Earlier this week, Ranbir's father, veteran actor Rishi Kapoor dismissed Anurag Basu as "irresponsible" citing reasons like chopping off a much-expected cameo featuring Govinda and the film's many delays. In his interview with mid-day, he also added that he does not have much to say about Jagga Jasoos except that he thought it was 20 minutes too long.
A day later, Rishi Kapoor's scathing attack on the director was noted by Govinda, who thanked the 64-year-old actor for telling mid-day: "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?" Mr Kapoor was referring to the director, who has not responded to the accusations yet.
Days before Jagga Jasoos released, a source told NDTV.com that Mr Basu was still not happy with the final edit and that he's working on the dialogues, background score and the visual effects - it also missed the deadline for a section of the international market.
Meanwhile, about Ranbir Kapoor and Katrina Kaif, the Jagga Jasoos co-stars and rumoured exes, Saibal Chatterjee wrote in his review for NDTV: "It is just as well that Katrina Kaif plays second fiddle, letting her co-star (Ranbir Kapoor) do all the heavy lifting." Jagga Jasoos marks Ranbir Kapoor and Katrina Kaif's third collaboration after Ajab Prem Ki Ghazab Kahani and Raajneeti.
