Prior to Don 3, Farhan Akhtar was to direct another project. Ever since Jee Le Zaraa was announced with Priyanka Chopra, Katrina Kaif and Alia Bhatt, fans have been eagerly waiting for an update. However, in recent times, it was reported that Chopra had exited the project as she is going to begin shooting Citadel season 2. Following that rumours were rife that Katrina Kaif was also parting ways. However, it seems like all are still on board and the dates are the issue.
Farhan Akhtar on putting Jee Le Zaraa on hold: “I’ve started genuinely believing that that film now has a destiny of its own”
“We just have issues with dates, and the actor’s strike that’s happened has put Priyanka’s dates into a huge tizzy with what can happen and what can’t, so I’ve started genuinely believing that that film now has a destiny of its own. It’ll happen when it has to, we’ll see,” Farhan Akhtar told Variety.
Back in 2021, Akhtar had stated that Jee Le Zaraa, is his attempt to see the world through the gaze of women. He said, “Whether it’s a drama, comedy or thriller, there should be films made about women. That balance is healthy for the creative world. Where you have the male point of view, you also have the female point of view on things. Emotionally, the construct of the two is similar on a certain plane yet different. To see the world through women’s eyes is important in popular culture. The more we embrace it, the healthier it will be for society.”
Written by Zoya Akhtar, Farhan Akhtar, and Reema Kagti; produced by Reema Kagti, Zoya Akhtar, Ritesh Sidhwani & Farhan Akhtar, the film was supposed to go on floors in 2023.
