The famous duo of Love Aaj Kal, Saif Ali Khan and Deepika Padukone will work together in Illuminati Films. Illuminati Films is Saif’s home production with partner Dinesh Vijan.
Imtiaz Ali who had directed Love Aaj Kal has scripted this untitled movie. The movie will go on floors in April 2011 and will be shot in New Delhi, Spain and London. When asked Saif about this he says, “I was waiting for a script as contemporary and relevant as this is to come my way and I agree that this has been worth the wait. The story is funny, romantic and it has a perfect balance of entertainment and drama. I wanted to go for a love story with a modern treatment and sensibility.”
When asked about working with Deepika Padukone, the actor says, “I am looking forward for my pairing with her again. She has a great role and I think she has grown a lot post Love Aaj Kal and she will handle this role very well.”
Imtiaz’a earlier movies Socha Na Tha, Jab We Met and Love Aaj Kal all have delved on relationships about the various choices in life. This movie will be in the same space as Love Aaj Kal left off and the roller coasters from there.
Deepika considers Saif to be her favorite co-star and she has never played such a character before. She says, “To find a script like this, which is quirky and edgy, had an instant connect with me. This movie will also mark the reunion of the LAK team, with Saif, Dinesh and me. I am very excited to be working with Saif again, and I hope we can recreate the magic of LAK once again.”
Dinesh says, “At Illuminati films, Saif and I have always wanted to make projects with diverse genres and stories that we actually believed in. We want to take our time and make content, which the today’s well-exposed audience may like. Imtiaz has given us a beautiful story.”
