“This one is to sisterhood…to friendship"
Priyanka Chopra has announced that she is making a return to Bollywood.
The actress recently went on Instagram to reveal that she is coming back to Indian cinema with an upcoming film, Jee Le Zaraa.
Jee Le Zaraa will have an all-female cast, according to Chopra. The diva stated that she will appear alongside Bollywood bombshells Katrina Kaif and Alia Bhatt.
Priyanka Chopra’s announcement came on Wednesday, August 11, 2021.
Chopra uploaded an image to Instagram of her alongside her upcoming co-stars. According to her caption, she “can’t wait” to start filming.
The caption reads:
“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 two real friends about this idea that involved three on-screen girlfriends.
“A celebration of friendship we called it!”
Chopra’s caption continues to discuss her meetings with Katrina and Alia about their upcoming project:
“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!”
Revealing the subject surrounding Jee Le Zara, Priyanka Chopra said that the film will embrace the concept of sisterhood and friendship.
The actress concluded:
“And here we are today…#JeeLeZaraa…it only took three 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.”
Priyanka Chopra’s chosen collaborators Zoya Akhtar, Farhan Akhtar, and Ritesh Sidhwani all commented to express their excitement to work on the new film.
Zoya Akhtar said: “I love it when you muse on rainy days. Don’t ever stop.”
Farhan Akhtar commented: “So looking forward to getting the engine running on this one.”
Ritesh Sidhwani wrote: “Can’t wait to hit the road with this squad.”
Chopra’s co-stars also took to their own Instagram pages to announce the upcoming Bollywood masterpiece.
Sharing the same image of the trio, part of Alia Bhatt’s caption reads: “Two years ago three girls came together with one dream.”
Also speaking of her excitement for Jee Le Zaraa, Katrina Kaif posted to Instagram to say:
“This makes my heart smile.
“I just love these girls and being around each other is just too much fun always – combine that with a great script, awesome director, and a road trip and the sky’s the limit.”
