Three of the biggest actors in India are teaming up to endeavor into Bollywood’s first-ever all-female road trip film- Jee Le Zaraa. On August 10, Priyanka Chopra, Katrina Kaif and Alia Bhatt announced that they will be doing a new film together. Priyanka Chopra took to her social media to announce her upcoming Hindi film titled Jee Le Zaraa.
To be helmed by Farhan Akhtar, the movie will be based on the lead characters commencing a journey on the road. Bollywood has had several films that show road trips, and have been straightaway loved by the audience. Road trip movies normally deal with a lot of human emotions amidst fun and cavorting around a new destination. Such films in the past have shown both male and female characters enjoying a trip whilst sorting out their personal lives, which has fans anticipating Jee Le Zaraa to be a path breaking one.
Another reason that piques our interest when it comes to Jee Le Zaraa, is the casting coop it has managed to pull off. Three female megastars, in their own right, will be driving this project, and in turn the box-office numbers on their shoulders. In an industry that is still male superstar-driven, this certainly stands out as quite a statement, even if it wasn’t proposing to.
Jee Le Zaraa shoot is set to begin in 2022. Produced by Farhan Akhtar and Ritesh Sidhwani’s Excel Entertainment and Zoya Akhtar and Reema Kagti’s Tiger Baby Films, Jee Le Zaraa brings Farhan back in the director’s chair 10 years after Don 2 (2011).
