In an interview with Vogue India, Virat Kohli opened up about his marriage and relationship with Anushka Sharma. Talking about his favourite role played by Anushka, Virat had said, “Her role as Alizeh in Ae Dil Hai Mushkil continues to be my all-time favourite. She played that character not just effortlessly, but with a conviction that made me fall in love with her even more. Anushka is clear about what she wants to do and how she wants to do it. She gives 100 per cent to any project.”
Apart from Ranbir and Anushka, the film also starred, Aishwarya Rai Bachchan and Fawad Khan with special appearances by Shah Rukh Khan, Lisa Haydon, and Imran Abbas. The film's soundtrack won four Filmfare Awards in January 2017 and the movie went on to gross ₹237.56 crore (US$32 million) worldwide, becoming a commercial success.
On Thursday, Karan posted a video on Instagram, and wrote, “Of love, friendship, heartbreak and everything in between! The power of ek tarfaa pyaar grows stronger with all your love and passion too. A film, a story, an album, a cast & team that is close to my dil (red heart emoji) #5YearsOfADHM.”
