Clearing prolonged speculations about Fawad Khan's role in his next venture Ae Dil Hai Mushkil, filmmaker Karan Johar said he has a 'special' role for the Khoobsurat actor in the movie.
In a recent interview with a webloid, Karan also shared his excitement about working with the 34-year-old actor, reports the Express Tribune.
"I have to say that I was most excited working with Fawad who has a very special role. It's a special appearance in Ae Dil Hai Mushkil. But it's a very strong role, a very pivotal role. His energy is indispensable to the film. I am so glad that he agreed very graciously to be a part of the film. In fact, it was wonderful of him to say yes because it was a special appearance. It's very important for his character to connect and be a part of the journey for you to kind of understand the emotional existence of the film," said the ace director.
Speaking about the female actors of the film, he said, "Working with Anushka and Aishwarya has been one of the most incredible experiences."
The film, which also stars Ranbir Kapoor, is scheduled to release in October 28.
