An insider said, “While everyone was excited to go on a fun road trip from September this year, all the plans have changed. The bulk dates of the three protagonists (Priyanka Chopra, Alia Bhatt and Katrina Kaif) are not matching for now, and this has led to an indefinite delay in the film (Jee Le Zaraa). A new timeline will be chalked only once everything will be locked.”
“There’s a high possibility of it being pushed to next year’s end. One shall have clarity within the next few months,” added the source.
As per the same sources, the script and screenplay for Jee Le Zaraa have been locked but now due to the date issues of Priyanka Chopra, Alia Bhatt and Katrina Kaif, the team and everyone waiting for the film will have to wait a little longer.
