Amidst all the newcomers entering Bollywood lately (both star kids as well as outsiders), the industry is all set to welcome yet another newbie on the block. Pooja Bedi‘s daughter Alaia F, who is already quite a sensation on social media, will be making her debut next year in Saif Ali Khan‘s home production, Jawaani Jaaneman.

Saif will essay the role of a father in his late 40’s who refuses to grow up despite being responsible for a teenage daughter, played by Alaia. The film is a family comedy being directed by Nitin Kakkar and is being produced by Saif’s banner, Black Knight films in collaboration with Jay Shewakramani‘s Northern Light Films.

Reportedly, Saif and Jay are personally looking into Alaia’s big Bollywood debut as the former was also instrumental in launching Diana Penty (Cocktail) and Giselli Monteiro (Love Aaj Kal).

Talking about the upcoming actress, Saif said:

I’m very excited about working with Alaia… she has all the qualities we were looking for a young lead . She has the charm and energy to take the film to the level it needs and I’m looking forward to getting to work with her . We are lucky to have found our perfect cast .

Alaia has got this film purely on merit. We tested her the same way we tested others for this particular role.Nitin, Saif and I unanimously felt she is right for the role after viewing the screen test so we are super excited and looking forward to working with her.

The film goes on floors early next year in London. All the best, Alaia! We are eagerly looking forward to see you on the big screen.
