Farhan Akhtar stalls ‘Jee Le Zaraa’ again?

Azha Khan



Farhan Akhtar has reportedly delayed his directorial, ‘Jee Le Zaraa’ and will now focus on acting with ‘Campeones’ helmed by Aamir Khan Productions.

‘Jee Le Zaraa’ would have starred three leading ladies from the Indian film industry including Katrina Kaif, Alia Bhatt and Priyanka Chopra Jonas.

However, a source told Bollywood Hungama, “Priyanka Chopra was not able to commit the dates to shoot in 2023 due to her Hollywood commitments and asked Farhan if they could shoot for Jee Le Zaraa in 2024. While Farhan was fine with it, Alia Bhatt is already committed to shooting for Ramayana and Baiju Bawra in 2024. Given that the two films are going to be taxing, she couldn’t align her date for next year. When nothing fell in place, Farhan decided to delay the film until the right time.”

It is reported that Akhtar had tried to recast the film but efforts failed. The source added, “Much like Alia, Katrina also had plans in life and after a point was not able to commit to shoot for the film much in advance. The dates kept getting changed and finally, Farhan had no option but put it on the back burner. At this point of time, Jee Le Zaraa is not happening, at least with the same cast and we need to see if the makers revamp it at a later stage.”
