On the social media platform, Zoya Akhtar and Farhan Akhtar have created a lot of buzzes, The time she announced her ‘all-girls film, Jee Le Zara’ starring Priyanka Chopra, Alia Bhatt, and Katrina Kaif. Contrary to popular belief that the Akhtar siblings have orchestrated a casting coup, Now we know it was the other way round.
Zoya Akhtar has revealed that it was actually Bhatt and Kaif. Who had approached him to work in the same film together. The former BFF reportedly reached out to the director only after Priyanka Chopra got the call, In her latest interview with the film’s Companion.
Zoya Akhtar has said that Farhan Akhtar had an idea that he had bounced saying ‘I want to do this with girls’. He came along with it and wanted to do the same. He narrated a line to Zoya Akhtar. And Zoya Akhtar was approached very independently by actresses (Bhatt and Kaif), Who did not know at all about Farhan that ‘we want to work together’ because Priyanka Chopra had called him. It was just an alliance. And Zoya Akhtar feels that if it had happened about 10 years ago, then it would have happened if they were the same player.
Describing the personality of the three stars and their uniqueness, She has said that She is huge, 3 of them, he is amazing and he is huge. And what’s beautiful about them is that they are unique personalities. There is no one like the other.
Katrina, Priyanka, and Alia made headlines for announcing this exciting venture on their social media platform handles, Earlier this year.
Actress Priyanka took the lead in her post, which read, On an unusually rainy night in Mumbai in November 2019, he is reminded of his desire to do another Hindi film ASAP. But it had to be right – different, well, never done before… She thought. And there aren’t enough Hindi movies at all that are female multi-starrers. This led to an impulsive phone call about the idea to 2 real friends of the actress which included 3 on-screen girlfriends. Celebration of friendship as they are called!!
In February 2020, Alia Bhatt, Katrina Kaif, and I met enthusiastically, Just before the world closes, just to discuss who we can trust. And it was unanimous in her choice to bring this vision to life for us too… Reema, Ritesh, Zoya, and Farhan. All of them personally worked with @tigerbabyfilms and @excelmovies, That’s why it feels right. It happened that Farhan Akhtar was working on a female road trip film at the same time! Talk about all these stars aligning, She added.
She is here today… #JeeLeZaraa… It has only taken 3 years to align all his schedules. But they have been together and made it happen! This is for brotherhood… For friendship and for breaking the mold!! Can’t wait to head further down the road with Aloo and Katty. My heart is smiling See you at the movies. Her post is over.
However, a lot about this film is kept hidden. It is reportedly all set to go on floors in the year 2022.
