love aaj kal trailer launch updates Kartik Aaryan and Sara Ali Khan play Veer and Zoe in Love Aaj Kal.

The trailer of Sara Ali Khan and Kartik Aaryan’s romantic drama Love Aaj Kal is out. Helmed by Imtiaz Ali, the movie is being bankrolled by Dinesh Vijan. Apart from Sara and Kartik, the movie will also feature Randeep Hooda and newcomer Arushi Sharma in significant parts.

Earlier, the director had shared a poster of the movie which featured Sara and Kartik looking romantic and distant at the same time. It was shared with a caption that read, “Meet Veer & Zoe, captured in their element. It’s in these simple, candid moments that love plays peekaboo, right? #LoveAajKal.”

About a decade ago, Imtiaz Ali had helmed a movie which was also called Love Aaj Kal. The film featured Sara Ali Khan’s father and Bollywood star Saif Ali Khan and Deepika Padukone in the lead. Looking at the poster, it seems safe to assume that like his previous venture, this Sara Ali Khan starrer will also narrate a love story set in two different time periods — 1990 and 2020. In the 2020 movie, Sara will be seen essaying a character called Zoe, while Kartik will play Veer in the movie.

According to the makers, the movie will “present a contemporary and relatable portrayal of two stories set in different times that interact to learn or perhaps unlearn from each other the different facets of love, commitment and relationships.”

'Happy with the overall premise'

User @TheAnujRadia tweeted, “The thing is I’m happy with the overall premise... The fact that it’s the female counterpart not chasing the Male. I’m also glad that Imtiaz isn’t portraying a ‘Geet’ within ‘Zoe’, but I was expecting so much more! #LoveAajKal.”

'My only reason to make movies is to tell love stories'

"I don't know what the relevance of love is, but i think everything in the world moves around because of love. When a man and a woman are in love, the universe moves around because of that love. I feel like everybody goes through the same cycle. In some sort of way, I feel this is my way to tell the younger generation what love is and how I see love at my age. My only reason to make movies is to tell love stories. I don't have to put in too much effort into telling that story," says Imtiaz Ali.

Sara and Kartik on comparison with Saif-Deepika's film

"This is Love Aaj Kal. This is not Love Aaj Kal 2. It is not a sequel. Imtiaz sir had clearly stated what love was then with Deepika Padukone and Saif Ali Khan. Kartik is not playing Saif Ali Khan's character. I am not playing Deepika Padukone's character. We are portraying totally new characters, but we are aware that there will be some unnecessary comparisons, and we are okay with that. This film talks about the love of today," says Sara Ali KHan.

Kartik Aaryan adds, "As Sara said, this is a totally new film. We have not carried forward the first film. The film will be compared to that film, more than characters or actors being compared. Even if Imtiaz sir makes another Love Aaj Kal again with us, it will be compared to this one."

"I am excited about Imtiaz Ali’s next because I am in love with Imtiaz sir. He has changed my thought process a lot. I think I am a changed man now. There has been a huge change in me since I have shot for his film,” Kartik told PTI.

“In fact I cried while shooting the last scene with him. That last sequence is extremely emotional. I was really emotional at that time because that journey has been amazing. I am really looking forward to the film,” the actor added.

Imtiaz Ali's last directorial was the Shah Rukh Khan starrer Jab Harry Met Sejal, which also featured Anushka Sharma.
