Saif Ali Khan has started shooting for Nitin Kakkar’s film about a middle-aged man remarrying at an age when men in India are not supposed to have sex. Though director Nitin Kakkar’s next film Jawani Jaan-e-Man is predominantly a father-daughter story Kakkar has chosen not to cast Sara Ali Khan with her father Saif Ali Khan.
Instead, Jawani Jaan-e-Mann has Saif and actress Pooja Bedi’s daughter Alia as father and daughter. The team will begin shooting for Jawani Jaan-e-Mann on Monday. It is a father-daughter story.
Though Saif co-produces the film his daughter Sara Ali Khan wasn’t even considered for the film. They needed a fresh face. It wouldn’t work with a face that’s already known, Kakkar’s last film Notebook opened to heartening reviews.
