Saif Ali Khan said he 'didn't want to work with Sara Ali Khan' and replaced her with newbie Alaya Furniturewala in Jawani Janeman
Saif Ali Khan's new movie Jawani Janeman has been in the news ever since the trailer was out, yesterday. The song Ole Ole 2.0 from the movie has gathered a lot of views. The movie features Tabu and newbie Alaya Furniturewala, daughter of Pooja Bedi.
In a recent interview, Saif Ali Khan revealed that his daughter Sara Ali Khan was the first choice for Jawani Janeman instead of Alaya Furniturewala, who plays his on-screen daughter. In an interview with Pinkvilla, Saif said, "What happened was that Kedarnath was almost shelved and Sara didn't have any other movie and this film was around and being a knight in shining armour and good daddy I said, would you like to do this? She said yes and then Kedarnath was on track and Simmba fell into place and then I said listen Sara don't do this. Why are you doing this, this was a back up for you."
Saif also added, "I would love to do this with somebody else even but you should be working with Ranveer Singh and Varun Dhawan so she said yes I would like to do that".
Saif also admitted that he did not want to work with Sara. "I would not want her to really work with me because it gets complicated with family also," he said.
The movie Jawani Janeman is all set to release on February 7. Apart from Saif Ali Khan, Tabu and Alaya, the movie also has Farida Jalal, Chunky Panday, Kumud Mishra and Kubra Sait. Directed by Nitin Kakkar, the film is produced by Jackky Bhagnani's home production Pooja Entertainment.
