Sara Ali Khan, who is cast opposite Kartik Aaryan in Love Aaj Kal, said she has never been someone who carefully plans anything, including her career.“I have never really planned journeys. I feel privileged that so early in my career I got the chance to work with the people I really wanted to, whether it is Imtiaz sir or Kartik. I hope each experience I have with different filmmakers enriches me further and adds to my personal bounty of experiences.
“In Love Aaj Kal, we had a journey about love and filmmaking, and I don’t really know which was what. Both filmmaking and love are somewhere down the line a means to discover ourselves. I hope I never stop doing that,” the actor told PTI in an interview.
She is taking forward the story of a film that her father did 11 years ago, but for actor Sara the only thing “circular” about being a part of Love Aaj Kal is that both the films are looking for similar answers on love in different eras.
The 24-year-old actor features in director Imtiaz Ali’s modern take on his 2009 original, which starred Saif Ali Khan and Deepika Padukone.
Sara Ali Khan said the film conveys that while the expression of love has changed over the years, its timelessness is something that will never lose its appeal.
The actor, who started her movie career with 2019 film Kedarnath, said she wants to explore every aspect of being a performer.“As an actor, I’m young and want to discover myself. I want to do diverse films, whether it is a larger-than-life commercial film, or a true hard-hitting narrative. I just want to continue with all of that,” she said.
