We are still to wrap our heads around the fact that Priyanka Chopra, Katrina Kaif and Alia Bhatt are coming together for a movie. Earlier this morning, Farhan Akhtar announced on social media that he would be directing a film called Jee Le Zaara starring Priyanka, Katrina and Alia. This news was met with shock and joy by netizens around the globe. Now, Priyanka Chopra has revealed how the idea for Jee Le Zaara came about.
“Let’s rewind, to me musing about wanting to do another Hindi movie ASAP, on an unusually rainy night in Mumbai in Nov 2019. But it had to be the right one – different, cool, never been done before… I thought. The idea grew into a movie helmed by an all-female cast. There are not enough Hindi movies that are female multi-starters. This led to an impulsive phone call… to my 2 real friends about this idea that involved 3 on-screen girlfriends. A celebration of friendship we called it,” Priyanka said on Instagram.
“Katrina, Alia, and I enthusiastically met in February 2020 (as seen in this picture), just before the world shut down, to discuss who we could trust to bring this vision to life for us and our choice was unanimous… Farhan and Ritesh, Zoya and Reema. We had all worked with @excelmovies and @tigerbabyfilms individually so this seemed perfect. It just so happened that Farhan was working on a female road trip movie at the same time! Talk about all the stars aligning!! And here we are today… #JeeLeZaraa… It only took 3 years to align all our schedules but we stuck together and got it done! This one is to sisterhood… to friendship and to breaking the mould!! Can’t wait to get on the road with Aloo and Katty. My heart’s smiling. See you at the movies,” she added.
Jee Le Zaraa has been written by Farhan Akhtar, Zoya Akhtar and Reema Kagti and the film will be produced by Excel Entertainment and Tiger Baby Films.
