I have never repeated my star pairs till date: Imtiaz Ali

Imtiaz Ali Apparently, Kareena Kapoor seems to have been upset that her Jab We Met director Imtiaz Ali when set to make his next, a Saif Ali Khan production, titled Love Aaj Kal, he didn’t cast her.

Clearing the controversy, at the press meet held at a Mumbai multiplex for his film Love Aaj Kal, Imtiaz stated, “I am happy to hear that Kareena Kapoor thinks very highly of me. She is my favorite actress too. The reason I did not cast her in Love Aaj Kal was I did not want to spoil the film. I am of the opinion that you should cast your actors as per the demands on the role and not just because she is a favourite. So just as Kareena suited the role of Geet in Jab We Met, I feel Deepika Padukone suits the role of Meera in Love Aaj Kal to the T. What I like about Deepika is that she has a sense of silent perception, a certain quality and nature which suits the character of Meera that she is playing in Love Aaj Kal.”

Imtiaz further added, “It is a fact that I have not repeated my star pairs in every film that I have made till date. If I had Abhay Deol and Ayesha in Socha Na Tha, I had Shahid and Kareena Kapoor in Jab We Met and in Love Aaj Kal I have Saif and Deepika Padukone. It has not been a conscious decision on my part, because I always as a filmmaker go with actors who suit the characters that the script demands in my films.” -Sampurn Media
