Recently, the trailer of ‘Jawaani Jaaneman,’ starring Saif Ali Khan was finally launched. The movie revolves around Khan playing a 40-plus man who’s carefree and doesn’t want to take responsibilities of a family man. Pooja Bedi’s daughter Alaya F also makes her big Bollywood debut.
Directed by Nitin Kakkar, the film was initially to star Saif and his daughter, Sara Ali Khan, reports Pinkvilla. Saif himself confirmed the news and said “Yes, what had happened was that Kedarnath had almost been shelved and Sara didn’t have another movie. So this film was around and being the knight in shining armour and a good daddy, I asked her if she would like to do this. She had said yes.”
He continued by saying, “Kedarnath came back on track and then, Simmba also fell in place. I only told her then that listen Sara, don’t do this film. This was a backup for you. I think I could have done it with someone else but she should be working with Ranveer Singh and Varun Dhawan next. She said she would like to do that. I wouldn’t want her to do a film just because it’s me. It gets really complicated when it’s about family.”
It turns out the father and daughter combination have had various offers in the past to collaborate. “We have got at least three to five movie offers together. Sometimes, she didn’t like the script, sometimes, I felt I am not interested,” Saif concluded.
