'Katrina worked wholeheartedly on Jagga Jasoos': Ranbir Kapoor
Ranbir Kapoor was all praise for his Jagga Jasoos co-star Katrina Kaif, and director Anurag Basu, saying they worked whole-heartedly on the film
Ever since their rather public break-up, there’s been plenty of talk about how Ranbir Kapoor and Katrina Kaif would complete the remaining portions of the Anurag Basu-directed Jagga Jasoos. There were several reports that conjectured on how the two stars were avoiding each other on the sets, shooting separately and limiting the number of shots together.
But it would seem that Ranbir certainly believes that Katrina has fulfilled her commitments towards the film in a professional manner. Ranbir was quoted as saying that Katrina had worked “whole-heartedly” on Jagga Jasoos, in this Times of India report.
The actor had apparently attended a special screening of the Alia Bhatt-Fawad Khan-Sidharth Malhotra starrer Kapoor & Sons on Wednesday night when he was asked about Jagga Jasoos, and when its first look was expected to be out.
“There are a few days left,” said Ranbir, adding that he was “extremely excited”. He then went on to praise the efforts of his director and co-star in the film: “Anurag, Katrina and I worked on the film whole-heartedly. We are presenting the first look next month. Once you see the trailer and the teaser, I hope everyone likes it.”
Jagga Jasoos has been plagued by several delays, with some news reports claiming that it would only be out around August. A June release was previously planned for the film.
Recently, elaborate sets were created in Mumbai for the film’s shoot, to film major portions of the climax, for which the crew initially planned to fly to Morocco. Instead, the team recreated Morocco in Mumbai, and it is believed that a far shorter schedule — of around 10 days — will now be planned for Morocco.
"The Yash Chopra Foundation will bear all other costs too associated with vaccinating the workers," said Yash Raj Films.
As someone who was born on the cusp of the millennial generation, I never saw Rishi Kapoor as a heartthrob but only as a dependable, first-rate actor.
Randhir Kapoor, who was hospitalised earlier this week after testing positive for COVID-19, said he will be discharged soon.
