- Jagga Jasoos will release in the UAE, Dubai and Singapore on Friday
- "We decided to open on Friday along with all the other centres in India"
- Jagga Jasoos marks Ranbir Kapoor's debut as a producer
Mr Parekh added that the worldwide distribution of Jagga Jasoos was on time only because of Disney's marketing. "If it wasn't for Disney's marketing I don't know what we would have done," he told IANS. New releases usually send prints overseas two weeks in advance.
Last week, sources told NDTV.com that Jagga Jasoos was still in post-production and that director Anurag Basu was engaged in improving the special effects, background score and other elements.
"Both Ranbir Kapoor and Katrina Kaif have been called in several times to dub a few extra lines, which Anurag Basu then adds and the editor has to fit it in," a source said.
Jagga Jasoos marks Ranbir Kapoor's debut as a producer - although he has been fairly vocal about not repeating the experience.
"It has been going on since my grandfather's (Raj Kapoor) time in 1950s. The style of making films where everyone makes money, not just the producers but also distributors and exhibitors. It is a healthy exercise. If someone loses money on something and you have made money out of it, it's good to compensate," Ranbir told PTI.
Jagga Jasoos also stars Sayani Gupta, Saswata Chatterjee and Adah Sharma.
