After the failure of Jagga Jasoos at the box-office, the film’s lead actor Ranbir Kapoor‘s father Rishi Kapoor had gone on a rant against filmmaker Anurag Basu. The veteran star had even dissed music director Pritam for his delayed delivery of the film’s music. At the trailer launch of the Sanjay Dutt-starrer Bhoomi, RK Jr. was asked about his father’s statements. He asserted that he doesn’t agree with his dad’s remarks. Ranbir said:
My father is a very emotional man. I think whatever he said was to protect me, from where he was coming. I don’t necessarily agree with what he did or what he said. Like I said, Jagga Jasoos is something that we’ve worked on for three and a half years. We all were aware of what we were doing and what was being made. Sometimes you succeed sometimes you fail. I don’t look at it (Jagga Jasoos) as a failure, I look at it as a learning. I think it has given me a lot, the experience of working with Anurag Basu and everyone on the film. So yes, I can’t answer for someone else, but I don’t necessarily agree with it.
Ranbir was at the event accompanying Dutt as he will be playing the later in an upcoming biopic and hence, is spending a lot of time shadowing the actor.
