Jaane Tu... Ya Jaane Na (transl. Whether you know or not) is a 2008 Indian Hindi-language coming of age romantic comedy film, written and directed by Abbas Tyrewala. The film stars Imran Khan and Genelia D'Souza in the lead roles. Produced by Mansoor Khan, Aamir Khan, it marks the directional debut of Abbas Tyrewala, the debut of Imran Khan (Aamir Khan's nephew) and Prateik Babbar as actors, and the re-appearance of D'Souza in Hindi cinema. Released on 4 July 2008, the film received positive reviews and was successful at the box office. The music is by A. R. Rahman.
The story begins as four friends travel with a guest to an airport, when Jignesh "Jiggy" Patel (Nirav Mehta), Ravindran "Rotlu" Sahu (Karan Makhija), Sandhya "Bombs" Sahay (Alishka Varde) and Shaleen Varma (Sugandha Garg) offer to tell Jiggy's date, air hostess Mala Mishra (Renuka Kunzru), the unique love story of Jai and Aditi, two friends who they have known.
Jai "Rats" Singh Rathore (Imran Khan) is the most non-violent Rajput to have ever existed, while Aditi "Meow" Mahant (Genelia D'Souza), is an aggressive and impulsive girl. Her nickname is the result of her abuse and scratching of people.
Despite their differences, Jai and Aditi are best friends in college. They seem perfect for each other, but everyone except them acknowledges this fact. Aditi often has a bickering relationship with her brother Amit (Prateik Babbar), who seems to hate Jai because of his polite and cool nature, and since Aditi cannot stand any insults against Jai, she regularly picks up fights with him.
Aditi dreams of a virile, macho husband, while Jai wants a sweet, romantic girl. Since they do not believe that they are in love, they search for a perfect life partner for each other after finishing college. Jai falls in love with Meghna Pariyar (Manjari Phadnis) after spotting her in a club where two rough men were misbehaving with her.
He rescues her by tricking the duo, thus winning Meghna's heart. When Meghna and Jai get close to each other, Rotlu, Jiggy, Sandhya, and Shaleen are happy for Jai, but nobody notices that Aditi is missing Jai's company. Meghna informs Jai that her parents squabble but cannot live without each other.
Jai visits Meghna's parents and sees that her father, Mahesh (Rajat Kapoor), is an alcoholic who has much friction with his ex-wife Sheela (Kitu Gidwani). Due to the meeting, he misses Aditi's surprise birthday party. Aditi's feelings are hurt, so he goes late at night to wish her but is sent back.
