Want to do age-appropriate roles: Saif Ali Khan
 
Mumbai: Actor Saif Ali Khan on Tuesday said he wants to star in roles that suit his age and that made him take up his next film "Jawaani Jaaneman".

In the movie, billed as a quirky family comedy, the 49-year-old actor plays a man who suddenly discovers he has a daughter, played by debutante Alaya, with his former lover, essayed by actor Tabu.

"I am lucky to get varied roles like 'Omkara', 'Tanhaji... ' and these kind of films. Producer Jay Shewakramani came to me with this offer.

"He had the script, but for one or two years we did not talk about it. I wanted to do age-appropriate roles. I felt the father's role was interesting. This part was cool and of a different kind," Saif told reporters.

He was speaking at the song launch of "Jawaani Jaaneman" here.

Asked if he is afraid of getting older, the actor said he never felt the pressure.

"You have to be young at heart, you have to be good. I don't want to be very young, I don't want to be old either. But I am happy... Till the time, I am getting work I am ok. When I retire, I will retire, will chill.

"I like this idea of having some time for making money, some time to relax. There is a time for everything in life. And when that comes I will find other things to do, I will be very happy," the "Sacred Games" star said.

Heaping praises on Alaya, daughter of former actor Pooja Bedi, the actor said working with the newcomer was a "brilliant" experience.

"... The new generation is so prepared as compared to what we were. I have worked with Shah Rukh Khan. And it was amazing, it was the same energy," Saif said.

Alaya said she was both nervous and excited about working on the film.

"I could give my best only because I was surrounded by people who are the best. Every day was fun, I felt rewarded and content after the shoot. I am grateful I got to work with talented people," she said.

Tabu has a cameo in the film and Saif said she is one of the best actresses in the country. The actor duo has worked together in 1990s hits like "Hum Saath Saath Hain" and "Biwi No 1".

"Anything she does comes alive. It is brilliant working with her," he added.

Directed by Nitin Kakkar, the film is slated to be released on January 31.

Saif is also co-producing the film under his banner Black Knight Films, along with Pooja Entertainment and Northern Lights Films.
