How one responds when one is truly in love, is a feeling that comes from deep within one’s heart and this is what ”Ae Dil” is all about.

It depicts the passion, desire and vulnerability that one experiences while being in love.

Any tips to the upcoming young generation.
Relationships are conditional but true love is unconditional; it is an unbreakable connection of the souls, and if found, it makes one’s life worth living. It is that positive energy that can be an antidote to any negativity in life, and gives rise to that electrifying bond between two people that never fades, never dies – it is forever, it is perpetual and it is eternal. Love is the only language, only religion, only feeling, only subject which can unite two souls, so in this life touch someone’s heart and love someone truly completely unfathomably.
