Even before Jagga Jasoos released, there were reports of the team planning a sequel. This was in event that the film became a huge hit like Baahubali, as the makers were hoping. In fact, director Anurag Basu has even kept an open ending in the film for Jagga Jasoos 2.
However, while the producers are speaking of the film “growing”, the distributors and exhibitors are groaning at the prospect of another loser at the box office. So, plans of doing a sequel to JJ have now been dropped. According to sources, this decision was taken even before the movie released.
“Anurag Basu had written the film as an ongoing series — the adventures of Jagga Jasoos — just like Satyajit Ray filmed the adventures of Feluda. But the audiences’ response is not encouraging enough. So, the sequel won’t happen,” says a source.
