Jagga Jasoos has been much-delayed and has been a topic of discussion for a while, but producer Sidharth Roy Kapoor is very happy with the way Jagga Jasoos is progressing.
Ranbir Kapoor and Katrina Kaif starrer Jagga Jasoos was originally scheduled to release in October-November 2014, but due to conflicting commitments in the part of the leads (owing to their break-up), the movie’s release date has now been pushed to August 2016. But the producer SRK seems unperturbed by this. Infat, Sidharth Roy Kapoor is very happy with the way Jagga Jasoos is progressing.
During a press conference for ‘The Jungle Book’ , Sidharth Roy Kapoor, the Managing Director of Disney UTV, was asked to speak about his much delayed film Jagga Jasoos. This is what his reaction was-
“Jagga Jasoos is progessing pretty well and we will soon shoot for the film outside India. In my experience, when there a lot that happens in the course of making a film, that movie usually turns out to be really good because that shows the efforts gone into. Sometimes, the smoothest journey turn out to be a dud. I don’t think the process of making the film has anything to do with the way the movie will finally turn out. I am really happy with whatever i have seen so far and the rough footages are spectacular. I think Anurag Basu is someone who should be left alone with what he does the best.”
That’s the spirit SRK! Jagga Jasoos is now slated to release eyeing the August 2016 release slot.
He was also asked about his opinion on whether after a few years, Hollywood Films will perform better than Bollywood films in India. To this he said-
“No, I don’t think Hollywood will ever take over Bollywood. We as Indians, love our movies, actors and we are people who enjoy our stars, our story and our grammar of film making. A lot of Hollywood films are doing well in India, because our cinema is not able to come up with such films. We are not able to come up with a good superhero film or a disaster film or even a film like Jungle Book because the scale is so spectacular, but I hope someday we will be able to make such films.”
The Jungle Book releases on 8 April 2016.
