Karan Johar’s ‘Ae Dil Hai Mushkil’ is turning out to be a treat for gossip mongers all over B-Town. The film has landed itself in trouble even before it hit the big screen. From all the political controversies around casting a Pakistani actor, to trying to bribe a critic to promote the film, ADHM is trying very hard to find its way out of the mess. But it seems like there is more scoop to it. A keeda close to the project reveals that the part that landed with Shah Rukh Khan was previously given to Saif Ali Khan in the film. But Karan strongly felt that he needed a bigger star to compete with Ajay Devgan’s ‘Shivaay’. Hence, Saif was replaced by Shah Rukh in the film, who has always been a good luck charm for KJo. Karan and Kajol are not on talking terms after the KRK fiasco that Karan had with Ajay Devgan, and after this Saif replacement issue, it seems like Kareena and Saif are also in no mood to patch up with him.
Rumours are rife that Karan was to replace Fawad Khan’s face with that of Saif’s, but those reports are completely false as Saif was only on the sets to shoot for his cameo.
