After years of having an inclination to work with her, Karan Johar final had the opportunity to direct Aishwarya Rai Bachchan in his 2016 film Ae Dil Hai Mushkil. Arguably, it was the best that the Miss World 1994 has looked on-screen. Moreover, fans were not just bowled over by the scintillating chemistry between Aishwarya and Ranbir Kapoor but were also captivated by the 46-year-old actress' charismatic performance as poetess Saba Khan. On a variety of occasions, KJo has gushed about Rai and how he had a tremendous time collaborating with her.

The Peacock Magazine's September 2019 issue was an ode to Aishwarya Rai Bachchan: A Timeless Star as they celebrated 25 years since the actress was crowned Miss World. Karan was amongst the chosen few to say kind words about the actress and the filmmaker was extremely affluent with his praises. "Aishwarya exudes spectacular beauty and immense grace! Her poise and perfection as an artist has always been her mainstay and she continues to rule the hearts of millions across the world," Johar gushed.

"I have had the pleasure of directing her and it will always remain an indelible experience of my career," the 48-year-old director shared with Peacock Magazine.

Anonymous : Ash fans are so retards. They believe every lie their liar goddess feeds them. This flop actress has been out of Bollywood for 10 years. Her three comeback attempts were failures and she was kicked out by the audience. But her fans still think she's the most popular actress, how silly can they be. They should really educate themselves before opening their illiterate mouths and making fun of themselves.

Anonymous : Ham Queen's fans throw the blame of her lack of talent on directors. They're saying that Indian directors don't know how to take advantage of Ham Queen's talent lol. Ham Queen was kicked out of Hollywood because of her plastic face and lack of talent. She got many Bollywood movies by rubbing the backs of men but most of them are flops. Only 3-4 of her movies are hits that too because of the male costars. Indian directors have exceptional actors like Tabu, Kangana, Vidya, Rani, Kajol, Konkona Sen who give excellent acting in all movies. But Ham Queen throws the blame of lack of talent on directors. Why doesn't she make a movie herself in which she can showcase her "talent" as much as she wants to?

Anonymous : Aunty Ash trying to show that she can pair with young actors. First a cameo with Ranbir and then a cameo with Rajkumar Rao. Aunty thinks doing this will make her equal to Salman, Aamir, Akshay, Ajay, and Shahrukh who act with hot young women. Those men look nice with young women. Aunty Ash looked like aunty of those young men.

Anonymous : Aishwarya fans are psycho to think that Karan Johar needs to use a has-been flop actress's name to bring in the audience. Aishwarya is a flop actress whose own movies fall flat at box office. Karan Johar is one of the most successful director and producer who has made the biggest hits since 1998. He has no need for Aishwarya's plastic face and terrible acting.

Anonymous : Aishwarya taking credit for other's work as usual. She's saying that her 5 minutes cameo was the reason the movie was hit. What happened to Jazbaa, Sarabjit, Action Replayy, Raavan, Umrao Jaan, Sarkar Raj, Kuch Na Kaho, Kyun Ho Gaya Naa, Aur Pyaar Ho Gaya, Aa Ab Laut Chalein, Provoked, Choker Bali, Albela, and other third grade movies she has starred in? She was the heroine in all these movies and they all flopped.

Anonymous : The only portion of the movie which was watchable was when Aishwarya was on screen. It was pathetic that her role was short. Her role was not fleshed out and despite that she came out as the only good thing in the movie. Indian directors have no clue on how to use ARB’s talent and screen presence. Her time is better spent working with Mani Ratnam and hopefully some new age visionaries. Beyond doubt people love her and Priyanka as they are both SELF MADE powerful talented women.

Anonymous : Aishwarya is a directors actress. If you look at her body of work you can see her acting varies drastically. In choker Bali , iruvar , Kandukondain Kandukondain she is good but in movies like jazbaa, sarbajit and many many more...she’s is terrible....my hunch is she still needs a lot of input from her directors to tone down her penchant of overacting and thats not something a natural born actress usually will need
