"Saif plays a Punjabi in Love Aaj Kal. But he didn't have the accent of a Sikh guy. So Saif mastered it by taking training for Punjabi diction. Saif got himself a tutor to train him to speak the language," a source said.

In Love Aaj Kal Saif has teamed up with Deepika Padukone. It is Saif's debut production and is directed by Imtiaz Ali of Jab We Met fame.
