Years after the success of movies like Dil Chahta Hai and Zindagi Na Milegi Dobara, Farhan Khan announced an all girls road trip movie in August this year. Starring three biggest movie stars - Alia Bhatt, Priyanka Chopra Jonas and Katrina Kaif, this one has been creating buzz ever since.
After the announcement, Priyanka Chopra took to her Instagram and sharing a picture with Katrina Kaif and Alia Bhatt wrote an emotional note. Her post read, 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!
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."
