Ranbir Kapoor starrer Jagga Jasoos released last month and the film received a lukewarm response at the box office which led to it not earning profits.
And Ranbir’s father, Rishi Kapoor, was not at all happy with failure of the film and blamed director Anurag Basu for the same.
Rishi Kapoor slammed Mr Basu and called him an “irresponsible” in an interview with mid-day and blamed him for the film’s several delays. Jagga Jasoos, also starring Ranbir’s rumoured ex Katrina Kaif, was filmed for over a period of three years. “He (Anurag) is 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,”[ecp code=”4″]
So when Ranbir, who stepped out to launch the trailer of Sanjay Dutt’s upcoming film, Bhoomi was asked about this father’s comments, he said, “My father is a very emotional man. Whatever he said was to protect me in some way. I don’t necessarily agree with what he said.”
Ranbir added that the box-office failure notwithstanding, he does not consider Jagga Jasoos, which was his maiden production, a flop. “Jagga Jasoos is something that we worked for three and a half years. We all were aware of what we were doing. Sometimes you succeed sometimes you fail. But I don’t look at it as a failure, I look at it as a learning. It gave me a lot. The experience of working with Anurag Basu and everyone was very good. I can’t answer for somebody else but I don’t necessarily agree with everything.”
Jagga Jasoos opened to good reviews in July but could only manage to make a shade under Rs. 50 crores.
On the work front, Ranbir Kapoor will next be seen in the Rajkumar Hirani-directed biopic on Sanjay Dutt.
