‘This one is to sisterhood, to friendship and to breaking the mould,’ say Priyanka Chopra Jonas, Katrina Kaif and Alia Bhatt as they share their first pic together for Jee Le Zaraa


For years, girls had lamented that why, oh, why there is no female movie where the star cast are friends and go on a road trip like Dil Chahta Hai and Zindagi Na Milegi Dobara. However, today, Farhan Akhtar lit up the internet with the announcement of his new directorial venture Jee Le Zaraa starring Priyanka Chopra Jonas, Alia Bhatt and Katrina Kaif in the lead where the girls finally go on a female road trip and celebrating the bond of sisterhood, giving a final catharsis to women audience.

Now, the leading ladies of the film, took to social media to share the story of how they embarked on the film. Sharing the first picture of the lead cast, Priyanka gave the background of how the vision culminated into the film Jee Le Zaraa. She 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 wrote, “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.”

Alia and Katrina also shared the story behind the idea of Jee Le Zaraa along with their picture.
