Recently Rishi Kapoor slammed Jagga Jasoos director Anurag Basu for his 'unprofessional' ways during and post the making of the Ranbir Kapoor-Katrina Kaif starrer, even calling the director out on chopping off the much talked about Govinda cameo.

Now, Govinda has expressed his gratitude to Rishi for taking out the time to address Basu's cutting out of Govinda's part in Bollywood's first mainstream adventure-drama musical.

"Thank you Rishi sir. At last you showed concern. Good blood never speaks wrong (sic). I didn't react much because I have huge respect for the Kapoor family.  I can never forget the love that the legendary Raj Kapoor saab showered upon me when I was just a newcomer. I truly feel that it's the director's (Anurag) call to do what he wants to do with his film, but a little professionalism is expected," said Govinda, according to a Bombay Times report.

The actor, known for his impeccable comic timing and eccentric dance moves, had reportedly traveled all the way to South Africa to shoot for Jagga Jasoos even while he wasn't keeping well.

"I had no clue what they were up to. They were busy with their own things and I wasn't even informed about it," Govinda said about his cameo receiving the axe, according to an NDTV report.

Jagga Jasoos has collected over Rs 53 crore since its release, and first time producer Ranbir Kapoor said that he would compensate the distributors of the movie if it did not do well at the box office.
