Jagga Jasoos was one among the most important movie in Ranbir Kapoor’s career which happened to fail drastically at the box office. Ranbir Kapoor may have kept quiet on the failure of Jagga Jasoos but his father, Rishi Kapoor lashed out at Anurag Basu for the failure of the movie. Rishi Kapoor watched a movie a day before its release and became one among the members to permanently hate Anurag Basu’s movie.
Calling out Anurag Basu as an irresponsible director, Rishi Kapoor said that “I didn’t hate or love the film, I only felt it needed to be abridged by 20 minutes. But who is going to give that opinion to them? I totally agree with Ekta Kapoor when she threw him out of her film. He had problems with Rakesh Roshan while working on Kites. He’s 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 released.”
Jagga Jasoos which was expected to make Ranbir Kapoor’s career became a huge flop for the actor. Earning just 9.50 crore in 9 days, Jagga Jasoos failed to create magic at the box office.
Rishi Kapoor further says that he feels like his son, Ranbir Kapoor has wasted his time and reputation by working with Anurag Basu. Getting furious on the director, Rishi Kapoor further said that “Ranbir’s films do well, sometimes they don’t. But here, Ranbir is the producer too, and his neck is in the noose. Who the hell are you(Basu) to do all this? It is ridiculous that a producer hadn’t seen his product a day ahead of the film’s release. There’s someody else’s money involved in this…He even threw Govinda out of the film.Iss Sab mein Ranbir ka naam kharaab hoga aur kya? Mera naam kharaab hoga.”
Jagga Jasoos also failed to earn well at the box office because it did not release in a few countries. The movie could not release in Singapore because it was not delivered on time. “It did not release in Singapore because you have to deliver it in five days in advance. It did not release in the Gulf on Thursday because it was only delivered to them on Thursday. This is unreasonable and irresponsible.” further said Rishi Kapoor.
After looking at the current situation, we wonder if Ranbir Kapoor’s dad, Rishi Kapoor will ever allow him to work with Anurag Basu again. On the work front, Ranbir Kapoor will be next seen in Sanjay Dutt’s biopic.
