Govinda is not happy with the makers of Jagga Jasoos.

A couple of days ago, Govinda was really angry with the makers of Jagga Jasoos for chopping off his scenes from the film. Now, Ranbir Kapoor, one of the producers of the film, has responded to it. He is very apologetic in his clarification and says that it’s ‘irresponsible’ but necessary for the sake of his film.

In a conversation with DNA, Ranbir said, “Unfortunately, the entire track has been chopped off; it is our fault, Basu and mine. We had started this film prematurely, without a complete script. The character had completely changed, and the film was taking so long.”

He further said, “It is very irresponsible, and very unfair to cast a great legend like Govinda and not do justice to his role. We are apologetic, but it is the best thing for the film so we had to cut that track out.”

Directed by Anurag Basu, Jagga Jasoos also features Katrina Kaif in an important role.

Jagga Jasoos will hit the screens on July 14, 2017.
