If you were among those who woke up on Tuesday under the spell of the first teaser of Ae Dil Hai Mushkil, then welcome to the club! The 93-second long first look of the film is surely set to give the fans sleepless nights, firstly for its brilliant title track sung by Arijit Singh. And secondly the powerful ensemble cast of Ranbir Kapoor, Aishwarya Rai Bachchan and Anushka Sharma. But hold your horses, for there is one face who has managed to sweep many hearts even if in just two frames of the teaser. We call him Fawad Khan and this is more than a fan’s love letter.
It has already been a great year for the Pakistani heartthrob at the Indian box office. Fawad Khan has emerged a winner with Kapoor & Sons, earlier this year. Known for his dreamy looks and oh-so-expressive eyes, director Karan Johar is cashing on Fawad’s signature charm in the small glimpse of Ae Dil Hai Mushkil too. Karan has time and again said that despite a cameo, Fawad, who plays a DJ, is set to make a very strong and special appearance in KJo’s latest directorial. Understanding that the Fawad fever is far from dying anytime soon, the Dharma Productions are making the most of his massive female fan following on both sides of the border.
With that bearded look and unkempt hairdo, Fawad is making his followers skip a heartbeat. While his killer smile in one frame is forcing us to pause the teaser and stare at our screens, his fierce look in the other is making us curious about his cameo. The production house shared some stills of each actor. And we cannot keep our eyes off Fawad!

Hands down, the Aishwarya-Ranbir-Anushka trio is stealing every frame of the teaser. It is majorly playing around Ranbir’s love story with the two ladies, Arijit Singh’s voice is adding to the depth of the romance. But Fawad is the icing on the cake! The film is not exactly a love triangle. It rather explores the friendship, heartbreaks and one-sided love. Can we miss the dialogue of Ranbir in the end – “Ek tarfa pyaar ki taaqat hi kuch aur hoti hai. Auron ke rishton ki tarah yeh do logon mein nahin batati. Sirf mera haq hai ispe. (There is some charm in one sided love. Like other relationships, it does not get divided between two people. Here, I have the soul right on it.)”
If you thought these were the thoughts of only Fawad fans, hear us out. The actor started trending on Twitter based on just a few glimpses in Ae Dil Hai Mushkil trailer. These tweets are a proof of the Importance of Being Fawad Khan in Bollywood today.
