Imtiaz Ali is a magician and his love stories are his magic. After DDLJ, if there is one love story that is unique and at the same time has captivated everyone’s heart, it is Imtiaz Ali’s ‘Jab We Met’.
The most beautiful part of Imtiaz’s films is that his stories flow naturally. They are neither dramatic nor too emotional, they are just real. And that is why we feel the connect with his characters.
In ‘Jab We Met’, the reason why Geet and Aditya deeply touched our hearts is that we found ourselves in them.
Ten years later, the movie hasn’t aged and every time we watch it, we love it the same way we loved it in the first place.
We also know that the story doesn’t end with the film, it breathes on. You might have often wondered what would have happened with Geet and Aditya after they were together. Well, Imtiaz Ali narrated ‘Jab We Met 2’ in his recent interview and you can’t help but adore his narration. He said,
There would be a situation (post Mauja Hi Mauja, the film’s last sequence) where Geet will be planning her honeymoon, ferociously and very, very particularly. Aditya will be enjoying very much because Geet has always been the one to do the planning. They will go to certain places and she will have a very strong regiment and all of that…
According to him, the character of Geet will remain her old self but she will evolve as a person, too.
She will be very expressive about how she wants to live her life and the way she wants to do regular things. It would be very good. But there would be one time, when they would outgrow that, and change and become different because there would be a conflict where she will become too expressive. Although Aditya will not complain, she will realise on her own that she is overstepping and how it would be for her if Aditya was to behave even for a day the way she behaves with him, how overbearing it would be. That would completely change her and it would bring about a certain maturity in her, which only happiness can give you,… She will remain like that (her old self) but (she will learn) that it is possible for that kind of person to not be overbearing. That’s the learning she has to do.
