Filmmaker Imtiaz Ali who has given several hits like Rockstar, Jab We Met, Highway, Tamasha and many more has finally dropped another teaser of his next Laila Majnu, titled laila Majnu – Tales by Imtiaz Ali. In the 1min, 29 seconds teaser we see Imtiaz put forward a very strong question about love. He starts by talking about the classic love tales that are still talked about and then wonders what makes them so special to still carry it along. He then talks about how every generation tells the new generation that love is what used to be in their generation and not what is there in the present. And that the new generation knows nothing about love. “I don’t believe that love belongs to a previous generation, I believe that love belongs to every generation,” Imtiaz opened up in the teaser.
He strongly believes that even in today’s generation Laila and Majnu still exist. The teaser ends with, “Humari kahani likhi hui hai (our story has been written).” Imtiaz had earlier shared a poster of the film and captioned it, “Excited to recreate the epic love story, Laila Majnu with master storyteller Imtiaz Ali. Balaji Motion Picture, Imtiaz Ali’s Laila Majnu. Laila Majnu on May 4″.

If reports are to be believed, the film that was earlier supposed to release on May 4 will now hit theatres on August 24.
