He also expressed how crafting the film and working with actors was memorable for him.

Karan stated, “I got to know and understand “the Ranbir process” and deeply respect it…. He never let his homework or his hard work apparent to anyone … I got to know and love him as a person and appreciate his detachment from stardom or movie star trappings… his child like portrayal of a broken hearted lover went beyond the written word… Anushka and him were such a treat to direct … they have mutual friendship and respect which transcended from personal to celluloid perfectly! Anushka is pure hearted and that always come through on screen..”

Karan also thanked the film’s composer, Pritam, and lyricist, Amitabh Bhattacharya, and wrote, “I always wanted to direct Aishwarya and she gave Saba so much dignity , poise and beauty ! Will always be immensely grateful to her for accepting to play the part instantly and with so much love and team spirit ..I look back at the days of filming ADHM with a big smile and a cathartic heart … the music will live on and I can take no credit from the magic and genius of Dada and Amitabh … Is film ke zikar ka zubaan pe swaad rakhna ….”

Helmed by Karan Johar, the film starred Ranbir Kapoor, Anushka Sharma and Aishwarya Rai Bachchan in the lead roles.

‘Ae Dil Hai Mushkil’ marked the comeback film of director Karan Johar in 2016 after four years.
