Saif Ali Khan finally answers the pending question that why Alaia F has been cast in ‘Jawaani Jaaneman’ instead of Sara Ali Khan. During a recent interview that Saif gave, he spoke in detail about why he chose Alaia F over his own daughter for playing reel life daughter in his upcoming production venture.
Alaia F, who is veteran Bollywood Actress Pooja Bedi’s daughter, will be making her on-screen debut with Jawaani Jaaneman. What got this project in the headlines was its cast, as she will be portraying the role of Saif Ali Khan’s daughter in the movie. While in real-life, Saif has his own daughter Sara, an already established performer in the industry who was much anticipated to feature with her real-life father on-screen in this movie was cast out.
Meanwhile, getting back to Alaia. During a recent interview she provided a little bit of glimpse into her role in the movie, her comments went like:
“The audience will not just get to see me perform but will also get a glimpse into my real life.”
To give all the flying rumors a landing, Saif finally broke his silence about the movie’s cast. He 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.”
Well, with both the father and the daughter comfortable with the wait that it takes to perform alongside each other on-screen, we don’t mind to wait for the right moment to arrive as well.
Saif also added,
” 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.”
