12 Aug – Two years after her last Hindi movie, Priyanka Chopra is making her Bollywood comeback with a new movie, "Jee Le Zaraa".

The news was shared by Priyanka on her Instagram account with a photo of her and co-stars Alia Bhatt and Katrina Kaif that was taken at the latter's house.


She wrote, "Let's rewind, to me musing about wanting to do another Hindi movie ASAP, on an unusually rainy night in Mumbai in Nov 2019. But it had to be the right one - different, cool, never been done before... I thought. The idea grew into a movie helmed by an all-female cast. There are not enough Hindi movies that are female multi-starrers. This led to an impulsive phone call... to my 2 real friends about this idea that involved 3 on-screen girlfriends. A celebration of friendship we called it!!"

"Katrina, Alia, and I enthusiastically met in February 2020 (as seen in this picture), just before the world shut down, to discuss who we could trust to bring this vision to life for us and our choice was unanimous... Farhan and Ritesh, Zoya and Reema. We had all worked with @excelmovies and @tigerbabyfilms individually so this seemed perfect. It just so happened that Farhan was working on a female road trip movie at the same time! Talk about all the stars aligning!!"

Priyanka stated that after three years to align their schedules, she, Alia, and Katrina are finally able to unite for the said project.

"This one is to sisterhood... to friendship and to breaking the mould!! Can't wait to get on the road with Aloo and Katty. My heart's smiling. See you at the movies!" she added.

It is noted that Priyanka's last Hindi film was the 2019's "The Sky is Pink" co-starring Farhan Akhtar and Zaira Wasim.

On the other hand, the actress is also currently working on "The Matrix 4" and the series, "Citadel".
