I tried really hard, told Aditya Chopra not to cast Anushka in Rab Ne Bana Di Jodi - Karan Johar

Anushka Sharma may have managed to become Karan Johar's lead heroine in his upcoming film Ae Dil Hai Mushkil, but not many are aware that the filmmaker didn't like Anushka when she made her debut in Bollywood.
In fact, Karan wanted to get Anushka replaced in good friend Aditya Chopra's Rab Ne Bana Di Jodi which marked her debut.
In an interview with Rajeev Masand, when Karan was asked about it, he said, "I tried really hard. I told Aditya Chopra not to cast her. He showed me pics of Anushka Sharma and all and I was like 'Are you mad? What are you thinking? During Rab Ne also... she was sitting as a Dulhan and that was her first shot and my mother was feeling bad.. she came and told me 'This poor girl seems lost' . And I was thinking 'Oh god, I will have to be nice to her and poor thing she doesn't know there is no career left after this'. I was shocked Adi wanted to cast her. I used to stare at her thinking what did Adi see in her. But when I saw the film, she was okay. But what blew my mind was Band Baaja Baarat."
Now that he is working with Anushka, one wonders what is the actress' reaction to it. "I am happy that he cast me. He was going to make me go out of the industry. It is an accomplishment."
Well, we quite agree to that Anushka!
Directed by Karan Johar and produced by Dharma Productions, Ae Dil Hai Mushkil also stars Ranbir Kapoor and Aishwarya Rai Bachchan in the lead. The film releases on October 28, 2016.
