Saif Ali Khan Ventures Into Movie Production With “Jawani Janeman”
Saif Ali Khan’s and Dinesh Vijan’s banner Illuminati Films had produced some interesting films like Love Aaj Kal (2009), Cocktail (2012) and Go Goa Gone (2013). Later, Dinesh set up his own production house and we now hear that Saif is all set to take a similar route by launching his production banner, which will be called Black Knight Films.
The actor will apparently join hands with long-time friend Jay Shewakramani for Black Knight Films and their first project together is likely to be Filmistaan director Nitin Kakkar’s next, tentatively titled Jawaani Jaaneman.
Meanwhile, it is interesting to note that Saif’s daughter Sara Ali Khan was also speculated to be a part of Nitin’s upcoming family comedy. But after Saif quashed the rumors, it is now learned that he will be launching a fresh face with his upcoming production venture. Saif and Jay are personally looking into the casting as the actor believes that an author-backed role like this is perfect for a debutante.
Although Saif is yet to confirm the news, his partner Jay talked revealed about the development to the Mumbai Mirror and said, “When I ventured out from Tips, the first director I approached was Nitin Kakkar. Around that time, I was developing the script of Jawaani Jaaneman; I narrated it to Nitin who loved it and that’s how it all fell in place.”
It looks like Saif’s new production house will start work from March 2019 after the Baazaaractor fulfills his prior professional commitments.
