A lot had been speculated about who would play the daughter to Saif Ali Khan in his home production; Jawani Jaaneman, that the actor-producer will be making under his banner Black Knight Films.


However; the Race actor has finally cleared the air and confirmed that Pooja Bedi's daughter, Alia F, will be essaying the role of his daughter in the film and not his real-life daughter Sara Ali Khan.


On speaking about why Sara would not be a part of the film; Saif has been quoted by a leading entertainment portal during an interview saying," I would have loved to have Sara in Jawaani Jaaneman but that would have meant her choosing this film over everything else she's doing because we wanted this film to be the first film of the person we cast. I feel Sara's career graph and trajectory is in a good place and in a way I'm happy it's separate from mine at the moment. We are very excited to launch Alaia with this film and she is perfect for the part."


Refuting rumours of the film having Saif play a 50-year-old Casanova; Saif has revealed that the film will be a slice of life, light-hearted comedy. Speaking about the same; the Sacred Games actor 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."


Speaking about her debut; Alaia F was quoted a while back by Mumbai Mirror saying," The audience will not just get to see me perform but will also get a glimpse into my real life." 


Other than this film; Saif is gearing up for Hunter, Bhoot Police and has just wrapped up the shooting of Tanaji: The Unsung Warrior, the marks Saif's reunion with his Omkara co-star Ajay Devgn.
