Govinda bows out of Anurag Basu's ‘Jagga Jasoos’


Actor Govinda, who was among the lead cast of comedy drama ‘Jagga Jasoos’ has decided to quit the project.

The 51-year-old actor has already shot for a few portions of the movie starring Ranbir Kapoor and Katrina Kaif. Govinda was playing the role of Ranbir’s foster father.

Reportedly, the ‘Hero No 1’ had a fall-out with the film’s director Anurag Basu and therefore, he has walked out of the project. Apparently, the director was “unable to make peace with Govinda’s way of working,” reports cited.

The filmmakers are now looking for a suitable actor to replace Govinda. They have in mind actors Amitabh Bachchan and Anil Kapoor, but it is yet to be known who will wear Govinda’s shoes in the film.

‘Jagga Jasoos’ revolves around the story of a teenage detective who is searching for his missing father. The film is scheduled to release on June 3, next year.
