Gratitude and excitement is all I feel... IT’S A WRAP FOR ME ON JAWAANI JAANEMANNN!!!😍 Thank you, thank you, thank you! I couldn’t have asked for anything more!♥️ @nitinrkakkar #SaifAliKhan @jayshewakramani #JawaaniJaaneman #saifalikhan #alaiaf #blackknightfilms #northernlightsfilms @pooja_ent @nitinrkakkar @jayshewakramani @jackkybhagnani @akshaipuri @honeybhagnani
Jawaani Jaaneman is produced by Saif's production house Black Knight Films alongside Jay Shewakramani's Northern Lights Films. Saif had described it in an interview as a "modern slice-of-life movie that people will connect to on so many levels." The film, directed by Nitin Kakkar, is a coming-of-age story, which revolves around a 40-year-old man and the relationship he has with his daughter.
It was previously rumoured that Saif's daughter Sara was cast opposite him. However, Saif had said, "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."
"People were sceptical about the unconventional plot until I met Farhan Akhtar who flipped on the subject," says Aadar Jain, who makes his second onscreen appearance with Hello Charlie, an Excel Entertainment comedy premiering on Amazon Prime Video this Friday.
