Just the other day it was announced that Saif Ali Khan’s upcoming movie ‘Jawaani Jaaneman’ would star Tabu as the female lead.
While some reports state that Tabu will play an important cameo in the movie, other sources stated that Tabu has an interesting role and the producers felt that Tabu fit the bill.
Jay Shewakramani, who is producing the film with Saif and Jackky Bhagnani, says, “It’s too early at this stage to reveal Tabu’s character in the movie. All I can say at this point is that she has an extremely special role. She was always the first choice for Saif, Nitin and me and we are glad she agreed.” The coming-of-age film, which is a comic take on how a man confronts the harsh realities of his life, goes on floors next month.
The movie will be directed by Nitin Kakkar, the filmmaker who has directed movies such as 'Notebook', 'Mitron' and 'Filmistaan'. The production of the project is being held by multiple production houses, including Jackky Bhagnani's Pooja Entertainment, Saif Ali Khan's Black Knight Films and Jay Shewakramani's Northern Lights Films.
The other update on the movie is that the movie is that it is all set to go on floors in June this year in London. This news was shared by Trade Analyst Taran Adarsh.
"Jackky Bhagnani's Pooja Entertainment acquires Jawaani Jaaneman... Will co-produce with Saif Ali Khan [Black Knight Films] and Jay Shewakramani [Northern Lights Films]... Stars Saif Ali Khan, Tabu and Alaia F... Directed by Nitin Kakkar... Starts June 2019 in London," Adarsh tweeted.
‘Jawaani Jaaneman’ will also mark the Bollywood debut of Pooja Bedi's daughter Alaia Furniturewalla. She will play the role of Saif Ali Khan’s daughter in the movie.
Earlier Saif Ali Khan revealed that the movie is a light hearted drama.
"I'm excited about producing the film with Jay because it's a team coming together to try and create a family comedy that's relevant. Jawaani Jaaneman is a modern slice-of-life movie that people will connect to on so many levels,” said Saif Ali Khan.
Apart from ‘Jawaani Jaaneman’, Saif has several films in his kitty namely ‘Hunter’, ‘Bhoot Police’ and ‘Tanhaji’. Saif also has the second season of his hit web show, ‘Sacred Games’.
On the other hand, Tabu will next be seen in comedy movie ‘De De Pyar De’, also starring Ajay Devgn and Rakul Preet Singh.
