Ending months of speculation, actor Kartik Aaryan on Wednesday confirmed his upcoming project with Imtiaz Ali and Sara Ali Khan by sharing the first look of the film. In the picture, we see Kartik and Sara locked in a romantic embrace under streaks of sunlight. Rumoured to be a sequel to Imtiaz’s 2009 hit Love Aaj Kal, the yet-to-be-titled film also features Randeep Hooda. The actor had previously worked with Imtiaz on Highway (2014), co-starring Alia Bhatt.
Love Aaj Kal was a romantic comedy-drama film spanning two timelines, and starred Saif Ali Khan, Deepika Padukone, Rishi Kapoor and Giselli Monteiro in lead roles. The film was produced by Saif Ali Khan and Dinesh Vijan under their former banner Illuminati Films. Dinesh’s solo company, Maddock Films, is producing Imtiaz’s upcoming film, which is slated for release on Valentine's Day (February 14), 2020.
