Post the release of the Zoya Akhtar directed Zindagi Na Milegi Doobara, with Hrithik Roshan, Farhan Akhtar and Abhay Deol on a road trip of self-discovery, and Katrina Kaif and Kalki Koechlin in key roles, there have been talks about the possibility of making a ‘on the road’ film with female protagonist. It’s been 10 years since then, and seems that finally, it’s happening with Farhan Akhtar back on the director’s seat 10 years after Don 2. Over the last few years, Farhan along with his sister, Zoya have been discussing a probable version of ZNMD with female protagonist, and they have finally locked a draft that has satisfied their creative bud.

“While Farhan acted in ZNMD, this time around, he will be directing this yet untitled film. It is written by him and Zoya, and though the concept of road trip remains the same, the narrative is diametrically different from what they did in the 2011 film. They have locked on the broad idea of this story through the lockdown,” revealed a source close to the development, adding further that the idea is to take in on floors sometime next year, as Farhan would have completed his acting commitments by then. He will next be seen in the Rakeysh Omprakash Mehra directed Toofan, and also start shooting for the Rakesh Sharma biopic, Saare Jahan Se Acha by the second half of this year. Zoya on the other hand too has locked the premise of her next directorial for the theatres, and we await more details on this at the moment.

The premise of the film calls for three female protagonists and Farhan is planning to cast Alia Bhatt as one of the three. “He has discussed the probable collaboration with Alia and she is definitely excited to come on board the film. More meetings will take place through the year, and everyone is optimistic on this association to work out. Apart from Alia, two more A-list actresses will join the gang, however, they are yet to decide on the names,” the source added.  Even Alia has a jam-packed calendar for 2021 with shoots of Brahmastra, Gangubai, Darlings, RRR, Karan Johar’s next directorial with Ranveer Singh among others. “Hence, they have mutually decided to collaborate on the film in 2022. Exact timelines of shoot will be known towards the end of year,” the source signed off. 

Stay tuned for more exclusive update on this film, as we continuously strive to know, who will the other two actresses be in the film.

I’d love to see Katrina and Deepika there, but Katrina probably won’t because she was in the first film. Maybe Deepika and Anushka if it has to happen. but ZNMD is fine as it is, why spoil it with a remake?

I love Alia and Deepika’s acting both. But Deepika has been in the industry for a little longer, and is known internationally. Alia’s still getting up there. Deepika has a higher status than Alia

Alia and dp are the same in status

Deepika , Alia, and Tapsee would be so good. Chunkey Pandey’s daughter (forgot her name) can be added too — in terms of glamour.
