Ranbir Kapoor, Katrina Kaif’s ‘Jagga Jasoos’ gets delayed again?


The already delayed film ‘Jagga Jasoos’ starring ex-flames Ranbir Kapoor and Katrina Kaif was set to hit screens on April 7, but appears that its release will be pushed further. Buzz is rife in trade circles that the Anurag Basu directorial may not release as per schedule, owing to a string of big films releasing in April.

‘Jagga Jasoos’ was supposed to clash with Ram Gopal Varmar’s ‘Sarkar 3’ starring Amitabh Bachchan on on April 7, but apparently, it’s not happening anymore. Vidya Balan starrer period film ‘Begum Jaan’ will release the following week on April 14, which will be followed by Sonakshi Sinha’s ‘Noor’ on April 21. Thereafter, on April 28, the desperately awaited ‘Baahubali: The Conclusion’ will hit screens.

Meanwhile, Vidya’s ‘Begum Jaan’ too had recently announced its new release date on April 14 shifting from March 17. But the film’s co-producer Milind Dabke isn’t worried and feels that there is nothing to fear.

“We have heard that ‘Jagga Jasoos’ has got delayed and only ‘Sarkar 3’ is coming on April 7. A week is good enough to catch up. We don’t require two-three weeks as we are not a big film,” he was quoted as saying.

As for ‘Jagga Jasoos’, the film is Ranbir and Katrina’s first film post their break-up. The ex-couple had started work on the film and split before the film’s shooting completed. The romantic comedy is a highly anticipated one and the lead pair’s personal equation has made it all the more interesting.

The film’s trailer released in December last year and it was visually appealing – as if it were a fantasy land. Ranbir plays a young detective who is on the look-out for his father, while Katrina helps him in his journey and the duo embark on an adventure-filled hunt.

An official announcement of the movie’s delayed and the new release date is awaited.
