Kolkata: Amongst the most game-changing stars of our times, Kareena Kapoor Khan, is all set to turn producer for the very first time with a slick, edgy, new-age thriller. In collaboration with Ekta Kapoor’s Balaji Telefilms, the yet untitled film will be directed by Hansal Mehta, who after the success of Scam 1992, has cemented his position as one of the industry’s most critically and commercially acclaimed directors.

This collaboration marks the coming together of two strong female voices, Ekta Kapoor and Kareena Kapoor Khan, both of whom have paved their own paths and shattered stereotypes to write their own rules.

Interestingly, while the blockbuster Veere Di Wedding was Kareena’s first film after the birth of her son Taimur, this film will be her first after her second baby, incidentally, both being produced by Ekta’s Balaji Telefilms.

Inspired by a true life incident, the story is set in the UK and is scheduled to go on floors soon.

Excited to turn producer for the first time, Kareena says, “Very honoured and excited to work as a producer on this film with Ekta whom my family has known for years and ofcourse to be directed by Hansal for the first time. I am a huge fan of Hansal’s films and to be working with him for the first time will be special. There are a lot of firsts on this film and I cannot wait to begin this journey.”

Ekta says, “Kareena Kapoor Khan is a dynamite combination of star power and talent. We last worked together on Veere Di Wedding which was probably the biggest hit headlined by a female star. The second time’s always a charm and I’m confident this one too will excite the audiences. To have Hansal Mehta, one of the most prolific filmmakers of our times tell this story makes it all the more exciting! Get ready for one of the most intriguing and shocking mainstream films thus far!”

Filmmaker Hansal says, “Our aim with this film is to create a fresh, gripping and moody thriller with Kareena playing a character that I am hoping will do justice to her immense talent as an actor. I look forward to venturing on this journey with Ekta and Kareena, both of whom have accomplished so much in their respective careers and are absolute powerhouses.”

Meanwhile Farhan Akhtar’s directorial return  Je Le Zaara stars Priyanka Chopra, Katrina Kaif and Alia Bhatt in the lead.

Introducing the next road trip film in their lineup, after Dil Chahta Hai and Zindagi Na Milegi Dobara— Excel Entertainment extends this genre to the girls this time, in collaboration with Tiger Baby for a project titled Jee Le Zaraa.

Written by Zoya Akhtar, Farhan and Reema Kagti; produced by Reema, Zoya, Ritesh Sidhwani and Farhan, what makes this even more special is that the film will be directed by Farhan and will be releasing in 2023. So, fasten your seat-belts, it’s about time the girls took the car out!

Truly, this announcement of Jee Le Zaraa two decades later, is one most exciting ways to celebrate a milestone for Excel Entertainment in collaboration with Tiger Baby, as the popular demand for another road trip chronicle turns into reality for the audience!
