In a surprising turn of events, Anushka Sharma has turned down the opportunity to step into Priyanka Chopra‘s shoes in Farhan Akhtar‘s highly anticipated film, Jee Le Zara. The news comes after Priyanka Chopra’s sudden exit from the project due to her commitment to her Hollywood venture, Citadel 2, leaving the filmmakers in a state of uncertainty once again.
Reports suggest that Anushka Sharma was initially intrigued by the prospect of leading a female-centric narrative focused on self-discovery. However, conflicting shooting schedules prevented her from committing to the film. Balancing her personal life and professional obligations proved to be a challenge, and the requested time frame did not align with her existing commitments. Notably, Anushka Sharma’s schedule is tightly packed with combinations alongside esteemed actresses like Katrina Kaif and Alia Bhatt.
With the casting puzzle yet to be solved, Farhan Akhtar has made the decision to put Jee Le Zara on hold for now. He is set to star in Aamir Khan’s production, Champion, followed by his directorial venture, Don 3, featuring Ranveer Singh. Although Jee Le Zara had ambitious plans, the project remains in limbo at this point.
Stay tuned for further updates as Bollywood enthusiasts eagerly await news on the fate of Jee Le Zara and the search for a leading lady to join the cast alongside Farhan Akhtar.
