Imtiaz Ali reveals why he is okay with Saif Ali Khan liking 2009 ‘Love Aaj Kal’ trailer better

Posted in Movies with tags , , , , , , on February 6, 2020 by saifalikhanonline

Imtiaz Ali who is gearing up for the release of his film Love Aaj Kal says that Saif Ali Khan’s confessions that he liked the trailer of the original film better starring himself and Deepika Padukone do not surprise him at all. While Sara has been asked to comment on what she thinks about the same, in a recent interview, Imtiaz opened up about his feeling about Saif’s remarks and said that he would have been upset if Saif had said otherwise.

“Of course, he would. Saif was emotionally invested in that film. I would be upset if he’d said he liked this trailer better. Saif was also the producer of that film while I was the director. But it was usually the reverse, with me telling him not to come late, for example. We had an easy equation, and even in a difficult situation, both of us had a connection because we were shameless enough to not let it really bother us,” Imtiaz said speaking about their bond.

Recently, Saif had also come out and cleared the air about his comment saying that a little bit teasing is good. “With my daughter, I tried to crack a mildly competitive joke. I’m saying I kind of liked our more but obviously this is a completely different movie. And I don’t think it’s perhaps right to compare but, of course, the producers have chosen the same name and I am quite possessive over our film. I don’t want to come across the wrong way because of course what I said was a joke. A little bit of teasing is good,” Saif said.

While the original Love Aaj Kal released in 2009, the new Love Aaj Kal will hit the theatres on February 14, 2020, starring Sara Ali Khan, Kartik Aaryan, and Arushi Sharma.

After being incessantly trolled for ‘overacting’ in the Love Aaj Kal trailer and revealing how hurtful the feedback was for her, Sara Ali Khan recently addressed the comparisons that audiences have been making with her father Saif Ali Khan’s 2009 film of the same name. Saif, in a recent interview, had also humouredly commented on how he too preferred the trailer of his film than that of Sara’s.

Sara said that they were not looking to recreate the original film and that she agreed to be a part of the film because of Imtiaz Ali. “I wasn’t looking at replicating the original film. I said yes to the film without reading the script. I had asked Imtiaz sir why we weren’t calling it Love Aaj Kal 2; he explained that the concept is relevant and timeless. The idea is that love means different things for different generations,” she said.

Saif Ali Khan has clarified that he was only joking when he said that he liked the original Love Aaj Kal (which featured him and Deepika Padukone) trailer more than the trailer of the new Love Aaj Kal, featuring his daughter Sara Ali Khan and Kartik Aaryan.

In an interview with The Times Of India, Saif said, “With my daughter, I tried to crack a mildly competitive joke. I’m saying I kind of liked our more but obviously this is a completely different movie. And I don’t think it’s perhaps right to compare but, of course, the producers have chosen the same name and I am quite possessive over our film. I don’t want to come across the wrong way because of course what I said was a joke. A little bit of teasing is good.”

While the original Love Aaj Kal released in 2009, the new Love Aaj Kal will hit the theatres more than a decade later, on February 14, 2020. Both films have been helmed by Imtiaz Ali.

Sara Ali Khan will soon be seen playing the lead in ‘Love Aaj Kal’, whose previous version featured her daddy Saif Ali Khan. The trailer was recently released and Saif stated that he liked his trailer more. Exclusively speaking to ETimes Saif stated that he had tried to crack a joke, “With my daughter, I tried to crack a mildly competitive joke. I’m saying I kind of liked our more but obviously this is a completely different movie. And I don’t think it’s perhaps right to compare but, of course, the producers have chosen the same name and I am quite possessive over our film. I don’t want to come across the wrong way because of course what I said was a joke. A little bit of teasing is good.”

The actor went on to add that ‘Love Aaj Kal’ belongs to a genre which is very popular with all generations, “I do understand that the idea behind the film is that when the minute the language of love kind of changes, one can make this film with every generation. So I’m sure it’s a completely different film from ours. And all the best guys, just a joke.”

Sara and Kartik may no longer be together in real life, but the duo continues to hit headlines with their adorable chemistry evident during the promotions of ‘Love Aaj Kal’. Speaking about the same Saif added, “I think it is very interesting. Both of them are tremendously popular actors. I’m sure you know people are going to flock to see the movie.”

Directed by Imtiaz Ali, ‘Love Aaj Kal’ is slated for release on February 14.

The much-awaited poster of Kartik Aaryan and Sara Ali Khan’s Love Aaj Kal, directed by Imtiaz Ali, was finally out today and as expected, fans are curious to witness the love story Ali has created this time around. Since Ali has used the same title as his 2009 rom-com, starring Saif Ali Khan and Deepika Padukone, comparisons were inevitable.

There was a poster face-off that happened on social media and fans and users were asked to choose between them, and the response and reactions suggest they are more attracted to the new one.

One user wrote- 2nd one is more intense and showing two different emotions. Only Imtiaz sir can do that. A majority of the users unanimously wrote Love Aaj Kal 2.

The film is touted to be a sequel to the first film or at least the sources suggest so. Will Saif Ali Khan make a cameo in his daughter’s film? What different can we expect this time from Ali? Let’s wait for February 14 for answers!

Saif Ali Khan on Love Aaj Kal and if daughter Sara Ali Khan is taking franchise forward: ‘It’s not my legacy at all’

The film Love Aaj Kal, which released on this day 10 years ago, was a respite from run-of-the-mill romantic films. Saif Ali Khan and Deepika Padukone played two commitment-phobic young and successful professionals who keep changing their relationship status and only begin to understand the relevance of marriage and stability after their break-up.

What also made it unique was the fact that the story ran parallel to actor Rishi Kapoor (his younger self also played by Saif) and his on screen (and off screen) wife Neetu Singh’s (younger self played by actor Giselli Monteiro) love story set in the earlier times.
