Kartik Aaryan Still In Love With Love Aaj Kal Co-Star Sara Ali Khan; Will The Two Get Back Together?

One of the most adorable couples of Bollywood, Kartik Aaryan and Sara Ali Khan sadly had a very short-lived love story. While fans were ecstatic to see them together for the very first time on the big screen, they broke up much before the release of their film Love Aaj Kal. In fact, rumors also suggested that Kartik has moved on and is now dating his Pati Patni Aur Woh co-star Ananya Panday. Well, we have good news for ‘SarTik’ fans! The latest report in Mumbai Mirror states that Kartik is still very much smitten by his ex-girlfriend Sara. It further reveals that spending time together during promotional events has rekindled their romance and passion. Also, news about his growing closeness with Ananya is not to be believed as they are just good friends. However, we will have to wait and watch what final decision the ex-love birds finally take. Sara and Kartik were recently seen on the silver screen in Imtiaz Ali’s much-anticipated romantic drama Love Aaj Kal. While the film tanked at the box-office and received poor reviews from fans as well as critics, it is nice to see that at least their love story might get a second chance.

Kareena Was Excited About Tashan When Shahid Convinced Her To Do Jab We Met; Went Into Depression As The Film Tanked

Ever since her breakup with Shahid Kapoor in 2006, Kareena Kapoor has rarely talked about it. However, in a recent interview with Film Companion’s Anupama Chopra, the actor talked in detail about working with him in Jab We Met, the breakup and how she met her husband Saif Ali Khan on the sets of Tashan soon afterwards. Kareena said that when she was on the sets of Imtiaz Ali’s Jab We Met, she was more excited about working in Tashan. She said she was the lead in Tashan, had lost weight for it, become ‘size zero’ and couldn’t wait to begin work on it as she thought it would ‘change her life and career’. Kareena added that it was Shahid, whom she was dating at the time, who asked her to consider the script of Jab We Met. “In fact it was Shahid who actually said that I should hear this script of this film. He was like, ‘It’s amazing, the girl’s part is amazing and you should do it.’ He kind of actually got this entire project together and both of us ended up doing this film,” she said. Talking about the breakup she said, “Of course, then destiny had its own plan and life took its own course. A lot happened in the making of this film and Tashan and our lives... We all kind of went our separate ways. And this beauty of a movie came out of it.” Kareena also talked about how doing Tashan also changed her life. “I think we just had to kind of do this movie at this time when Tashan was being made...and I met Saif. So I kind of did Tashan for that actually...when I actually thought that was gonna change my life and my career. But this (Jab We Met) changed my career and that (Tashan) changed my life. Because I did meet the man of my dreams and I did marry him. And this (relationship with Shahid) kind of took its own course in which both Shahid and me went our separate ways. And this gem came out of it.” She added that it all felt like a ‘game of chess’, ‘karmically connected’. Kareena added that her and Geet’s lives were going through similar situations at the time. “It was tough on me professionally and personally. Because if you got to see how her life took a turn in the second half of the film, a lot of my life took a turn as well during the making of the film,” she said. Kareena added that all her hope was still lying on Tashan and when the film failed, she was ‘depressed for six months’. “When Tashan bombed and this film went on to become what it was, I was shattered. I was depressed for almost six months. I was like, I can’t believe this has happened,” she said. But she soon realised ‘this is the way it was meant to be.’” Also read: Saif Ali Khan says he discussed the impact marriage would have on Kareena Kapoor’s career: ‘I think we set an example’ Kareena and Saif got married in 2012 and welcomed their son Taimur in 2016. Shahid got married to Mira Rajput in 2015 and has a daughter Misha and son Zain with her. Kareena will now be seen in Angrezi Medium with Irrfan Khan, in Laal Singh Chaddha with Aamir Khan and in Takht with Alia Bhatt, Ranveer Singh, Vicky Kaushal and others. Kareena said Laal Singh Chaddha will prove to be her and Aamir’s best work ever. The film is a remake of Tom Hanks’ Forrest Gump.

Farah Khan Offered Hrithik Roshan Main Hoon Na Before He Made His Debut, After Kaho Naa.. Pyaar Hai Succes He Refused

Farah Khan opened up about the making of her directorial debut, Main Hoon Na, and said that she made a conscious decision to not have a Muslim antagonist. She made this revelation on Audible Suno’s podcast Picture Ke Peeche. According to a press release, Farah said that she did not want the villain of her film to be a Muslim. She also chose Khan as the name of the antagonist’s right-hand man, who realises he was being misled all along and ends up choosing his country over terrorism. Suniel Shetty played the villain, a former army officer-turned-militant named Raghavan, in Main Hoon Na. Shah Rukh Khan was seen as the hero, Major Ram Prasad Sharma, who foils his plans to derail a peaceful operation to strengthen bilateral ties between India and Pakistan. The film also starred Sushmita Sen, Zayed Khan and Amrita Rao in important roles. Also see: Rekha avoids posing near Amitabh Bachchan’s photo at Dabboo Ratnani calendar launch, calls it ‘danger zone’. Watch On the show, Farah also shared some interesting trivia about Main Hoon Na. She revealed that Ayesha Takia, and not Amrita, was the first choice to play tomboy Sanjana Bakshi. In fact, Ayesha even signed the film but lost out because she was already committed to shooting for Imtiaz Ali’s Socha Na Tha. Amrita was then brought on board, just ten days before the shoot began. Farah also had a tough time casting for the character of Laxman Prasad Sharma aka Lucky. She asked Hrithik Roshan to be a part of the film before he made his debut, but after Kaho Naa Pyaar Hai became a stupendous success, he refused to do a two-hero film. She also considered Abhishek Bachchan and Sohail Khan, before zeroing in on Zayed. The filmmaker also opened up about the possibility of Main Hoon Na 2 and said that the chances of making it were bleak. She initially had an idea for a sequel – another mission for Major Ram after 15 years – but decided to drop the idea as she felt that there are newer stories to tell.

I’ve always maintained that as an actor, I think my job is done before the release of the film.
