Jawaani Jaaneman marks Pooja Bedi's daughter Alaya Furniturewalla's stepping stone in Bollywood. She plays the role of Saif's daughter in the movie. The cast of the film also includes Tabu and Kubbra Sait.
In his review for NDTV, film critic Saibal Chatterjee wrote: "The principal actors - Saif Ali Khan, debutante Alaya Furniturewalla and Tabu (in a special appearance as a coquettish bohemian who, by her own admission, is happy between meditation and hashish) - get into the swing of things with effortless ease, raising the dramedy to an out-of-the-ordinary level."
