Anurag Basu’s much delayed film Jagga Jasoos, starring Ranbir Kapoor and Katrina Kaif was supposed to hit screens on April 7, 2017. However, it seems like fans will need to wait some more.
The film has already faced many problems following Katrina and Ranbir’s breakup. A source close to the team reveals to Bayside Journal that, “Anurag Basu is often known to re-shoot films, but this time he isn’t very happy with the final content and wants to re-shoot several scenes. In fact, this time, his film has got delayed a lot.”
It is a well-known fact that Ranbir and Katrina’s story had a sad ending and it would be very difficult for them to work together. There were also talks in the industry that the cold war between the duo delayed the film. Additionally, there were rumours that there were some 28-29 songs (small songs) in the film that still needed to be locked. Apparently, in the film, Ranbir uses lyrics instead of dialogues.
“Katrina is not very keen on re-shooting because of personal issues. It is going to be tough to get the two together again. Also, Anurag has shot these songs, but he still needs to shoot and pick scenes where they can go perfectly,” states the source.
However, addressing the delay reports, director Anurag Basu tweeted out, “#JaggaJasoos is a Family Holiday film. Since exams r pushed at most of the places. We r contemplating the delay. Only IF v get a better Date.”
