The father-daughter duo of Saif Ali Khan and Sara Ali Khan had the audience in splits with their witty responses when they appeared together on Karan Johar’s chat show Koffee with Karan in December 2018. The unique chemistry was noticed by all, and speculations are rife that the duo will share the silver screen for Imtiaz Ali’s Love Aaj Kal sequel.
And if the rumours are to be believed, Kartik Aaryan is supposed to play the lead opposite Sara, and Saif will play her father. While the director agreed that the film was in the offing, he said the cast was yet to be confirmed.
In an interaction with Bollywood Hungama, Saif Ali Khan however denied the speculations. He said, “It is not true at all.”
Reacting to the rumours, Sara said: “I’d love to do a film with Abba. But, the film and our characters must justify our presence. We can’t do a film for doing’s sake.”
Earlier, Imtiaz Ali had said he planned to start shooting by this year. “As a story idea, it has been with me since a very long time. I’ve been discussing it. In fact, I find there are reflections in the interviews where I’ve said things like that. I’ve been saying that and feeling that perhaps not even as a story but one day I realised there is a story. But I’ve written it like recently.”
When asked on casting Sara Ali Khan, the filmmaker said, “I can’t reveal now since we haven’t announced anything. We are trying to work it out. There’s nothing confirmed now but we are working towards a film. But can’t say anything now.”
