Kareena Kapoor Khan reveals she was not the initial choice for her upcoming OTT debut Jaane Jaan.
After impressing fans with her roles as Geet in Jab We Met, Poo in K3G, and more, Kareena Kapoor Khan is all set to make her OTT debut with Sujoy Ghosh’s Jaane Jaan. However, recently the actress revealed that she wasn’t the initial choice for it.
On Monday, the trailer of Kareena Kapoor Khan, Vijay Varma, and Jaideep Ahlawat-starrer Jaane Jaan was released which took the internet by storm. At the trailer launch, the actress revealed, “Back then I was not even a part of this film. But Saif is extremely excited about Jaane Jaan. He is eagerly awaiting to watch the film. He has seen the trailer four times and he feels that everyone has completely nailed it.”
Sujoy Ghosh further talked about Saif Ali Khan’s connection with Jaane Jaan and said, “Saif has a history with the film and then like a true husband shoved down his responsibilities on Kareena. We were supposed to do the film but we couldn’t make it and I believe that every film has its own destiny and now it has happened with Kareena so for me it has come a full circle.”
Saif Ali Khan and Aishwarya Rai Bachchan were the first choice for the movie. Earlier, when the movie was initially announced, Aishwarya told Bollywood Hungama, “I’ve agreed to do Sujoy’s Durga Rani and the screen adaptation of Keigo Higashino’s Japanese novel The Devotion Of Suspect X. I don’t know which one he will start first.”
Helmed by Sujoy Ghosh, Jaane Jaan is a crime thriller that stars Kareena Kapoor Khan, Jaideep Ahlawat, and Vijay Varma. It marks the first collaboration between the three actors and is scheduled to release on Netflix on the actress’ birthday, September 21.
Meanwhile, Saif Ali Khan who was last seen in Adipurush, will be next seen in Jr NTR, Janhvi Kapoor-starrer Devara. Helmed by Koratala Siva, the movie stars Saif as the antagonist Bhaira, and is scheduled to release in 2024.
