Zoya Akhtar in a recent interview said that it was Katrina Kaif and Alia Bhatt who called her stating that they want to do a film together after Priyanka Chopra called them. And with that Farhan Akhtar announced Jee Le Zaraa this year, which shall feature the above three women, and the movie shall be based on an all-female road trip, the shooting shall start the next year 2022.

In an interview with Film Companion, Zoya Akhtar said, “The only reason where you can do it now is that all the players involved wanted to do it. Even if 10 years ago there were three big female stars, filmmakers, producers who would say ‘Let’s do this’, it could have happened. I think it’s alignment. I think it’s intent firstly. They are huge, three of them, they are amazing and they are massive. And what’s beautiful about them is that they are distinct personalities. There’s nobody that’s like the other.”

She added, “Farhan had an idea that he had bounced, saying ‘I want to do this with girls’. He had come up with it and wanted to do this. He had told me one line. And very independently I was contacted by the actresses (Alia Bhatt and Katrina Kaif) not knowing about Farhan saying that, ‘We want to work together’ because Priyanka had called them. It just aligned. And I think if this had happened 10 years ago, it would have happened if these were the same players.” as quoted by Hindustan Times.
