Audience laps up Love Aaj Kal

Last updated on: August 04, 2009 11:53 IST
Saif Ali Khan can relax a little because it looks like his first production Love Aaj Kal has gone down quite well with the audience. The movie had a sustained collection over the weekend, especially in the Metros. However, its high cost will make recovery tough.
