The 2020 version also explores two stories set in different time periods.

In a recent interaction Imtiaz Ali said that Sara Ali Khan is the “perfect” choice to play the lead as Zoe.

He said, “Zoe’s character is special to me. She is an emotionally fragile modern-day girl who tries to protect her feelings by being hard on the outside. She is conflicted between her heart and mind, between professional ambition and romantic surrender. ”

Sara has extraordinary emotional intelligence. Her look, voice, diction and overall poise are all impeccable – making her an extremely gifted actor. Also she is completely accessible and remarkably quick to understand. She has all it takes to change the mould of the conventional Indian heroine. I had the greatest time working with her and hope to work with her again and again. She is the perfect choice for Zoe in ‘Love Aaj Kal’,” Imtiaz further added.

The film is slated to release on 14 February, 2020.
