Ranbir, Katrina refuse to shoot promotional song for ‘Jagga Jasoos’


Anurag Basu’s much-delayed directorial ‘Jagga Jasoos’ starring ex-lovers Ranbir Kapoor and Katrina Kaif is finally ready to release on July 14. The lead pair started shooting for the musical adventure film when they were together, but the duo broke-up midway. But being staunch professionals, they set aside their personal differences and came together to complete the film’s shooting.

However, the makers of ‘Jagga Jasoo’ had wanted to shoot a promotional song for the movie ahead of its release, but it is not happening anymore. Ranbir and Katrina turned down the request when approached for shooting the song, as they were extremely busy with their respective projects, and has no time for it.

While Katrina is shooting for ‘Tiger Zinda Hai’ opposite former lover-turned-good friend Salman Khan, Ranbir is shooting for Rajkumar Hirani-directed biopic on Sanjay Dutt in which he essays the ‘Khalnayak’ actor’s role. He has also undergone a make-over for his screen-character.

"It was a last-minute decision to shoot for the number, but now it is practically impossible. Besides the actors' packed diary, the makers are concerned that their physique has altered since they shot for the film. Ranbir Kapoor has bulked up to look like Dutt and Katrina Kaif has acquired an athletic figure for ‘Tiger Zinda Hai’," a report in Mid-day quoted a source as saying.

However, the ex-lovers will come together to promote the film. "Katrina has worked very hard on the film. The film is hers as much as it is mine. We will promote it really well, and release it well too. When we make a film, we make it with lots of love and sincerity. We would like to put it across in the best way possible," Ranbir recently said in an interview.
