When the trailers of Love Aaj Kal 2, starring Kartik Aaryan & Sara Ali Khan and directed by Imtiaz Ali, were released everyone was so excited to watch the movie. The memories of the first part (Saif Ali Khan and Deepika Padukone) are still fresh in everybody’s minds. That movie is that good. But… nothing went right with the 2nd part.
You will be surprised to know that Love Aaj Kal 2 is the biggest flop that the director Imtiaz has ever made. The box office collections dropped steeply in just one single day. Everyone was verbal about the whole concept of this movie. 100s of memes appeared on the internet and the reviews by everyone were so bad that one can only imagine why was this movie was even made!
“No big film in recent times has shown such a steep drop from day 1 to day 2. Love Aaj Kal 2 did not survive even for the very first week,” said one spokesperson from a multiplex cinema in New Delhi.
Kartik and Sara blindly trusted Imtiaz in this movie. He always made considerably good movies but he was 100% wrong this time around. It is being said that Kartik and Sara when shooting for the movie were actually uncomfortable doing most of the scenes because they did not make any sense to them, but as they had faith in Imtiaz (rather were told to trust him as they have never done any such work earlier), they kept on doing those scenes.
The lead pair surrendered themselves to the vision of the director, but unfortunately, that vision was completely wrong and rather stupid.
But all this blind faith and extreme trust resulted in a big flop that none of them will ever forget. The end product has been disliked by everyone.
Imtiaz has been hit really badly by the debacle of the film. It is also being reported (not confirmed yet) that there were talks about a biopic movie on Madhubala, but he will not be directing it anymore due to what happened with Love Aaj Kal 2.
