Last year, we have come to know that Pooj Bedi’s daughter Alaia Furniturewala will be making her debut in Bollywood. It has been said that the movie will be Saif Ali Khan starrer Jawaani Jaaneman. In this movie, Saif and Alaia are expected to play the role of father and daughter. Relationship between the father and daughter will be explored in this slice of life drama. Looking at the premise of the plot, it could have been a perfect movie for Saif’s real life daughter Sara Ali Khan. However, Saif has a different opinion about it.
During an interview with a newspaper, Saif has said “Alaia is perfect for the role. “I would have loved to have Sara in the film, but that would have meant her choosing this project over everything else she is doing as we wanted it to be the first film of the person we would cast. Sara’s career trajectory is in a good place and in a way I’m happy it’s separate from mine at the moment.”
Reports have suggested that Saif will be seen as a 50 year old man who is a Casanova at heart also. However, Omkara actor Saif has denied all these reports and said “The reports are ridiculous. I am excited about producing the film with Jay (Shewakramani, producer) because it’s a team coming together to create a relevant family comedy. It’s a modern film that people will connect with on many levels.” Nitin Kakkar will be helming the movie that has previously made movies like Filmistaan and more recently Notebook. Shooting for the movie Jawaani Jaaneman is starting from June in UK.
Right now, Saif is busy with the shooting of Ajay Devgan starrer Tanhaji: The Unsung Hero. In this movie, Saif will be seen in negative shade with the character of Udaybhan Singh Rathod. Om Raut directed movie will be releasing on 10th January, 2020.
