Here’s how Pritam reacts on Rishi Kapoor’s statement against him

The box office failure of Anurag Basu’s ‘Jagga Jasoos’ has affected not just the actors, but even their parents. Take for instance, Ranbir Kapoor‘s actor-father, Rishi Kapoor. He is notorious for voicing his frank opinions on Twitter and recently he had blamed the failure of the movie on director-producer Anurag Basu and music composer Pritam.

So, at the song launch even of ‘Jab Harry Met Sejal’, music composer Pritam was asked to speak on the same. He said, “You can call me or meet me outside somewhere. This isn’t the right platform to discuss it.” It’s quite clear that he avoided answering the question. (Also Read: Govinda thanks Rishi Kapoor for taking his side in ‘Jagga Jasoos’ incident)

For those unknown, Rishi Kapoor had lashed out against the filmmaker and music composer for their disorganised ways of handling the movie. He had said, “Honestly, Neetu and I saw the film on Thursday, only a day ahead of the release. Till Wednesday, Anurag Basu was still mixing the film. Can you imagine that? Pritam [composer] probably delivered the music only a week before. What can you say? Basu doesn’t take an opinion from anybody. Today’s filmmakers are doing this with everybody. They don’t show their films before release to take opinions and treat it as though they’re making a nuclear bomb. I didn’t hate or love the film. I only felt it needed to be abridged by 20 minutes. But who is going to give that opinion to them? I totally agree with Ekta Kapoor when she threw him out from her film. He had problems with Rakesh Roshan while working on Kites(2010). He’s such an irresponsible director that he doesn’t complete the film. It was supposed to release three times in the past two years, but it kept getting delayed.”

Anurag, on his side, apologised for the failure of his movie on his social media page, but clearly, Pritam is in no mood to discuss on the subject.
