It is about time that the girls hit the road to take us on a rollercoaster ride of adventure. Making this vision come into reality on celluloid is the three megastars Priyanka Chopra, Katrina Kaif, and Alia Bhatt. While the announcement of their film, Jee Le Zaraa, has already taken the internet by storm, but did you know it was the Global Icon along with leading ladies who made the film happen?!
Yes! You heard it correct. Priyanka Chopra revealed in an Instagram post that in 2019 she was contemplating wanting to do another Hindi movie, but something that was never done before in the Hindi Cinema, and that is how the ball started rolling.
The power icon wrote, “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-starrers. 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!!”
She further added, “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!!”
Excited to start the female-led project, Katrina said, “This makes my heart smile. I just love these girls and being around each other is just too much fun always – combine that with a great script, awesome director, and a road trip and a and the sky’s the limit.”
Alia also shared the picture with a sweet message.
Jee Le Zaraa is written by Zoya Akhtar, Farhan Akhtar and Reema Kagti. Directed by Farhan Akhtar, Jee Le Zaraa will be produced under the banner of Excel Entertainment and Tiger Baby.
