Love Aaj Kal, starring Saif Ali Khan and Deepika Padukone, was one of the most successful movies of 2009. And as we all know, the director of the movie, Imtiaz Ali, is all set to come up with its sequel, which will star none other than Saif’s daughter Sara Ali Khan and the Sonu Ke Titu Ki Sweety actor, Kartik Aaryan as leads. Now, according to the reports, the makers have also roped in Saif Ali Khan to play an interesting role.
A source confirming the news was quoted saying, “Saif Ali Khan has been roped in to play an important role in the romcom, which will be a sequel to his own hit film with Imtiaz — Love Aaj Kal. This will be the first time that Saif will be sharing screen space with his daughter Sara. It’s not just a cameo but a full-fledged role. He will play the role of Sara’s father on screen as well.”
When makers were scouting for an older hero to step in, Imtiaz immediately thought of Saif. “It was the obvious call he made, given that it is Love Aaj Kal 2 and the core idea of the plot remains the same. Like Rishi Kapoor in the original, Saif, too, will have a prominent part in Sara and Kartik’s relationship here.”
Saying that the makers are busy locking dates, the source further added, “Their combination dates also need to be worked out. So once that happens, Imtiaz plans to roll this film sometime around mid-2019.”
