Deepika Padukone and Saif Ali Khan will enjoy some lip-locking in the movie Love Aaj Kal but Deepika insists that things in movies are not always what they seem. “To you it looks like a kiss but actually it’s more of a cheating,” she explains. The film is based on the Taiwanese movie Three Times by Hou Hsiao-Hsien, which consisted of three chronologically separate (1911, 1966, 2005) love stories linked by a single theme. The movie starred Taiwanese superstars Shu “Transporter” Qi and Chang Chen. So it looks like Deepika and Saif fans are in for a real treat.
The two stars of the movie are currently in the UK for the ICC T-20 World Cup, with Saif doing some commenting and using the opportunity to promote the movie to a wider audience. “Basically, we see that the cricket tournament as a great platform to promote our film following our last win at the World Cup,” said Biren Ghose of Eros International, “Love Aaj Kal is one of our biggest movies and we want to mount it on a large platform. Since there is tremendous cache with Bollywood and sports, we decided to tie up with ESPN to promote our film at the T-20 World Cup.”
Meanwhile, Deepika can be seen on the front cover of the Latin American version of Vogue, the first Indian star to do so and in a further sign of her spreading popularity, she has confirmed that she will be doing an item number for the Tollywood film Love4Ever which stars newcomers Ranadeep and Mridula.
