Filmmaker Imtiaz Ali, who did miracles with Abhay Deol in SOCHA NA THA, Shahid Kapur-Kareena Kapoor in JAB WE MET in the past, is back with the same magic with his newest film on the block LOVE AAJ KAL starring Saif ali Khan, Deepika Padukone in the lead roles & Rishi Kapoor, Rahul Khanna as the supporting characters. Other cast includes Florence Brudenell, Kavi Shastri, Vir Das, Mandi Sidhu, Elizabeth Tan, Manushka Khisty, Sagar Arya, Dolly Ahluwalia, Rajendranath Zutshi and Dhiru Dwiwedi. Music of LOVE AAJ KAL is composed by Pritam with lyrics provided by Irshad Kamil.
LOVE AAJ KAL is set to have a fresh take on relationships in a language that will appeal to everyone. It talks about how romance was during yesteryears, using ageless lover boy Rishi Kapoor's track and how it is today, with Saif and Deepika's story taking the centre stage. In fact, the film is an interesting amalgamation and superimposition of the two eras!
