Bollywood’s new kid on the block., Alaya Furniturewala, will soon be making her debut with Jawaani Jaaneman, which also stars Saif Ali Khan and Tabu. The trailer of the film was released a few weeks ago and has already got people excited to watch the young star on screen.
In an interview with a leading daily, Alaya opened up about her experience of shooting with stars like Saif and Tabu. She said, “”On my first day of the shoot, we did a 7-page scene as a 6-minute one shot with no cuts! You’ll see it in the film too! Nitin sir had said ‘no pressure! Just try and do it, even if we manage to get the first two minutes as a one-shot, I’ll be happy!’ It was quite line heavy and had complicated blocking and many technical instructions about catching light properly, not covering Saif Sir, making sure the two of us were constantly in the frame. To everyone’s surprise, we managed to do the whole 6 minutes without a single cut on our first try itself! After that, I felt like I could do anything! It’s like they threw me into the deep end hoping I could swim, and thankfully I could!!”
Directed by Nitin Kakkar, Jawaani Jaaneman is slated to release on January 31, 2020.
