Why every Imtiaz Ali film has been a love story? Love seems to be the eternal subject for filmmaker Imtiaz Ali. Both his directorial ventures Socha Na Tha and Jab We Met were love stories and his upcoming next, Love Aaj Kal is a love story as well.

But prod him about it and his reply is, “Love is something that I have still not understood. It is ironical that all the three films that I have made till date-Socha Na Tha, Jab We Met and now Love Aaj Kal deal with love. Love can mean different things to the same person at different times. I feel that love is a very overbearing word.”

But then how does Imtiaz Ali makes films on love when he candidly confesses that he does not understand love at all?
His reply for the same is, “So what if I set out to make films on love though I do not understand love at all? People who write about God do not know anything about God because they have not seen god. Similarly I set out to make films on love.”

So does he plan to make his every film a love story? “All said and done, I would say that I will make a film on a story which I like best at a particular time. I will not waste time thinking whether the story that I like is a love story or not. It is immaterial for me as a film maker. I will however direct only one film at a time.” Imtiaz says before signing off. -Sampurn Media
