Right from the release of the trailer of Love Aaj Kal, it compared with the previous film of the same name. The 2009 film starred actors like Saif Ali Khan and Deepika Padukone in the lead roles. Recently, when Saif asked in an interview about his opinion on the trailer of new Love Aaj Kal, he had confessed that he liked his own film's trailer better. To Saif's confession, Imtiaz Ali reacted in an interview with Mumbai Mirror and said, "Of course, he would. Saif invested in that film. I would upset if he’d said he liked this trailer better.”
The latest Love Aaj Kal stars Saif's daughter Sara Ali Khan and Kartik Aaryan in the lead roles. The concept of the film is the same as before. It'll show the difference between old age and modern-day love among couples. The film will release on Valentine's Day.
Further talking about his equation with Saif Ali Khan, Imtiaz added, "Saif was also the producer of that film while I was the director. But it was usually the reverse, with me telling him not to come late, for example. We had an easy equation, and even in a difficult situation, both of us had a connection because we were shameless enough to not let it bother us.
