A few days ago, Katrina Kaif had started shooting for Ali Abbas Zafar's action thriller Tiger Zinda Hai in Austria. Now, she is back to shooting for Anurag Basu's action comedy adventure Jagga Jasoos, the same set where she injured her neck a few weeks ago.

It was earlier reported that Basu wanted to re-shoot a few portions of the film and thus, postponed its release to 12 May from 7 April. While he suggested the exam season as the reason behind the delay, it was speculated that the actual reason is the unwillingness of Kaif and her former boyfriend Ranbir Kapoor, the lead pair of the film, to re-shoot those portions and promote the film on the same platform.

Now, Kaif recently posted a picture of herself, sporting a tight-lipped exhausted look from the sets of the outdoor shoot of Jagga Jasoos. Her face spoke volumes of the grind that she has gone through while shooting for Jagga Jasoos, a film that has been under production for years.

Thus, a host of news platforms speculate that the release date of the film may be pushed even further. 12 May seems to be a suitable time to release the film by Basu's logic as it marks the starting of the summer vacation of school and college students. But if he continues to re-shoot portions of the film, much to the exhaustion of his actors, the long-awaited film may see yet another delay in its theatrical release.

Also, it was reported that Kapoor may not make a public appearance till the wrapping up of the shooting of Rajkumar Hirani's biopic of Sanjay Dutt, as a preventive measure to keep his looks under wraps. This may very well prove to be yet another hindrance in the smooth promotions of Jagga Jasoos.

Jagga Jasoos also stars Adah Sharma and is co-produced by Kapoor's Picture Dekho Production, Basu and Siddharth Roy Kapur. It is currently expected to release on 12 May.
