Ranbir Kapoor – Katrina Kaif’s Jagga Jasoos will not release as scheduled on April 7, 2017 and the makers are now looking for a new release date.
There is a lot of ambiguity around the film as different people have different things to say about the film. A source reveals,
“Jagga Jasoos is heavy in terms of visual effects and Anurag Basu is expected to get done with the post production by February end. However, it took longer than expected and it will now get finished only by end of May. There are talks in the distribution department of Disney that the film will release in July.”
However, another source reveals that the shooting itself isn’t complete yet.
“Jagga Jasoos has around 26 to 27 songs as Ranbir Kapoor’s character converses via songs. Basu wants to reshoot a few sequences and wants Pritam to come up with new songs for the situation.
Around 10 to 15 days shoot is still left, however there is no clarity as to when will the film be shot as Ranbir Kapoor is already in his character of Sanjay Dutt whereas Katrina Kaif will get busy with Tiger Zinda Hai,” confirmed the source.
The source also said that the release date will now be announced only once the final copy is ready as the heads at Disney don’t want any further delay.
Jagga Jasoos went on floors in 2013 and the film was initially slated to release in 2014. However, it has been delayed time and again for several reasons.
