Making fans “relive the romance of the 90’s”, the makers dropped a video that shows a striking similarity between Randeep’s character and that of Rishi Kapoor’s in the Love Aaj Kal of 2009. Like Rishi’s character, Randeep too narrates his love story settled in Udaipur. While he was called Raghu back in his youth and is later referred to as Raj, his school romance played by Arushi Sharma is similar to that of Kartik’s love for Sara or so Randeep claims at the beginning of the video. Randeep has his own share of a whirlwind romance-cum-separation which leaves Sara in tears by the end of the story narration. A clean-shaven Kartik essays the role of Randeep’s youth in the movie.

Love Aaj Kal is gearing up for its big release on Valentine’s Day. The buzz around this Imtiaz Ali directorial is high because of the chemistry between Kartik Aaryan and Sara Ali Khan. The two were strongly rumoured to be dating each other for a long time and that has now made the audience excited about their bond in the film. The film is a sequel to Saif Ali Khan and Deepika Padukone starrer Love Aj Kal (2009).
The recently dropped trailer of the romantic flick shows how the emotion of love remains the same in a time gap of 30 years, during which the movie straddles two different love stories. Imtiaz, in his signature style, explores the expression of love which has constantly changed over time while the emotion remains the same. Making one unlearn all preconceived notions of love by bringing the emotion alive in its most raw and nuanced form, Imtiaz’s upcoming film, yet again, leaves the characters and audience introspecting about how to tackle the ever-changing dynamic of being in and finding love.
The movie also features Randeep Hooda, perhaps as Sara’s other lover. The movie is bankrolled by Dinesh Vijan and Imtiaz.
