Bollywood has frequently witnessed the phenomenon of actors turning into producers. Some make it to the victory while some fail to sustain the pressure of the volatile market. After four years of producing Happy Ending, Saif Ali Khan returns to production. The actor will be producing Nitin Kakkar's directorial with filmmaker Jay Shewakramani.


Titled Jawani Janeman is touted to be a family comedy, which will feature Saif Ali Khan in the lead role. The film is expected to go on floors in the first half of 2019. "I have worked with Saif as a creative producer on Race and Race 2 and we have been good friends since a long time. When I ventured out to produce a film on my own, Saif wanted to get back into it at the same time and this seemed like the perfect project for both of us," Jay told a leading tabloid. He added, "It is a coming-ofage story of a 40-year-old man and revolves around his relationship with his daughter."


Nitin Kakkar has collaborated with Saif Ali Khan and Jay Shewakramani for a three film deal. "Saif and I are big fans of Filmistaan. When I took the film to Nitin, he loved it and immediately came on board. Saif hasn't delved into this space for a while now so he decided to produce the film alongside acting in it," the filmmaker added.


Hussain Dalal who is credited for writing dialogues for Yeh Jawaani Hai Deewani, 2 States, Fanney Khan and Brahmastra has written the dialogues for Saif's film as well.


"The idea is to make a really funny film and Hussain is already ready with his draft,"
Jay said. Adding further, he said, "There will be extensive readings with the cast once everyone is locked. We will be spending some time on giving Saif's character the perfect look."


It was reported that Sara Ali Khan will feature in the film, however, reports suggest that the makers are casting a new face for the film. Speaking about the same, Jay concluded, "We haven't cast anyone yet."
