Saif is back with his next production which he says depicts a slice of life

Saif Ali Khan is making a comeback with his production Jawani Jaaneman, which will depict a story revealing a slice of life. Saif will be playing a sophisticated middle aged man who will be seen onscreen with his grownup daughter. The daughter in the film is played by a new star kid Alaia F who is the daughter of Pooja Bedi.

Why Saif Ali Khan chose Alaia F over his own daughter Sara Ali Khan to play an onscreen father-daughter duo in Jawani Jaaneman?

So Bollywood has stretched oped its arms for yet another star kid debutant and she got to share her screen with veteran actor like Saif Ali Khan but still Saif is asked questions why he chose Alaia over his own daughter Sara who is still new to the industry and has been recognized as a two film old actor in the Hindi film industry. Though Sara has attracted praise from all around for her performance in Simbaa and Kedarnath.

In reply for choosing Alaia for his next, he said that the makers of the film wanted a fresh face to whom the masses could connect well. He also said, Sara is doing excellent in her work in front of her own and it will be too premature to team up at this juncture. He added, Alaia will be perfect for the role and it would be interesting for him to work with Alaia.

The film is about to be shot in London and is said that Saif will be seen playing Casanova with his daughter. Saif denied to this fact and said the film will be a representation of a slice of life from the perspective of a modern family setup.

In the current phase of life, Saif is busy shooting for the Sacred Games 2 and Sara is engaged to shoot with Imtiaz Ali for Love Aajkal 2 with Kartik Aaryan. Saif is also spotted with Taimur while he takes him for a tour in the city or at times goes to drop the little bundle of joy to his play school.
