Farhan Akhtar fans would be happy to learn that he will be directing Jee Le Zaraa once again. Excel Entertainment, his production company, announced a film centered on a road trip on Tuesday. Priyanka Chopra Jonas, Katrina Kaif, and Alia Bhatt will star in the film. All of the female leads were ecstatic to share the news, but little did we know that Alia was the one who came up with the concept in 2015. She has indicated an interest in appearing in the Dil Chahta Hai sequel.
Jee Le Zaraa: Alia Bhatt Suggested Dil Chahta Hai Sequel
During an interview with Hindustan Times, the brilliant actress expressed her desire to appear in the Dil Chahta Hai sequel while promoting Shaandaar. She wanted Parineeti Chopra and Shraddha Kapoor to join her for the movie. “Pari (Parineeti), Shraddha, and I should work in the sequel to Dil Chahta Hai (2001) as three friends. I think that’s a superb idea. It will be so much fun. Should I call Farhan regarding the film, and make it happen.” Farhan had laughed off being told about Alia’s suggestion in another interview with the newspaper. But just to think about it.
Farhan said, “Through you people, I found out that Alia wants to film a DCH part 2 with Shraddha and Parineeti. That (idea) has stuck with me, and I’m still thinking about it, but this time with three girls (as the protagonists). We’ll see how things go.”
Farhan and Alia discussed it at the screening of Kapoor & Sons, with the former surprising Alia by sharing her views. “I met her during a screening of Kapoor & Sons. ‘Alia, I assume you told someone that there should be a Dil Chahta Hai part two with three females, and I wanted to let you know that I may be considering it,’ I informed her after the screening. ‘Oh, really?’ she said. ‘Yes, and you will adore it when you see it (laughs),’ Alia said. ‘How sick and How cruel!’ he added.
Farhan’s producing company has already released two road trip films, Dil Chahta Hai and Zindagi Na Milegi Dobara.
