Speculations are rife that filmmaker Imtiaz Ali is gearing up to direct a sequel to his 2008 blockbuster Love Aaj Kal.

Sara Ali Khan, who made her acting debut with Abhishek Kapoor’s Kedarnath (2018), and Sonu Ke Titu Ki Sweety (2018) fame Kartik Aaryan were reported to be finalized to play the lead pair in the movie.

However, if fresh reports are to be believed, Sara Ali Khan has opted out of the project. Though no one exactly knows what led her to bid goodbye to Love Aaj Kal 2, some insiders reveal it happened due to issues with the script.

Sara Ali Khan’s father Saif Ali Khan, who played the male lead in the original film opposite Deepika Padukone, was also rumoured to be joining hands with Imtiaz Ali after more than a decade. But the actor later went on to deny the news.

With Sara backing out of Love Aaj Kal 2, it will be interesting to see who Imtiaz casts next.
