Both Rishi Kapoor and his son Ranbir have slammed Anurag Basu for delaying Jagga Jasoos.

Rishi Kapoor recently slammed filmmaker Anurag Basu for delaying his son Ranbir Kapoor’s Jagga Jasoos. However, he is not the only one blaming the director. Ranbir, in an interview with AIB, also slammed the filmmaker for dragging the movie for three years.

Ranbir Kapoor starred opposite Katrina Kaif in Jagga Jasoos.

Speaking on the AIB podcast released online last week, Ranbir described Anurag’s style of working and said, “There is no AD system, no script, no schedule. He will cancel a 40-day shoot on the third day. Like when Barfi started, I was supposed to be intense and serious. He then wanted to make it fun and then all the Chaplin stuff came.”

“Barfi was successful, so we forgive that process (of delaying). If Jagga Jasoos doesn’t work, I don’t think this process can be forgiven because it is irresponsible. For other people’s money, time and other things,” he added.

In an interview to Mid Day, Rishi Kapoor had said, “You may be the biggest director in the world, but nobody would like to work with you because you are irresponsible. There is somebody else’s money involved in this. I trusted you, and this is what you give us? Ranbir hasn’t held back on spending money on it. You even threw Govinda out of the film. If you don’t want Govinda to work in your film, why did you ask him in the first place?”

Jagga Jasoos released on 14 July. It has so far made Rs 45 crore and its budget is about Rs 110 crore. According to a Forbes report, the film recorded one of the worst Friday-to-Friday drops of all time, plummeting 85% on its second Friday.
