"Even now I can't stand before a mirror and act. Even if I'm dressed up, or waking up in the morning, I am not looking at myself. I guess if you always know that you're going to be an actor, you become ready for speculations, people's interest in your life, and public scruti.. moreny that comes with the job.
I don't think I was prepared for that, one bit, when it happened. I still don't know how to react to complements, autograph seekers… It's very complex. I just wanted to be someone with a certain standing (in society)."
Anushka Sharma in a talk with Mayank Shekhar talks about the mysteries surrounding her!
"Of course, it’s a small matter that Ranbir Kapoor’s nuanced performance was one of the most extraordinary portrayals of a leading character well in touch with his feminine side. Look at the film again — look at his babydoll dance; his bag when he’s at the airport (d.. moreid anyone even notice?); his gait at Alizeh’s wedding; the mehendi on his hands; his pretending to be a bride; his easy tears; his non-embrace of a macho indifference in the face of tumult. Karan Johar’s obvious influence is strong here, but it’s easy to miss when you’re looking for ways to rip apart a Bollywood love fantasy. In fact, it has been reduced to characterising Ayan as a man-child. Five years ago we would have said 'kitna rota hai, ladki ke jaise'. Irony?"
"I won't say if I am satisfied but yes, I am definitely very happy. I think being satisfied is a very dangerous place for an artist to be. Early in my career, I used to feel the need to be satisfied. It was a time when I was constantly restless. But now as I've matured profe.. moressionally,I have realized that being satisfied isn't a good thing.
At this point in my career, I should not be satisfied. Because if I do, there is going to be a big fall. And it's quite easy to slip into that zone of comfortable contentment – I am aware that I am surrounded by people who aren't going to stop me if I am become easily content which is exactly why I want to keep going."
Alizeh, a heart-warming and uplifting track, defines the beautiful bond of love, friendship and everything that comes in between.

The soulful voices of Arijit.. more Singh, Ash King and Shashwat Singh make this one of the most delightful songs of the album.
"The way we speak in real life, that’s conversation. The way people in a certain kind of movie speak, that’s dialogue. Both kinds of exchange are present in Karan Johar’s Ae Dil Hai Mushil. The film opens with a gun-to-the-head dedication to the army that doesn’t fee.. morel all that misplaced. Romance, after all, is its own kind of war. Borders are breached. The heart mounts a defence. There’s the scoping out of territory, which is what the Urdu-couplet-spouting poet Saba does with wounded-in-love Ayan."
"Ae Dil Hai Mushkil is by far Karan Johar's best film to date: mature, sure-handed and thoroughly entertaining. It employs the devices of mainstream Bollywood, but does so with an acute awareness of exactly where to draw the line so as not to stray into overt bubblegum territory. "
"You usually come away from a Karan Johar movie dreaming of singing sweet tunes in the Alps; but ADHM makes you realize just how cold it is, up there. Go watch it for a relatable portrayal of modern-day relationships."
"As evident by his body of work, filmmaker Karan Johar has a sweet spot for this attribute -- the rapture and anguish it prompts around individuals, how it dictates their impulses. But he accomplishes it maturely and memorably in a passionate ode to matters of the heart, as .. morehe knows it, in the splendidly romantic and richly satisfying Ae Dil Hai Mushkil."
