Following the phenomenal triumph of "Jab We Met," Imtiaz Ali never engaged in a subsequent collaboration with Kareena Kapoor Khan.

Fans have persistently inquired the director regarding a sequel to the beloved film "Jab We Met," as the iconic pairing of Kareena Kapoor Khan and Shahid Kapoor in this romantic masterpiece resonates with viewers to this day.

Every time this question was asked, Imtiaz had the same reply. But now, in a chat with News 18, the director opened up on collaborating with Kareena again after this massive blockbuster film. He revealed why that has not happened yet.

Speaking about the sequel to Jab We Met, Imtiaz Ali dismissed the idea of it but went on to add that he would have loved to collaborate with Kareena Kapoor Khan again.

Explaining why that could not happen yet, the director went on to say that whenever a filmmaker works with an actor, 'there is a responsibility on him to not do anything,' just for the sake of it.

 He added that his idea is to reunite only when there is a better or completely different project as compared to what they have done before.

The director has spoken about this several times before but in this interview, he opened up about the sequel of Jab We Met again. Imtiaz Ali quipped, “Why have a sequel to Jab We Met (laughs)? If people want to keep relishing the film, they can keep watching the first one! There has to be a story and a reason to make Jab We Met 2. But let’s see if it happens. Never say never!”

He further added that he made Love Aaj Kal the second time and people did not love it that much. Saying this, he added that this is not the reason he does not want to make the sequel to Jab We Met. “But unless there’s a really passionate reason to make a sequel, one shouldn’t.”
