Reports also claimed that Priyanka Chopra Jonas chose against starring in the movie since Alia couldn’t commit to 2024.
The casting controversy surrounding Farhan Akhtar’s movie “Jee Le Zaraa” won’t go away any time soon. Recently, there were rumors that Priyanka Chopra had quit the movie, and now, if rumors are to be believed, even Katrina Kaif has made the decision to skip this movie about the camaraderie between three females on a journey. Although the cause of the same has not yet been made public, people are now undoubtedly upset with the casting. According to the same reports, Kiara Advani and Anushka Sharma have emerged as the new candidates for the movie after PeeCee and Kat opted to leave it.
Fans, who were only hooked on this movie due of a fantastic cast, are now unsure of the casting. According to reports, Priyanka Chopra Jonas opted to quit on the movie because Alia couldn’t commit to 2024, and Katrina Kaif followed suit almost quickly. When the news spread, online viciously mocked Alia and the film’s casting issues.
According to a report, Katrina left the movie right away after Priyanka Chopra. The actress from The Citadel wanted to start the movie in 2024, but Alia was already booked for two movies at that time—Nitesh Tiwari’s The Ramayana and Sanjay Leela Bhansali’s Baiju Bawra. Reddit users mocked Alia Bhatt in a discussion thread and offered excuses why the movie won’t be made.
I expect it to be Alia, a commenter said when asked why the two actresses left the movie together. Her arrogant demeanor and pregnancy had already changed the dates, which presumably irritated both of them. A different user wrote, “The only two people I wanted to see together onscreen, and now they’ve opted out.” A person said, “That’s wonderful. I love how Priyanka came up with the idea for this movie. It’s impossible to make a movie without the person who came up with it, so I hope this movie stalls.
A few online users believed that “if PC has opted out is confirm then surely Kat would too, as her collaboration with PC was the only glue, and she would never do the project with Alia DP or Alia Bebo” “Deepika, Anushka, and Alia?” was a new casting suggestion. However, when people began offering more options and a new title for the movie, the thread started to get amusing. “Urghh I can now sense Shanaya Ananya and Suhana as the final casting,” one person remarked. And then the movie had a tonne of new titles. User: “Then the movie would have to be renamed to Pi le Zara, as people would need to be drunk before they agree to watch it.”
Currently, Jee Le Zaraa is having a lot of problems because the casting, which was supposed to be a scoop, has lost its allure. I was really thrilled for this movie, but with the actor changes and everything, it doesn’t feel like the same movie anymore, said a sane internet user. It would be preferable if they simply shelved it at this time and gave us something better with the OG cast later on.
With Kiara Advani and Anushka Sharma filling in for Alia Bhatt, the anticipation that Priyanka Chopra, Katrina Kaif, and Alia Bhatt would team up for a ZNMD-style movie has subsided. Even this cast has not been officially confirmed. Hope the rumours die down and Farhan Akhtar can work out a deal with all three divas to keep the original cast together.
