It was after the success of “Barfi!” that director Anurag Basu had uncovered that he wants to make a biopic on Kishore Kumar. While the other details were not clear, there were speculations that Ranbir was good to go to play Kishore Kumar in the film. Anurag was still working on the script when the shooting started for the spy-adventure flick ‘Jagga Jasoos’.
However, it now appears that this collaboration between the two won’t not occur! In a recent interaction, Anurag uncovered that he may sign another performing artist if Ranbir is busy. Anurag stated, “I don’t know with whom I will make the film and when exactly. After Sanjay Dutt biopic, Ranbir will be busy with another film, ‘Dragon’. I don’t want to sit tight for a really long time for my film, so if Ranbir can’t give dates this year, I will go with another person.”
Discussing his much-delayed film, ‘Jagga Jasoos’, which will release mid-July, Anurag stated, “We will begin promotions two-three weeks before the release. The trailer will be out by May-end. There are more than 25 tunes in the film. It’s a musical and we need to pass on that to the audience.”
Featuring ex-flames Katrina Kaif and Ranbir Kapoor in the lead, ‘Jagga Jasoos’ is a spy-adventure melodic about a boy in search of his missing father.
