Ranbir Kapoor’s maiden venture as a producer may not have been as smooth a ride as he would have liked it, but things surely seem to be on track now. Jagga Jasoos starring him and Katrina Kaif has been in the making for over two years now and the actors have finally wrapped up the shooting of this much delayed film and have also zeroed in on a final release date for their film.
Pictures from the last day of shoot:
Ranbir was present at a recent awards function and when quizzed about the release date of the film, he confirmed the news by saying that Jagga Jasoos will open in theatres on July 14 this year and that the shoot for the film is complete. Ranbir further added, “ I am very happy with how it has turned out. We all know that it is my first film as a producer and I hope everyone supports and loves the film. I hope that the audience likes it too”.
Reports suggest that even though the movie was filmed a while back, some portions had to be re-shot and that is perhaps why it got delayed. The film initially went on the floors when the leading pair of the film was a couple in real life, but they broke up while the film was still being shot. So now Jagga Jasoos will be Ranbir Kappor’s and Katrina Kaif’s first movie post their alleged break up.
The movie is a musical adventure mystery and will have Ranbir playing the role of a detective of sorts as he sets out on a hunt to find his missing father, with Katrina’s character tagging along. The film apparently has 15 songs in total, all composed by Pritam.
Directed by Anurag Basu of ‘Barfi’ fame, it is distributed by UTV and Disney Pictures. Ranbir Kapoor is co-producing it under his banner ‘Picture Shuru Productions’ along with his director Anurag Basu.
