Filmmaker Imtiaz Ali has revealed the title of his romantic drama film “Love Aaj Kal” was earlier “Elastic”.

“‘Window Seat’ was the working title for ‘Tamasha’. For ‘Jab We Met’, the working title was ‘Train’ and for ‘Love Aaj Kal’, it was ‘Elastic’,” the 44-year-helmer told reporters here last evening at the trailer launch of “Tamasha”.

To this actress Deepika Padukone jokingly said, “So it would be like Saif Ali Khan and Deepika Padukone in ‘Elastic’.”

Imtiaz has worked with both Deepika in “Love Aaj Kal” and Ranbir Kapoor in “Rockstar”. This time the trio are coming together for “Tamasha”, which will hit the screens on November 27.

“I had a great experience working with them. It is a learning experience for me as a director, when I work with good actors like them,” he added.

The “Highway” director believes in focusing on his present films.

“There is no pressure on me as a director for a film. I don’t worry about my previous film. I work towards giving my best for the film that I am working on,” he said.

Maddock Films’ Dinesh Vijan has produced films that include Being Cyrus, Love Aaj Kal, Cocktail, Go Goa Gone and Finding Fanny. Reserved, unless he’s promoting a film, we caught Vijan celebrating the audience’s overwhelming appreciation of his latest outing, Badlapur , and managed to get some insights into the man and his process.

How do you chose your projects?
I have to be emotional about them. We generally don’t seem to accept that the audience will accept atypical content. This is a misconception. I choose stories that resonate and don’t initially look at figures. This keeps the film pure. After it’s canned is when my insecurities surface. I wonder what mad dog bit me to make stuff that is considered risky or niche and I analyse how to pitch it to the right audience.
