Jee Le Zaraa announcement
It was in August 2021 that Jee Le Zaraa was announced. Priyanka, Katrina and Alia shared the teaser, and wrote, "Did someone say road trip? #JeeLeZaraa." Post that, Alia also shared a picture of herself with Priyanka and Katrina, and wrote, "2 years ago 3 girls came together with 1 dream There was only one place to go to make that dream come true; to 4 of the funnest dream-makers and storytellers in the business @faroutakhtar @zoieakhtar @reemakagti1 @ritesh_sid And now 50 Zoom calls later. Countless laughs later. With hearts full of love and excitement. Here we are. #JeeLeZaraa." Meanwhile, Katrina also shared the same picture of the trio and wrote, "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 a and the sky’s the limit."
Meanwhile, Priyanka wrote that in November 2019, she was musing about doing another Hindi movie, but wanted to do the right one- something that has never been done before. "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 2 real friends about this idea that involved 3 on-screen girlfriends. A celebration of friendship we called it!! 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," she wrote.
Excel Entertainment was founded by Ritesh Sidhwani and Farhan Akhtar in 1999. From having won national awards for their first couple of films like Dil Chahta Hai and Rock On, to being India's official entry at the 92nd Academy Awards for Gully Boy, this duo’s always made a mark in films over the years. Excel Entertainment in collaboration with Tiger Baby will be coming together for ‘Jee Le Zaraa’
