A new film, Jagga Jasoos, will bring the 1990s popular star, Govinda, and current heartthrob, Ranbir Kapoor, together on screen for the first time. The two will play father and son in the detective drama.

“I am very excited about the film because we all have been influenced by Govinda as an actor and dancer. For me, him playing my step-father is really an exciting opportunity,” says Ranbir.

Jagga Jasoos also marks Ranbir’s foray into production. Ask him whether he found the process challenging and he says, “I don’t have any pressure as a producer. I am working with Anurag Basu, and we have certain ideology about films. We are here to make a good and entertaining film,” says the actor whose last film, Besharam, fell flat at the box office.

This will be Ranbir’s second film with Basu post the success of Barfi! (2012). The film will also see Katrina Kaif in a lead role. The last time they were seen together on screen was in Ajab Prem Ki Ghazab Kahani (2009).
