Malaal actor and Jaaved Jaaferi's son, Meezaan Jaaferi, who recently wrapped up the shooting of Hungama 2, has been grabbing the headlines for his alleged relationship with Amitabh Bachchan’s granddaughter Navya Naveli Nanda. While the handsome hunk has denied the news, now father Jaaved Jaaferi has reacted to it and said that they are only good friends as he told E Times, "People want content. Being good friends with somebody is considered to be something else always. These children have grown up together; my daughter and Navya have been friends since school. They have a common group of friends. Even Sara Ali Khan and Meezan were in the same school. They used to come home, hang around till 3 am. It is convenient to link them up as they are always together."

Jaaved Jaaferi also spoke about his dubbing career and said, "I have dubbed for Mickey Mouse, Sherkhan the Tiger, Don Karnage, and a few more characters. Dubbing happened as I was into advertising. For an actor, his voice is also an integral part. When you dub for an animation film, the voice is key and one needs to change it as per the character. Now from Mickey Mouse's voice, which is a very high-pitched voice, to Sherkhan-the Tiger, which is a baritone, I managed both, which was an achievement. There was hardly any money in dubbing but I did it to expand my horizons. And then ‘Takeshi’s Castle’ was a cult."
Talking about the evolution of dance in Bollywood, Jaaved said, "I was the one who brought the transition in film dance as Mithun da. Govinda and Prabhudheva came much after me. I kick-started this athletic, technical style of dancing which involved doing kicks, spins, and jumps. My kind of dance required slightly more skill and precision. People got a glimpse of it in my film, 'Meri Jung'. In fact, I asked Subhash ji, why don't they add a bit of a rap in the song, 'Bol Baby Bol'. And that was the first time, rap was used in Indian cinema."
