After sharing the screen with him in Sooraj Barjatya’s family drama, actress wraps up a special turn in his home production
She informed that she has a special connect with the Queen’s City as it holds memories of two other films, R Balki’s off-beat love story 'Cheeni Kum' with Amitabh Bachchan, and Luv Ranjan’s more recent 'De De Pyaar De' with Ajay Devgn. “This is an altogether different film, and it’s amazing to work with Saif after so many years.” Their last collaboration, 'Hum Saath Saath Hai', released in 1999. “We did 'Biwi No 1' after that but didn’t have any scenes together. Saif has a great sense of humour and I was looking forward to doing this kind of a film with him,” she added.
Prod her on the role and she said, “It’s a nice and open spirited space for me. 'Golmaal Again', 'De De Pyaar De' and now 'Jawaani Jaaneman' are all energetic characters, and in this space, you get to do something fun with the clothes and create a look. It’s different from the serious dramas that I had been doing.”
She recounted that Jay Shewakramaniwho is producing the film with Saif and Jackky Bhagnani, called her one day with this special appearance. “Since he is an old friend, working with him was sentimental and when I heard the story, I discovered that it is a fun space and was instantly game,” she reasoned.
