Raving about getting the much needed creative freedom in making Love Aaj Kal, Imtiaz notes, “Although Saif has reinvented his career as a producer with this film, he has never ever intervened in the making."
As a matter of fact Saif did not intimidate the cast by throwing-off his weight as a producer; instead he tried to break the ice between the cast and crew, and even made the shy and reclusive Imtiaz comfy on the sets.
Wonder how Saif achieved the great rapport on sets? Simple, by doing what he knows best-Hard-core Partying. Saif worked hard and partied harder with his crew
We hear the party went hand-in-hand with the shoot; the film has been shot at 3 different locations - San Fransisco, London and India. And those are the exact places Saif took his party to after wrapping up the shoot, the crew would go in for night long hard-core partying. Of course without Kareena Kapoor since she is not in the film.
Imtiaz excitedly confirms, “We would party all night and crash to bed the next morning and go off to sleep before flying off for a different location."
In Bollywood a producer is always portrayed as an uncle scrooge who is holding onto every penny by his teeth, but the director of Love Aaj Kal begs to differ. Imtiaz Ali is one happy director as he has all the good things to say about his peppy producer - Saif Ali Khan.
