Maddock Films released the trailer on their official YouTube channel today, which shows Kartik Aaryan and Sara Ali Khan as Veer and Zoe. The trailer clearly shows us two different timelines, one which is set in 1990 and is referred to as ‘Kal’ and one which is set in the present and is referred to as ‘Aaj.’
Maddock Films tweeted, “1990 se lekar 2020 tak, pyaar same hai, bas andaaz alag hai. #LoveAajKal (sic.)” Kartik Aaryan is spot on in portraying the characters from two different eras. Arushi Sharma plays Kartik Aaryan’s love interest in the 1990 timeline, while Sara Ali Khan plays his love interest in the present timeline. However, going by the trailer, it seems like this movie will be similar to the Love Aaj Kal which was released in 2009.
1990 se lekar 2020 tak, pyaar same hai, bas andaaz alag hai. #LoveAajKal https://t.co/SoOcBgxNbg@TheAaryanKartik #SaraAliKhan #ImtiazAli #DineshVijan @WeAreWSF @jiostudios @JioCinema @RelianceEnt @Shibasishsarkar @RandeepHooda @ipritamofficial @sonymusicindia @iamarushisharma
