One of the most anticipated films of this year that Bollywood buffs are desperately waiting for is Sara Ali Khan and Kartik Aaryan starrer romantic drama Love Aaj Kal. Well, the film trailer released a few hours ago today, and it looks fun, quirky, and dramatic.
The 3-minute long trailer shows resemblance to the original film of the same name, which featured Saif Ali Khan in a double role, as this one also has Kartik as the male protagonist in two parallel love stories set in two different eras. One love story is set in 1990 (Kal) and stars actress Arushi Sharma alongside Kartik, while the other one is set in 2020 (Aaj) and features Simmba fame actor Sara alongside Kartik.
Soon after the trailer release, Pati Patni Aur Woh fame actor Kartik tweeted on his official handle-
“आना तो पूरी तरह आना...
या तो आना ही मत ❤
#LoveAajKal trailer out now!

Maddock Films’ official handle posted on Twitter-
“1990 se lekar 2020 tak, pyaar same hai, bas andaaz alag hai. #LoveAajKal

Veer, Kartik’s character, is madly in love with his respective heroines of both the eras: Zoe (Sara) and Heer (Arushi). In 1990, it seemed that the love of Heer and Veer does not get the acceptance from the girl’s family. While in 2020, in Veer’s dating life, he falls for Zoe, who has all her focus on the career and does not want to be distracted by emotions and feelings.
Veer tells Zoe in a scene-
"Jiss moment tumhe lage main tang kar raha hun... main chala jayunga."
Sooner but not later, Zoe realizes that she cannot balance her work and personal life and wants to come out of the relationship. This is when Veer sets her free, saying this just like he told Heer in 1990’s love story:
"Ana toh puri tarah aana... ya toh ana hi maat."
Also, one can hear the remixed versions of 2009's Love Aaj Kal songs like Twist and Aahun Aahun.
Well, the rehashed Love Aaj Kal is also directed by Imtiaz Ali and is slated to hit the theatres this Valentine’s Day. It was him who had helmed the 2009 film, which starred Saif Ali Khan, Giselli Monteiro, and Deepika Padukone in lead roles.
