Ranbir, Katrina ready to shoot for ‘Jagga Jasoos’
The alleged couple (alleged because they are yet to make it public) Ranbir Kapoor and Katrina Kaif now have the opportunity to spend time together even at work. The duo, last seen together on screen, in the film ‘Raajneeti’, will shortly begin shooting for the film ‘Jagga Jasoos’, directed by Anurag Basu. They will have a lot to shoot because the film is a musical that is scheduled to feature over 25 songs. It is believed that Katrina missed this year’s Cannes film festival because of this project.
The comedy based film is expected to be a laugh riot. Not only the lead man Ranbir has great comic timing and expression but another great comic actor Govinda will be seen in the film. Govinda is slated to play Ranbir’s father in the film who is clearly excited to work with the veteran star. During an interview Ranbir stated, "I am very excited about the film because we all somewhere have been influenced by Govinda as an actor and dancer. For me, he playing my step-father is really an exciting opportunity for me." Ranbir recently finished shooting for ‘Bombay Velvet’, a thriller directed by Anurag Kashyap. He had to lose weight quickly to start shooting for ‘Jagga Jasoos’ because he muscled up to play the role of a street fighter/ boxer in ‘Bombay Velvet’.
His co-star Katrina also has to work especially hard these days. She is already involved in the shooting of ‘Bang Bang’ with Hrithik Roshan. The film is a remake of the Hollywood blockbuster ‘Knight and Day’ that featured Tom Cruise and Cameron Diaz. The film is highly action packed and Katrina recently spent two weeks in Abu Dhabi to shoot intense actions scenes. Hrithik is also performing some of the stunts himself. Katrina will be shortly leaving for Prague for the next portion of shoot and amidst all this she will have to find time for ‘Jagga Jasoos’ as well.
The film ‘Jagga Jasoos’ is very special for Ranbir as he is not only acting in the film but is also co-producing it under the banner of his production house, Picture Shuru Productions. Interestingly, he will play an 18 year old for the film. Although 20 days of shooting has been done already, the director has decided to reshoot some portions featuring Ranbir and Katrina in order to achieve better results. Anurag wants to deliver another super performance with Ranbir after their 2012 super hit ‘Barfi’.
