Producer Siddharth Roy Kapur, whose next film will feature Ranbir Kapoor and Katrina Kaif, believes that the off-screen chemistry between Ranbir and Katrina will not help in garnering eyeballs. "The story helps sell a film better. It is Anurag (director Anurag Basu) and Ranbir coming together after Barfi so there is lot of excitement around the film and we too are excited about it," he said.

Ranbir and Katrina, who are dating each other, have become one of the most loved jodis of the Hindi filmdom. The two actors have worked together in Ajab Prem Ki Ghazab Kahani and Rajneeti. The 32-year-old actor and Katrina are currently shooting for

Jagga Jasoos

which is the first production of Ranbir.

Meanwhile, Siddharth denied reports that all is not well between Katrina and Anurag on the sets of Jagga Jasoos. "It is hilarious as I was on the sets a day before this news came out. We all -- Anurag,

Ranbir and Katrina

were having great time and next day news that there is problem between them. It is good that there is buzz around the film as people are talking about the film so there is interest about the film."

Jagga Jasoos, a comedy drama, narrates the story of a teenage detective in search of his missing father and it is scheduled for release in next June.
