Recently, there was a furore on the internet when senior actor Govinda took to Twitter and expressed his displeasure about director Anurag Basu and actor-producer Ranbir Kapoor for chopping off his scenes from ‘Jagga Jasoos’. “I did my job as an actor and if the director is not happy it’s completely his call. There were various negative stories and negative articles only for Govinda and that’s how the film was remembered for three years. I was unwell and on drips but still, I travelled to South Africa and did my shoot. I was told they will narrate the film in South Africa and I didn’t even charge my signing amount, made no contracts. I gave full respect to Kapoor family. I did the film because he is my senior’s son. I was told I will get the script,” he wrote.
So today, when Ranbir was asked about the same, he was apologetic for it and stated that deleting his scenes was in the interest of the film. He said, “Unfortunately the entire track has been chopped off; it is our fault, Basu and mine. We had started this film very prematurely, without a complete script. The character had completely changed, and the film was taking so long. It is very irresponsible, and very unfair to cast a great legend like Govinda and not give justice to his role. It is very unfortunate the way things panned out. I feel truly apologetic about it, but it is for the best for the film that we had to cut that track out.” (Also Read: Katrina Kaif’s words on working with Ranbir Kapoor post breakup are truly emotional)
