He is such an irresponsible director, says Rishi Kapoor to Anurag Basu

Jagga Jasoos had been in the making for a while. It took the film a little more than three whole years to finish the filming of the same. While Ranbir Kapoor hasn’t spoken about the delay in degressive terms, his father Rishi Kapoor has a different opinion altogether.

“He (Anurag) is 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,” he said.

He added, “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 probably delivered the music only a week before.”

Rishi Kapoor also said that Basu isn’t the only one who does this. . “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.”

Speaking about entirely removing Govinda from the film, he said “Ranbir hasn’t held back on spending money on it. You even threw Govinda out of the film. If you don’t want Govinda to work in your film, why did you ask him in the first place? Iss sab mein Ranbir ka naam toh kharaab hoga, aur kya? Mera kharaab hoga.”

Well, that’s what an angry father sounds like…
