier on his Twitter account preparing his followers for the upcoming release of the teaser.
The teaser release has created quite a stir in the film industry. The film has that typical Johar style written all over it. It's a multi-starrer featuring Ranbir Kapoor, Anushka Sharma, Aishwarya Rai Bachchan and Fawad Khan.
Sharma excitedly shared the teaser on her social media accounts, revealing the name and the nose-ring sporting look of her bubbly character in the film, with the hashtag #Alizeh.
Looks like the music again in true Johar style is going to be another highlight of the film. It's soul-stirring to say the least. Kapoor plays a singer in the movie, and the title track is the highlight of the teaser. Sung soulfully by Arijit Singh, the song sits in your head for long and plays in a loop.
Bachchan, who plays a poet, looks smashing in the film. Fawad Khan is not very visible in the teaser, but fans, do not be disappointed — it is said that he has a meaty role in the film.
People are raving about the teaser, and compliments are pouring in from all quarters. From filmmakers to actors and friends, Johar is being inundated with compliments by the film fraternity.
An otherwise tough to please filmmaker Ram Gopal Varma tweeted praises for the teaser, which took Johar by surprise, pleasantly, of course.
With such a warm welcome received for a teaser, one can hardly wait to see what the actual film has to offer. With the story of a one-sided love and passion, the theme and execution of the film makes one wish for Diwali 2016 to come sooner, which is when the movie is scheduled to release.
