Clarifying his statement on Sara Ali Khan's Love Aaj Kal trailer, the actor's dad and Jawaani Jaaneman star Saif Ali Khan stated that he was just trying to crack a mildly competitive joke. Agreeing that it is a 'completely different movie', he added "The producers have chosen the same name and I am quite possessive over our film. I don’t want to come across the wrong way because of course what I said was a joke". The actor claimed that the only reason he gave such a remark was because he wanted to 'tease' his daughter a little.
While the original film released back in 2009, the sequel is all set to hit the ticketing counters on February 14, 2020. Speaking about the film faring well at the ticketing counters, he stated that there is 'relevance' in every generation and that the idea is that every time the 'language of love' changes, it can be remade.
And while the comparisons between the old and new versions of Imtiaz Ali's Love Aaj Kal are inevitable and opening up about the same in the previous interview, Saif jokingly stated that he liked his version more. Adding to this, the Jawaani Jaaneman actor said that it is not right to compare the two films as they are completely different from each other, built on a concept that can be revisited differently with each generation.
At the trailer launch of Love Aaj Kal, Sara said that their film was not a sequel, but a fresh take on how love has changed over the years. She said that comparisons were inevitable and the team of the 2009 film did a fantastic job portraying what love was, back then. However, she added that their Love Aaj Kal was a different story with new characters.
