Ranbir Kapoor and Katrina Kaif‘s much-awaited film Jagga Jasoos gathered very mixed reviews at the Box Office. It was an exemplary movie in terms of its sheer cinematic brilliance but unfortunately, it didn’t perform as per the expectations.

Post the debates settling down, Rishi Kapoor expressed his disappointment about the film in an interview to Midday. He said,

“Till Wednesday, Anurag Basu was still mixing the film. Can you imagine that? You (Anurag Basu) don’t take an opinion from anybody. He’s such an irresponsible director that he doesn’t complete the film. It was supposed to release three times in the past two years, but it kept getting delayed.”

“Ranbir is the producer too, and his neck is in the noose. It is ridiculous that a producer hadn’t seen his product a day ahead of the film’s release. There is somebody else’s money involved in this. I trusted you, and this is what you give us? Ranbir hasn’t held back on spending money on it. You even threw Govinda out of the film. If you don’t want Govinda to work in your film, why did you ask him in the first place?”

“I got to know that Ranbir was pouring in money like crazy in this. I don’t interfere in Ranbir’s career and I do not get to know anything either. I would like to add here that I am grateful to Anurag for giving Ranbir a lovely film like Barfi! But why hide a film?”

After the interview Anurag Basu took to Twitter to say this:

At the trailer launch of the Sanjay Dutt starer Bhoomi, RK Jr. was asked about his father’s statements. He asserted that he doesn’t agree with his dad’s remarks. Ranbir said:

My father is a very emotional man. I think whatever he said was to protect me, from where he was coming. I don’t necessarily agree with what he did or what he said.  Jagga Jasoos is something that we have been working on for three and a half years. We all were aware of what we were doing and what was being made. Sometimes you succeed sometimes you fail. I don’t look at it (Jagga Jasoos) as a failure, I look at it as a learning. I think it has given me a lot, the experience of working with Anurag Basu and everyone on the film. So yes, I can’t answer for someone else, but I don’t necessarily agree with it.”

Ranbir was at the event accompanying Dutt as he will be playing the later in an upcoming biopic and hence, is spending a lot of time shadowing the actor.
