What happens when an adult refuses to act like an adult and is thrown in front of a teenage girl to accept as his daughter? The comedy-of-errors, Jawaani Jaaneman, starring Saif Ali Khan, Tabu and Alaya Furniturewala seems ready to create many new box-office records.

The film, which is slated to release on January 31, 2020, recently had a special screening. Saif Ali Khan came hand-in-hand with Kareena Kapoor, Alaya F came solo while her mother Pooja Bedi came with her future father, Maneck Contractor.

Alaya vs Sara

Alaya F's grandfather, Kabir Bedi was also in attendance at the special screening, who had come to the event with his wife. Earlier, there were talks of Sara playing Saif's daughter in the film. Talking about the same, Saif said, "Kedarnath was almost shelved and Sara didn't have any other movie. Being a knight in shining armour and a good daddy, I asked her if she would like to do Jawaani Jaaneman. She was like, 'Yes.' And then Kedarnath came on track and Simmba fell into place. Then I said, 'Sara don't do this film. This was a back up for you. You should be doing films with Varun Dhawan and Ravneer Singh. So she said okay, thank you, I would like to do that. It gets complicated with family also. In the sense that it has to be something that she really wants to do."
