Debuting Bollywood with ‘Om Shanti Om’ alongside megastar Shah Rukh Khan, B’wood diva Deepika Padukone has come a long way in the industry. Since then, she went on to deliver back-to-back hits and proved multifaceted skills with her unparallel roles.
She has numerous remarkable films in her kitty, but Imtiaz Ali’s Love Aaj Kal remains one of her most momentous works. With the release of the movie back in 2009, not only she earned huge appreciation for her performance as Meera but it also came across to be one of her most admired characters of all time.
As the film clocked successfully 12 years today, the actress went down in the lane of memories and cherished the character ‘Meera’ from the movie.
Reminiscing about the film and her on-screen character, she shared, “I can’t believe it’s been 12 years since Love Aaj Kal already! Meera, I believe, was simply beautiful; inside out. A character many related to at the time. Just reminiscing about all those months we spent filming in Delhi and London, brings a smile to my face.”
Love Aaj Kal was directed by Imtiaz Ali and marked his first-ever collaboration with the actress. It brought together Saif Ali Khan and Deepika in lead. Audiences were delighted to witness such a charming and fresh onscreen duo on the big screen.
Bankrolled by Saif Ali Khan and Dinesh Vijan, the movie was a take on modern-day relationships. The film portrayed Deepika as the free-spirited Meera who enjoys every bit of life. Her charismatic performance received much appreciation from fans and is still fresh in the minds of the audience.
The movie also had a contribution of soulful tracks including Ajj Din Chadheya, Dooriyan, Thoda Thoda Pyar, and Main Kya Hoon. These songs from the film were all-time hits and the audience can still feel the same pleasure listening to them.
