"Both Barfi! and Rockstar, despite being successes, had a lot of serious undertones to them. While in Barfi! he had to really put himself in a lot of emotional stress, Rockstar didn't even allow him to smile for a large part of the film, leave aside giving him any space to have fun. Yeh Jawaani Hai Deewani seems to allow that. Call it the candyfloss world of Karan Johar films but finally Ranbir is playing his age and is taking a break from roles where he is required to go through a lot of mental and physical stress", says a source attached to the film.
"Anjaana Anjaani had a sad element to it since his character had suicidal tendencies. Ajab Prem Ki Ghazab Kahani was basically a comedy. In Bachna Ae Haseeno he was hardly shown to be in love and was casually flirting around. As for Saawariya, it was about one sided love", comments an observer.
However the makers of Yeh Jawaani Hai Deewani vouch for the fact that Ranbir would be 'loving' like never before while director Ayan Mukerji too has taken a route different from his debut flick Wake Up Sid.
"Well, all I can say for now is that it is a lovely love story", says Karan Johar.
And we were almost expecting the tagline for the film to read – 'It's all about loving your loved ones'!
