Alaya F is all set to make her acting debut with the Bollywood film Jawaani Jaaneman alongside Saif Ali Khan and Tabu. The young actress who is Pooja Bedi’s daughter caught everyone’s attention when she was spotted with Saif Ali Khan at the India vs Pakistan match at ICC Cricket World Cup 2019. In an exclusive conversation with Bollywood Hungama, Alaya F revealed the hilarious conversation that she had with Saif Ali Khan.
Talking about the match day, Alaya said that she was three days away from shooting for the film and it was the second time she was meeting Saif Ali Khan. Prior to that, she had met Saif while getting introduced to the team of Jawaani Jaaneman.
Alaya also revealed the conversation she had with Saif on the day. Narrating the same, she said, “Saif sir looked at me and said, ‘Listen Alaya, just so you know, if you work, the film works, if you don’t work, the film won’t work’. I looked at Saif sir and said how can you say no pressure and say this. He was like, ‘No, if the audience likes you, they will love our film, if they don’t like you, they won’t like our film. So no pressure, but if you mess up, our film messes up’.”
Alaya was taken aback by this statement. However, she was all praise for the Cocktail actor. She said, “Saif sir is always there guiding me, helping me and being my mentor. I had the best time at the world cup and on the set. I just feel grateful.”
