Fawad and Anushka

MUMBAI: Anushka Sharma and Fawad Khan grabbed eyeballs with their noteworthy chemistry in Karan Johar blockbuster Ae Dil Hai Mushkil but nothing is fishy between them.

Now, the diva has opened up about her equation with the Pakistani heartthrob. In a rather surprising revelation, Anushka told a publication that she had never really been in touch with Fawad in the first place.

“I’d never been in touch with Fawad, to begin with. We only interacted on the set, and that’s about it. So there was nothing new about it, in that sense, after the incident took place,” she said.

The actor further said that having Fawad in the team was a relief. “I remember when Fawad was cast, we all felt relieved because the other person (in the film) just had to be as strong, and it is a cameo, with little space for Fawad’s character (Ali) to reveal his feelings for Alizeh. He had to convey a lot more, merely through expressions,” she added.

On the controversy over Pakistani actors in the film, Anushka said she had not seen it coming. “We didn’t feel it would turn out the way it did. Everybody had worked hard for months on the movie when things were very different, and now we couldn’t have been held responsible for a changed (Indo-Pak) situation.”

“But things between India and Pakistan have always been iffy, so this self-censorship on the part of filmmakers to not work with Pakistani artistes was weird in its own way, no? I wouldn’t want to comment on the issue because it can get misconstrued. And it’s a much larger issue than a film,” she said.

“All I know is that I come from an Army background. My father was in the infantry, I’ve sat next to my mother and seen her glued to the TV screen during the Kargil War when my father would call us once in three months, and we didn’t know where he was. I’ve seen it that close, so I can understand how people must’ve felt. But the issue itself is beyond two people’s conversation on it,” Anushka added.

On the work front, Anushka has been working alongside Shah Rukh Khan on The Ring.
