Did you know that Love Aaj Kal (2007) was Saif Ali Khan’s first production? Are you aware of the famous person Florence Brudenell-Bruce (Saif’s onscreen girlfriend in the film ) dated? Or who among the cast left Bollywood and went back to pursue education? Well, if your answers are in negative then look no further. Here are some unknown facts about the Imtiaz Ali directorial that successfully raked in moolah at the box office.

1. The film for the longest time was called Production Number One and then it was renamed Aaj Kal. It was later titled Elastic, before it finally became Love Aaj Kal.

2. Saif wanted Kareena Kapoor Khan to be paired opposite him, but Imtiaz wanted Deepika and decided to go ahead with his choice.

3.Interestingly, Imtiaz offered the film to Deepika during her modelling days, even before she was signed for her Bollywood debut, Om Shanti Om (2007). But, then Deepika wasn’t keen on acting, and Imtiaz had told her that once she is ready, she can join the film.

Did Saif Ali Khan suggest Rishi Kapoor’s name for an event?

Saif apparently asked organisers of an event to approach Rishi

Recently Saif Ali Khan was offered to be part of an event where he was going to address students. It was kind of a Ted Talk, which was supposed to be held abroad. However Saif could not do it. A source says, “Saif was apparently keen to be part of it but had some other commitments. So he said to have suggested Rishi Kapoor’s name. He thought Rishi will be perfect choice for this event.”

Saif is currently shooting for Nikhil Advani’s Baazaar, which stars Chitrangada Singh, Radhika Apte and Vinod Mehra’s s son Rohan. The film went on floor last month. Meanwhile it is said that Saif was also going to be part of another event out of India. However he could not take part in it as he had to host IIFA awards. It was recently announced that he will be co-hosting the show with Karan Johar and Varun Dhawan in New York next month.

Apart from this Saif has also wrapped up shooting for Chef and Kala Kandi.

Beta, sweater pehno!

What are the odds of Saif Ali Khan prancing about in a sweater that Rishi Kapoor wore in the same year, romancing the same heroine? As your friendly neighbourhood Bollywood trivia scavenger, I am more than happy to answer that.

So there’s this off-white sweater with large maroon, blue and green spheres that Kapoor, championing the cause of knitted fashion since forever, sported in a lake scene of Saajan Ki Baahon Mein (1995) co-starring Raveena Tandon. It’s one of those rotten movies you think you’ve forgotten about until they return to haunt you on YouTube.

Now I’ve watched the lovey-dovey Chaha Toh Bahut in Harry Baweja’s Imtihaan (1995) way too many times to get it wrong. As suspected, Saif is wearing the exact same jumper whilst cozying up to Raveena before a campfire in the concluding bit of the melody.

Wonder if their common love interest noticed any similarity and pointed it out to either of her co-stars.

Saif Ali Khan’s Hum Tum: Lesser known facts

Posted in Movies with tags , , , , , , , , on June 8, 2015 by saifalikhanonline

Hum Tum is a fun-filled film and has several hidden references to Rishi Kapoor’s yesteryear hit Bobby. Rishi plays Saif Ali Khan’s father in the movie and is seen humming the song, ‘Main shayar toh nahi.’ Also when Rishi Kapoor meets Kirron Kher in the film, she tells him that he can call her Bobby. However the actor retorts saying that he would call her Dimple. It was Dimple Kapadia who played the title role of Bobby in the film.

Hum Tum is loosely based on Hollywood film When Harry Met Sally. Aditya Chopra had reportedly announced that he was planning remake a Hollywood film, starring Shah Rukh Khan and Kajol in the lead roles with Rani Mukerji in a supporting character. However, the outcome was completely different with Hum Tum being Saif Ali Khan’s solo hit starring Rani in the lead role. The film was directed by Kunal Kohli.
