KATRINA KAIF CLEARS THE AIR ON RANBIR’S WORKING MANNERISM, JAGGA JASOOS
The promotions of Ranbir Kapoor and Katrina Kaif’s film Jagga Jasoos are on in full swing. The camaraderie between Ranbir and Katrina is evident, but we wonder if it is merely an eyewash. Media reports stated that the delay in the film completions and promotions was due to the differences between the co-stars.
Irrespective-stars rumor mills, Ranbir and Katrina, are professional to the core. In a recently held PR event where Director Anurag Basu and Ranbir Kapoor were in attendance, Katrina walked in late. When quizzed o
n Ranbir’s work ethics, she had this to say.
“I have worked with Ranbir in Ajab Prem Ki Gazab Kahani and Rajneeti. I can assure you that Ranbit is a very professional actor. I realized this from the first day while I started shooting my film, Ajab Prem Ki Gazab Kahani
She added further, “We are professionally very competitive. At the same time, we are very hardworking as well. This professional competition does enable us to give our best,” she concludes
With Anurag Basu Having a reputation for “lifting scenes”, his upcoming film Jagga Jasoos is under scrutiny.
So here is the thing. One blogger has accused Anurag Basu’s forthcoming Jagga Jasoos of seeming inspired by the Tintin comics. Anurag, of course, completely denies the allegation. Just as he had denied lifting scenes from Charlie Chaplin film in his previous film Barfi.
Displaying no pre-release jitters – he is busy indulging in his favorite stress-busting activity – cooking. He says, “Let the film release, Doodh ka doodh, paani ka paani ho jayega.”
However, the film’s producers are taking no chances. They have set into motion an in depth examination of the film’s content looking for shreds of inspiration from an extraneous source.
Let’s not forget, the same studio had burnt its fingers with the director’s previous film Barfi, which had scenes lifted directly from Charlie Chaplin films.
Says a source, “Anurag does have a reputation for lifting scenes. One of his early films Saay was lited from a Hollywood film Dragonfly. Anurag’s Tumsa Nahin Dekha was inspired by Arthur. With copyright laws being what they are, Disney is taking no chances. The entire Tintin comparison is being explored to avoid litigation after release.”
