Pooja Bedi’s Daughter Alaia To Debut Opposite Saif Ali Khan
4 years after Happy Ending, Saif Ali Khan is all set to return to production with Jay Shewakramani for Jawani Janeman. And guess what? A report in Mumbai Mirror states that this film will mark the debut of Pooja Bedi’s daughter Alaia Furniturewalla. She will essay the role of the actor’s teenage daughter. The project will be directed by Nitin Kakkar of Filmistaan fame.

Talking to the leading tabloid, Saif said, “She has all the qualities we were looking for in the young lead, the charm and energy to take the film to the level that it needs. We are lucky to have found our perfect cast and I’m looking forward to work with Alaia.”

Reportedly, she was picked after the makers screen-tested 50 aspirants. Jay informs, “Someone told me that Pooja Bedi’s daughter wants to act, so I checked out her pictures and sent a message to Pooja who put me in touch with Alaia’s agency. We loved her test, she’s got the film completely on her own merit.”

Jay further told Mirror, “Within 10 minutes of our meeting Nitin felt that she is the prefect cast for this film. She will play a fun-loving, independent girl, sporting a modern look in the film and will begin her readings and workshops next month, while we will start shooting for the film in March. However, she pretty much needs to be herself in the film as the role is quite tailor made for her.” Jawani Janeman is expected to go on floors next year.
