Deepika Padukone, who has starred in two of Imtiaz Ali's films (Love Aaj Kal and Tamasha), shared a throwback picture with the filmmaker from the 2009 film Love Aaj Kal, which clocked 11 years on Friday. The picture appears to be taken in a metro. In the picture perfect frame, Deepika Padukone aka Meera can be seen smiling as she looks at her film's director. She captioned the post: "The eyes say it all...Meera. 11 years of Love Aaj Kal." Deepika Padukone also changed her Instagram handle to Meera (the name of her character in the film).

Imtiaz Ali's Love Aaj Kal showcases two parallel love stories separated by time. The story that featured Deepika and Saif Ali Khan, was set in 2009 or the titular "aaj," the other one that featured Giselli Monteiro, was representative of old school romance and was narrated by late actor Rishi Kapoor. The film explored the themes of modern day romance, break ups and the complications that come with it. Love Aaj Kal was a hit at the box office and so were its soundtracks (composed by Pritam). The songs Chor Bazaari, Twist, Aahun Aahun, Yeh Dooriyaan and Aaj Din Chadheya are loved even today.
Earlier this year, Imtiaz Ali directed the second installment of Love Aaj Kal with the same name. The film featured Saif Ali Khan's daughter Sara Ali Khan, Kartik Aaryan, Arushi Sharma and Randeep Hooda (in a cameo appearance). The film didn't fare well at the box office.
