“Anushka and Fawad are from Karachi, who meet each other in a foreign country. Fawad is a DJ while Anushka comes from a nawabi family. The two fall in love abroad but once they come back to Karachi and Fawad approaches Anushka’s family to ask for her hand, he is ridiculed for belonging to a lower class… a bhand (jester or entertainer) by profession, and sent away… A dejected Anushka leaves her home too,” revealed the source.

The source did not however, disclose the ending of the movie, as to whether Fawad and Anushka would live happily ever after or not.

Fawad Khan was earlier scheduled for a cameo appearance in Ae Dil Hai Mushkil only. However, his role has been enhanced and now he will be seen in a supporting role in the movie, beside Anushka Sharma of course.
