Saif Ali Khan and Deepika Padukone starred in the original Love Aaj Kal back in 2012 directed by Imtiaz Ali. Fast forward to 2020, Sara Ali Khan starred in the remake of this film with Kartik Aaryan. While Saif’s film is still considered as one of the audience’s favourites, Sara Ali Khan and Kartik Aaryan starrer failed to impress the audience.

However, not letting it affect them, Sara and Kartik accepted the audience’s decision with utmost respect. In his recent interview, Saif Ali Khan revealed that he asked Sara if she was okay after the reviews came out. He also advised her that she has to go through this. He says she’s smart and tough so she gets things well. It would have been a nice fatherly notion to hold her hand and walk her through this, however, he chose not to do so and let her make her decisions.

On the work front, Sara Ali Khan will next be seen in Coolie No. 1 and Atrangi Re.

Yeh Dillagi to Jawaani Jaaneman, why does Saif Ali Khan always run away from love?

Jab bhi koi ladki dekhoon… yes, we know the drill.

Hindi cinema has given us several specimens of the quintessential ‘hero’ – from the angry Vijay to the romantic Rahul – and several others in between. In today’s Monday Masala, however, we’re focussing on a sub-breed – Mr Casanova, immortalised by Saif Ali Khan.

Ashiq Awara (1992), Parampara (1993), Imtihaan (1994) – Saif started off with complex stories but Ole-ole-ed into fame only with Yeh Dillagi (1994), as Vikram ‘Vicky’ Saigal. Since then, he has played several versions of the same character – someone who is reluctant or unable to commit to a woman or a career or both, but someone who always comes around, by the end, with great difficulty and a change of heart, when he finally falls in love.

Think the spunky Deepak Kumar in Main Khiladi Tu Anari the same year, or the outright douche Rahul Modi in Kya Kehna (2000), Saif went from an adorable chocolate boy to the bad boy you’re warned against but you invariably fall for. Even within the pious universe of Hum Saath-Saath Hain (1999), Vinod Chaturvedi was described as ‘rangeen swabhav wale’ – putting it as mildly as possible.

Saif Ali Khan: I’m not going to look like an old man for a while

Posted in Interview with tags , , , , , , on March 20, 2020 by saifalikhanonline

Your last film, Jawaani Jaaneman, was a fresh spin on the stereotypical father we’ve seen in the movies. How did you merge your on-screen avatar with your real-life role?

I didn’t, actually. My on-screen avatar wasn’t really much of a father. Fatherhood came to him as a surprise and the heroism of the character was in accepting the tremendous responsibility that suddenly came upon him. To look after the girl, Tia, who turns out to be his daughter, and let her stay with him, is what makes Jazz a hero. In real life, fatherhood is all about being present.. about love, respect and closeness. A father is a guide and an anchor in his children’s lives. They should be able to come to you whenever they need to, you should be able to help them wherever they need help.

It must be encouraging for you as an actor and producer that the film was accepted by the audience. It reinforces the fact that our cinema is finally coming of age.

Cinema is circular in its growth and has links with the economy. For a while, we lost the plot, but now, there is a huge renaissance across platforms. Not only are we being offered lovely roles, but my generation and the one after mine can now think as actors. Earlier, to survive as human beings, we had to structure our lives as normal people. But now, we can immerse ourselves completely in a role and everything else becomes secondary. That’s an important change. It’s the age of the actor and we can now push the envelope. We’ve been doing it all along, but now it’s becoming the norm.

Sara Ali Khan reveals Saif Ali Khan said after proclaiming he liked his Love Aaj Kal trailer more

Posted in Saif Ali Khan with tags , , , on February 10, 2020 by saifalikhanonline

Sara Ali Khan and Kartik Aaryan are sending their respective fans into a mini meltdown as they are spotted almost every day promoting their upcoming film Love Aaj Kal. The film, which is a sequel to the original Love Aaj Kal starring Saif Ali Khan and Deepika Padukone, has generated a huge buzz and die-hard fans have been waiting for the film to hit the screens. However, as soon as the film’s trailer dropped, fans could not help but draw comparisons to Saif and Deepika’s original love story. In fact, Saif had even gone on record and said that he liked his 2009 film’s trailer much more.

Kartik and Sara were recently quizzed about the same and the actress revealed that her father did not know why he said that. Saif, who has no qualms about being right or wrong, apparently called up Sara after his comments on Love Aaj Kal’s trailer went viral and said, “I don’t know why I said that,” the actress revealed in a press conference.

On the other hand, Kartik said, “That everyone is possessive about their own films. We all like our own films. So, we also think that our trailer is better.” He hilariously added, “Ghar ki baat hai. It’s all in fun and games.” Check out their adorable video below:

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

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.

‘It’s daunting to be here’: Sara Ali Khan on comparisons with Saif Ali Khan’s ‘Love Aaj Kal’

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.
