The beauty of time is that it can take you by surprise. 18 years ago, Ranbir Kapoor was just another fan smitten by the beauty of former Miss World Aishwarya Rai. This year, Ranbir will be romancing the now married Aishwarya Rai Bachchan in Karan Johar’s Ae Dil Hai Mushkil. 

As Kapoor turns 34 today, a file picture of the actor posing with Rai Bachchan went viral online. This was taken during the filming of the Rishi Kapoor-directed Aa Ab Laut Chale, which starred Rai Bachchan and Akshay Khanna, while Ranbir assisted his dad on the film.

As seen here, Ranbir was lucky to get clicked with his arm around the former Miss World. Ranbir was 16 then, and Rai Bachcha is eight years senior. Who would have thought that one day the chubby Ranbir would be romancing the beauty queen on the silverscreen.

Rai Bachchan is married to Abhishek Bachchan and they a have daughter named Aaradhya. Despite the age difference, fans have warmed up to the chemistry between the two actors. Ae Dil Hai Hai Mushkil will release on 28 October 2016.
