BanglaHunt Desk: Ranbir Kapoor and Katrina Kaif starrer Jagga Jasoos was released in 2016. Govinda was also taken in a scene in the film. But later the scene was cut and dropped by director Anurag Basu. Govinda was extremely angry about this. Finally, Anurag Basu explained the reason for his behavior.
In a recent interview, the director said that they were shooting in South Africa. Govinda also came there and shot. But whether he would come was a matter of great concern. In addition everything was pre-planned due to shooting abroad. Anurag said he could not take so much stress. So he was forced to skip the Govinda scene.
Earlier, in July 2016, Govinda had expressed her displeasure over the omission of her scene in a few tweets. He writes, ‘I have done my job as an actor. If the director doesn't like it, then it's up to him. For three years, the film has been in the headlines for various negative articles about Govinda alone. But when I was sick, I went to South Africa with medicine to shoot. '
The actor further wrote, ‘I was told that after going to South Africa, they would understand the script of the film. I have not taken any advance to sign the film, nor have I signed any contract. I have respect for the Kapoor family. I did this because he is my senior son. '
The film was produced by Ranbir himself. He took all the responsibility on his shoulders. Ranbir had earlier admitted that he had never made such a bad decision before. The film took about four years to complete. The actor said that the fault lies entirely with him and Anurag Basur. They started making the film without full screenplay.
Ranbir admits that it is irresponsible to cut off his scene with a legend like Govinda. But he said that he did this because he was compelled to do so. The character changed completely. At that time, Ranbir was busy promoting four of his films, said Anurag Basu.
All in all, it was too late to release the film. It cost about 130 crore rupees to make the picture. But accordingly, this picture fell flat on its face. The late Rishi Kapoor blamed director Anurag Basu for the failure of the film.
