Saif Ali Khan is gearing up for ‘Jawaani Jaaneman’ where he is playing the on-screen father of Alaya F. Earlier there were reports that Alaya’s role was offered to Sara Ali Khan and she was supposed to play Saif’s on-screen daughter. Recently, in an interview with Pinkvilla, Saif revealed that Sara was offered the movie and he also told the reason why she couldn’t be part of it.

Saif said, “What had happened was that ‘Kedarnath’ had almost been shelved and Sara didn’t have another movie. So this film was around and being the knight in the shining armour and a good daddy, I asked her if she would like to do this. She had said yes.”

Revealing the reason why Sara couldn’t be part of ‘Jawaani Jaaneman’, he said, “‘Kedarnath’ came back on track and then ‘Simmba’ also fell in place. I only told her then that listen, Sara, don’t do this film. This was a backup for you. I think I could have done it with someone else but she should be working with Ranveer Singh and Varun Dhawan next. She said she would like to do that. I wouldn’t want her to do a film just because it’s me. It gets really complicated when it’s about family.”

Interestingly, the director of ‘Jawaani Jaaneman’, Nitin Kakkar told us that Sara was never offered the movie. He said, “As it was a father-daughter story, people assumed that Sara would be there.”

Here’s the video.
