Sara Ali Khan and Kartik Aaryan are all set to shine on the big screen together, for the first time ever in Imtiaz Ali’s Love Aaj Kal. The film is a sequel of the 2009 film of the same name starring Saif Ali Khan and Deepika Padukone, and thus there have been many comparisons between the two films.
Reacting to the comparisons, Sara said that she is ready to take risks but she hopes that people do not compare the two films. "I respect every opinion that comes my way. But I hope people don't compare it with the 2009 film. We are in the movies and ready to take risks. I am not here to please the whole world. So, I go with what feels right to me” the actress told Mid Day.
The Simmba actress also revealed that she signed the film without even reading the script. “I had asked Imtiaz sir why we weren't calling it Love Aaj Kal 2; he explained that the concept is relevant and timeless. The idea is that love means different things for different generations” she shared.
Sara also talks about her character, Zoe, in the film, as she says: “Zoe [her character] represents the financial and emotional independence of women. In the trailer, she walks up to her love interest and questions him why they aren't sleeping together. Women talking about sex has become important because you are bringing the focus on their desires."
Meanwhile, the audience cannot wait to see Sara and Kartik’s chemistry in the film. Directed by Imtiaz Ali, Love Aaj Kal 2 is all set to release on Valentine's Day on February 14, 2020.
