The cult classic film Dil Chahta Hai marks 20 years since its release today (10 August). Since its release, the film redefined the ideas of love and friendship and became a staple for anyone who loves travel. On the occasion, the makers of Dil Chahta Hai had a surprise for fans, as they announced their upcoming road trip film Jee Le Zaraa. The film stars Priyanka Chopra, Katrina Kaif, and Alia Bhatt.

Alia shared the news on social media with the caption, “Did someone say road trip? #JeeLeZaraa.” The film is directed by Farhan Akhtar and written by Farhan, Zoya Akhtar, and Reema Kagti.


Jee Le Zaraa is co-produced by Ritesh Sidhwani (Excel Entertainment) and Tiger Baby Films owned by Zoya Akhtar and Reema Kagti.

Incidentally, Dil Chahta Hai’s writer-directed Farhan Akhtar had revealed, years ago, that he had been toying with the idea of an all-female reboot of the film. While it's unclear if this film is a materialisation of that idea, this is definitely something to look forward to.

Farhan and Excel Entertainment had also worked on Zindagi Na Milegi Dobara, a touching coming-of-age tale also deeply entrenched in the theme of travel and friendships. The film also starred Katrina Kaif and was directed by Zoya Akhtar.

Zoya shared a video that stated that three boys went to Goa in 2001 with Dil Chahta Hai. Three boys again went on a trip to Spain in 2011 with Zindagi na Milegi Dobara. "About time the girls took the car out", Zoya captioned the video.

Farhan and Priyanka have worked together earlier in Dil Dhadakne Do and The Sky is Pink.

Jee Le Zaraa is scheduled to release in 2023.
