It was on this day in 2009 that Saif Ali Khan and Deepika Padukone starrer Love Aaj Kal had hit the theatres. The film, which marks 10 years of its release today, was helmed by Imtiaz Ali. In the film, Saif and Deepika played two commitment-phobic youngsters and successful professionals. Now as we all know, Sara Ali Khan is gearing up for Imtiaz Ali’s next co-starring Kartik Aaryan which is touted to be 2nd instalment of Love Aaj Kal.
During his recent conversation with Hindustan Times, when Saif actor was asked if he’s happy his daughter Sara is taking the legacy forward. 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.”
“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,” Saif added further.
Saif also mentioned that he doesn’t think Aaj Kal will take off from where the first one left off. “I don’t see it as a continuation. 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.”
