"All the top actors assume the women have the meaty roles while the men are  mere shadows," a source tells WION of Priyanka Chopra, Katrina Kaif and Alia Bhatt's 'Jee Le Zaraa' casting woes. 

'Jee Le Zaraa', Farhan Akhtar’s girl-bonding road film seems to have  hit a road block.


It needs three A-lister heroes to go with the three female superstars Priyanka Chopra Jonas, Katrina Kaif and Alia Bhatt. But the heroes are not  showing any inclination to be chivalrous.

A source close to director Farhan Akhtar says,  “It  is tough casting the male leads when  the female leads are already  in place. All the top actors assume the women have the meaty roles while the men are  mere shadows. Lekin aisa nahin hai. The men in  'Jee Le Zaraa' have very important  roles  to play. Lekin abb inko kaun samjhaye (who is  going to explain to them?).”

Apparently, Farhan Akhtar wants three male superstars to be paired with his trio of super-ladies. He may end up casting himself as one of the leads to set an example for other  top-notch leading men who are wary of being seen in the company of assertive women.
