MID-DAY (August 11, 2017)
Whatever Rishi Kapoor said was just to protect him, feels Ranbir Kapoor in regard to his father’s criticism on his recent release, Jagga Jasoos. “My father is an emotional man. I think he was only protecting me,” Ranbir said at the trailer launch of Sanjay Dutt’s comeback film Bhoomi yesterday, when asked what he thinks of his father’s take on his recently released Anurag Basu-directorial.
He added, “I don’t necessarily agree with what he said. We worked on Jagga Jasoos for three years and we knew what we were doing and how it was being made. Sometimes you succeed, sometimes you fail. I don’t look at it as failure. I look at it as a learning experience. I cannot answer for somebody else, but I don’t necessarily agree with anybody else.”
In an interview with mid day, the 64-year-old had slammed Basu for being irresponsible with the film. Soon after the release of Jagga Jasoos, that didn’t fare well at the box office, the veteran actor had said that even after three years of making, the film was incomplete and that Basu was cutting it even two days before the release.
