Pooja Bedi’s daughter Alaia F looks a lot like her mother. In fact, that’s the first thing that you will notice in Alaia as she gets ready to make her Bollywood debut with ‘Jawaani Jaaneman’. 

The film is produced by Jay Shewakramani of Northern Lights Films. Interestingly, the young actress has now been signed for a three-film deal.

Speaking of the deal, Shewakramani said, "I just followed my instinct. After working with Alaia in Jawaani Jaaneman and seeing her evolve as an actor, I knew she has what it takes in this field. I had this in mind since the very beginning. But working with her extensively on the film was a reassurance that 'yes, I want to do this'."

‘Jawaani Jaaneman’ is a coming-of-age story of a father and daughter duo. In the movie, Saif Ali Khan will be seen playing the role of Alaia's father. The film is a comic take on how a man confronts the harsh realities of life.

Reportedly, Saif Ali Khan has undergone a complete makeover before the commencement of the film. It is said that he lost 11 kilos for the role.

Directed by Nitin Kakkar, the film also features Tabu. ‘Jawaani Jaaneman’ will mark Tabu and Saif’s on-screen reunion after 20 years. They last worked together in Sooraj Barjatya’s 1999 family drama ‘Hum Saath Saath Hain’, which also starred Salman Khan, Sonali Bendre and Karishma Kapoor in important roles. 

‘Jawaani Jaaneman’ will release on November 29.
