Jawani Janeman is directed by Nitin Kakkar, who had previously directed Filmistaan and Mitron. The film went on floors in London on 18 June, and features Saif as the middle-aged bloke Jazz, who shirks at the mention of responsibility. His life takes a dramatic turn when Alaya's character Tia finds him in an alley, and tells him there is a possibility he is her father. Soon, Tabu's character also finds her way into Saif's house, and it comes to the fore Tabu is Tia's mother.

Speaking to Firstpost about his expectations out of the commerce of this film, Kakkar said, "I have actually not given importance to box office till now. Maybe I should because that might change things in my filmmaking (laughs). I should make films that people want to watch."

Saif has co-produced the film under his banner Black Knight Films, along with Jackky and Vasu Bhagnani's Pooja Entertainment and Northern Lights Films.
