For the uninitiated, Kabir Bedi and his daughter, Pooja Bedi's (Alaya F's mother) relations had gone sour after Pooja had made a sly remark on Kabir's second wife, Parveen Dusanj. But the father-daughter duo had come together to celebrate the proud moment of Alaya Furniturewalla making her Bollywood debut and had posed as a happy family at the screening of Jawaani Jaaneman. Sharing the picture with Kabir and Alaya, Pooja had written, “Three generations in film!!! At the launch of #jawaanijaaneman wishing @alaya.f the VERRRRRRRY BEST! Post me your comments on your favourite scene once u see the film. Thank you@jayshewakramani @nitinrkakkar @pooja_ent for a fab film.”
Kabir Bedi too had shared his happiness on seeing his granddaughter, Alaya Furniturewalla making a successful Bollywood debut. He had tweeted, “So happy to see ALAYA F, my granddaughter, starring in her first film, “Jawaani Jaaneman”, as daughter of dashing Saif Ali Khan and brilliant Tabu. She plays her heart-warming role beautifully. A delight to watch. My blessings for lifelong success. @AlayaF___ #JawaaniJaaneman.”
On January 16, 2020, when Kabir Bedi had turned 74, he had opened up about the debut of his granddaughter, Alaya Furniturewalla. In a conversation with a leading media portal, Kabir had talked about Alaya’s big Bollywood debut in Saif Ali Khan and Tabu starrer Jawaani Jaaneman and had said that he believes that Alaya is an unbeatable combination as the starlet has prepared herself for her next two movies too. On January 3, 2020, with the release of Alaya’s first look in the film, Kabir had tweeted, “CONGRATULATIONS to Alaya F, my grand-daughter, on her debut film, “Jawaani Jaaneman”, with the dashing Saif Ali Khan playing her father, releasing on Jan 31st! Keep the family flag flying, Alaya All my blessings.”
In an interview with the IANS, Alaya Furniturewalla had revealed that she likes to make decisions on her own when she was asked if she takes career advices from her star grandfather, Kabir Bedi and mother, Pooja Bedi. She was quoted as saying, "I like to do stuff myself, be it taking any decision or anything else, I generally take my own call. I believe in 'sabki suno lekin apni karo' (listen to everyone but take your own call). It does not mean that I don't take the advice my mother or my grandfather (Kabir Bedi) give me about films. I do discuss things with them, but at the end of the day it would be my decision. I am quite critical about myself."
