"This in itself is a marketing dream"
Vicky Kaushal is rumoured to be joining the cast of Jee Le Zaraa.
According to reports, the Sardar Udham actor has been offered a role in Farhan Akhtar’s next film which features Katrina Kaif, Priyanka Chopra and Alia Bhatt in the lead roles.
A source revealed: “The decision of approaching Vicky Kaushal to feature in the film is pure gold.
“Now add to that the plan is to cast him opposite Katrina Kaif, which will make Jee Le Zaraa the first film the couple feature in together.
“This in itself is a marketing dream and makes promoting a film that much easier.”
The source added: “With Farhan Akhtar casting himself and now Vicky also being roped in that leaves just one male lead role vacant and casting one person is far easier than three, and that too in a film that is based on three female leads.”
Jee Le Zaraa, which is based on an all-female road trip, is written by Zoya Akhtar and Reema Kagti.
Ritesh Sidhwani and Farhan Akhtar will co-produce the film which is set to release in 2023.
If Vicky comes on board, Jee Le Zaraa will mark his first professional collaboration with Katrina.
