Since its announcement, Jee Le Zaraa has generated considerable excitement among fans. Farhan Akhtar is directing the movie. It was originally intended to feature three prominent A-listers of Bollywood: Alia Bhatt, Katrina Kaif, and Priyanka Chopra Jonas. However, recent developments reveal that the movie has been delayed. Reports now indicate that Priyanka Chopra Jonas has left the project, while Katrina Kaif is on the verge of doing the same.
Recently, Bollywood Hungama reported that Priyanka has chosen to exit the movie because of Citadel 2. A source informed them stating, “Priyanka had to make a choice between Citadel 2 and Jee Le Zara as both the projects were expected to be shot in the same time frame. After contemplating all aspects, she picked Citadel 2.0 over Jee Le Zara.”
A few hours later, they reported that Katrina Kaif is also about to call it quits. They have not stated the reason for it yet. Meanwhile, the makers are reportedly considering Anushka Sharma and Kiara Advani for the lead roles in the movie. We are eagerly awaiting an official announcement.
Just a few weeks back, Pinkvilla reported that director Farhan Akhtar has put the movie Jee Le Zaraa on hold as the lead actress, Alia, Katrina and Priyanka have busy schedules. Till then Farhan Akhtar has signed Aamir Khan’s remake of Campeones. But, now only time will tell who will star in the movie.
On the work front, Katrina Kaif has Tiger 3 with Salman Khan. The movie is slated to release during Diwali this year. Apart from that, she also has Merry Christmas with Vijay Sethupathi. On the other hand, Priyanka Chopra Jonas was seen in Russo Brothers’ Citadel with Richard Madden. She now has a film Heads of State with John Cena and Idris Elba.
