Farhan Akhtar's announcement of his film, ‘Jee Le Zaraa’, sparked outrage on the internet two years ago. The plot promised a road journey focusing on the friendship of three female friends, played by Priyanka Chopra, Katrina Kaif, and Alia Bhatt. Fans were ecstatic at the idea of seeing three iconic ladies of Indian cinema, each of whom reigned supreme in their respective fields, collaborate on a film.
However, the director revealed that the project suffered multiple obstacles due to schedule conflicts. However, current sources claim that Priyanka Chopra's qualms about the script may be the underlying cause for the film's cancellation.
Farhan Akhtar previously told Variety, "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 film now has a destiny of its own. We'll see when it has to happen."
A recent report, however, reveals a different story concerning the delay of Priyanka Chopra, Katrina Kaif, and Alia Bhatt's movie, Jee Le Zaraa. A source close to the portal revealed, “The truth is that Priyanka Chopra did not like the script and said no to it. She was supposed to come to India for sister Parineeti Chopra’s wedding and at the same time sign the film’s contract. But things could not be taken ahead because there were creative differences.”
Priyanka could not attend her cousin Parineeti Chopra's recent wedding in Udaipur due to prior work commitments, according to her mother.
The portal’s source further added, “When a film fails to happen as per the initial plan, it takes time for the director, and also to envisage a new way and decide whether he or she wants to take forward that story or not. Any which way it's a dated story now as it's already been delayed too much. It might take another two years for the film to go on floor. The makers need to ensure that the story remains relevant for that time.”
It should be noted that neither the director nor the performers have officially acknowledged these reports.
