Imtiaz Ali’s Love Aaj Kal completes 10 years today. A decade back, on this day the movie which had a fantastic cast of Saif Ali Khan and Deepika Padukone was born and made a memorable mark in the life of everyone. In the movie, we saw how two people who had commitment phobia, in a tech-driven world begin to understand the importance of wedding post they separate. Now after 2009, Imtiaz is going to make a second installment of the film with Saif’s daughter Sara Ali Khan and Kartik Aaryan named Aaj Kal.
Now in an interview with Hindustan Times when Saif was asked on whether he was happy that daughter was taking the franchise ahead he said,“I don’t think Love Aaj Kal is my legacy at all. I don’t think of it as Sara taking the franchise forward. That’s an interesting thought, which I hadn’t thought before. I think if anything, it’s Imtiaz’s franchise and his legacy that perhaps he is taking forward, I was just a part of it.”
He further said, “If Sara is a part of it, I see no relation between the two movies. Maybe that’s because I don’t view the profession as legacy-based. I just think she is a really interesting personality on-screen. Sara is very smart and got her own lovely ideas about things, so it’s refreshing to talk to her,”
When asked about if he sees whether Aaj Kal will set off from where it left he said, “I don’t see it as a continuation,” says Saif, “If it had been, I think that’s a producer’s thought, and I probably would have produced it for her or something like this. That’s just no how it has come about. Imtiaz should probably try and make one of these every 10 years, calling it ‘Aaj Kal’ with different actors! I am hoping it is a different story, though.”
