Looks like the nine days left for the film to hit screens will be an awfully long wait. In the film, Aishwarya and Ranbir are cast opposite each other in a love triangle, the third part of which is completed by Anushka Sharma. The nuclear-level chemistry between Ash, 42, and Ranbir, 34, has lit up not just the screen but also social media.
New pictures from the photoshoot, which is for Filmfare, have been Instagrammed by fan clubs.
A single shot of Aishwarya shows the actress in a Manish Malhotra embellished top with ripped jeans.
Social media went into a frenzy almost a week ago when the first picture from the Aishwarya-Ranbir photoshoot emerged.
It hasn't been all smooth sailing for Ae Dil Hai Mushkil, however. The casting of Pakistani actor Fawad Khan, who makes a special appearance in the film, prompted an outcry from some quarters. A group of theatre-owners have said they will not allow the film to release in single screen cinemas across four states.
Director Karan Johar has released a video in which he describes himself as "deeply hurt" to be called anti-national. Karan also insisted that he will "not engage talent from neighbouring country given the circumstances" and urged everyone to understand the sweat and tears of 300 Indians who have worked on the film.
Ae Dil Hai Mushkil, in which Shah Rukh Khan has a cameo, will hit the screens on October 28.
