Jawaani Jaaneman is a Saif Ali Khan production in which the Nawab will also be seen playing the on-screen father of Pooja Bedi's daughter Alaia Furniturewala. The film is helmed by Nitin Kakkar who in an interview revealed that the film would revolve around a father-daughter relationship. In an interview with a leading daily, Saif said that Alaia has all the qualities he was looking for in a young lead, the charm and energy to take the film to the level that it needs. He further added that he feels they are lucky to have found the perfect cast and they were looking forward to working with Alaia.
Jay Shewakramani, the co-producer of Jawaani Jaaneman also opened up about casting Alaia for the film. He was told that Pooja Bedi's daughter wanted to act, so he browsed through Alaia's pictures. He then sent a message to Pooja Bedi who helped him contact Alaia's agency. He further added that they loved her test and she’s got the film entirely on her merit.
According to industry sources, Saif will play a 40-year-old father who refuses to mature irrespective of having a teenage daughter. Nothing about the film's story is yet confirmed by any of the officials in-charge. Jawaani Jaaneman is Alaia's Bollywood debut in which she will be seen alongside Saif Ali Khan and Tabu.
Saif, apart from Jawaani Jaaneman, has multiple movies in his kitty including Taanaji: An Unsung Warrior alongside Ajay Devgn, Laal Kaptaan which is one of the most anticipated movies, Bhoot Police, and also in Dil Bechara alongside Sushant Singh Rajput
