Saif Ali Khan reveals Sara Ali Khan was first approached for Jawaani Jaaneman

Saif Ali Khan revealed that Sara Ali Khan was offered Jawaani Jaaneman when Kedarnath was shelved


Saif Ali Khan is all set to be seen in the upcoming film Jawaani Jaaneman which also stars Tabu and debutant Alaya Furniturewala. The makers recently launched the official trailer which had shown Alaya as Saif’s daughter. Saif in a recent interview with a leading daily had revealed that it was his real life daughter Sara Ali Khan who was earlier approached for the role.

The 49 year old star explained that it was the time when Sara’s debut film Kedarnath was almost shelved and Sara did not have any projects in her hand then. This was when Saif asked Sara if she would do Jawaani Jaaneman to which she had agreed. After that Kedarnath was back on track and even Simmba happened to her eventually. Saif later told her not to do Jawaani Jaaneman as that was a back-up plan for her.

This was not the first time when Saif and Sara were offered films together. They have been offered about three to five films together. The actor said that sometimes Sara did not like toe script and sometimes he felt uninterested.

For now Jaawani Jaaneman, a relationship comedy by Nitin Kakkar is all set to be released in theatres on January 31, 2020.
