The trailer for Imtiaz Ali’s much-awaited film Love Aaj Kal, starring Sara Ali Khan and Kartik Aaryan, dropped on Friday. The upcoming film is a sequel to Imtiaz’s own 2009 hit romantic-comedy movie by the same name.
Now, Sara’s father and actor Saif Ali Khan, who starred in the original film, has reacted to the new trailer.
While interacting with TIE, Saif wished luck to Sara and the new Love Aaj Kal team, also cheekily admitting that he liked his own film’s trailer more.
Saif said, “I don’t know why I still remember shooting for Love Aaj Kal. I saw the trailer, and obviously, I wish them all the best. I wish Sara the best for everything she does because she is my daughter. I kind of like my film’s (Love Aaj Kal with Deepika Padukone in 2009) trailer more. What to say, but I wish them all the best.”
As soon as the comment came, people started commenting on how they agreed he was right and even appreciated his savage, but honest reaction.
The movie follows a similar pattern as the previous film, telling the love story of two pairs of individuals across different timelines. While the older film was set several decades apart, the new one has its timelines closer to each other, with the one taking place during current times and the other placed in the 90s.
Love Aaj Kal marks the first onscreen collaboration between Sara and Kartik. It is set to release on February 14 (Valentine’s Day).
