‘Jagga Jasoos’ promotions have already started and we have already been privy to a bunch of priceless statements from Ranbir Kapoor. This promotion will show you the actual talent of its stars, Katrina Kaif and Ranbir Kapoor. This whole promotion run will be an eye-opener for all those, who thought Katty can’t act. As for Ranbir, it seems that he has been taking a bit too much of those things he usually take to calm him down. All these rumours of the two of them not promoting the film together seemed too far-fetched now. Or maybe RK had to beg KK since it’s his home production and all eyes are on them. Ranbir even clarified these rumours with this statement:
I think we all have worked very hard in this film. We have given our time, our effort, our heart to it. This is my film, as much Katrina’s and as much dada’s (Anurag Basu). We would like to present it in the best way possible so that it reaches the audience, and they like the promo and the content of the film. It’s not like Katrina and I will do something or we’ll go to a reality show and people will go to the cinema hall due to that. Of course we’ll do all of that, but we’ll make sure that everybody is aware that the film is releasing on July 14. Just like every film, this film also has a plan. We are going to do some activities this month and then July 1 onwards, we’ll really get into the promotions.
The film’s team launched the promo of its first song online. It sort of meant that its stars don’t want to promote the film together. Maybe they were taking some time to convince Katrina to be out there and promote the film with Ranbir. After all, it’s Katrina that pretty much believes how promotion can help a film at the box office. At the second song launch of their film, they were both in attendance in front of the media on stage. Naturally, they became prepared because they know what kinds of questions to expect from journalists. You can actually see how good of an actress Katrina is because she didn’t snapped and just sat there listening to Ranbir slyly praising her. On his part, Ranbir appeared on edge and hyper like he took some sort of muscle relaxer to get through all this. Why in the world will he mention that peeing on the road is too much fun? Did he want to get more fans or lose some?
Has Ranbir not learnt anything in all these years he has been in Bollywood? He should know when to stop it and zip it. Does he think the people are fools to take him seriously? He’s supposed to be a good actor, so at least he can behave like one or maybe, pretend to behave like one (like Aamir Khan does). Speaking of pretending, he is good at faking it during promotions. During any promotions of his films, he makes his co-star appear like she’s the best actress in the world and how much he’s close to her and all that. Then after the movie is released, he pretends he doesn’t know her that well. It’s the same cycle every time and if you know RK well, you know this is exactly what happens. He’s doing the same thing to Katrina now and she knows it. She’s smart enough to know that she has to play along until the film releases. After all, the dude literally ran out of their home while Kat was out of town. This is just the beginning of their promotion schedule, we are sure there will be more priceless comments to come.
Ranbir Kapoor‘s Interview on Jagga Jasoos
Ranbir on Jagga Jasoos
Three years ago when Anurag dada narrated the script to me, it touched my heart and we decided to jointly produce it. None of us knew that the film would consume so much time. I think it’s everyone’s mistake and we are to be blamed for the delay. Anurag dada was deeply immersed in this film and dedicated his three years solely to it, while we were busy shooting for our other projects. He’s the only one who has stood by this film.
Ranbir on his dancing skills
Dance is an essential element in Bollywood films. However, I think I’m not as skilled dancer as Katrina, she’s an amazing dancer. (Katrina interrupts, “Undoubtedly, that I am.)
Ranbir on his box office run
Last few years weren’t that good at the box office, but even then I’ve got the opportunity to work with Raju sir, Anurag Basu and Ayan Mukerji. I feel very fortunate and blessed. They are putting their vision in a film and gifting it to me. So, I really hope that I can repay that with my talent
Ranbir on copycat king, Anurag Basu
I don’t think he (Anurag Basu) can work with any other actor as I understand his process. I don’t want him to work with another actor because he is the finest director of our country he has great knowledge about cinema, performance,music.
Ranbir on being a producer for the first time
I have realised it’s not my cup of tea. This [Jagga Jasoos] is my first and last film as a producer. I am happy being an actor. I am lazy and don’t think I am cut out to be a filmmaker. I am glad, though, that I have been credited as producer for ‘Jagga Jasoos’.
Ranbir on why Jagga Jasoos took this long to shoot
None of us knew that the film would take so much time. I think it’s everyone’s mistake and we are all to be blamed for the delay. When dada (director Anurag Basu) and I got into a discussion almost three years ago, we realised that we don’t have specific films in India for children. So, we wanted to make one that families would enjoy. It’s a visual treat with thrilling elements; it’s a cute father-son story.
I think Katrina is a machine of superhit films. In the future, when I will produce a film, I would like to make a film only for her.
Not many people know that I am the reason behind her amazing dance moves in songs like Sheila Ki Jawani,’ Chikni Chameli,’ Masha Allah.’ I would make her rehearse and get the desired expressions and variations for the song. There is no gratefulness about this that you have shown (indicating towards Katrina)
Katrina keeps saying ‘I have given you two superhits Ajab Prem Ki Ghazab Kahani and Raajneeti. Whatever you are today, it’s because of me.’ I promised that I would make a superhit for her. It was then that I decided that whenever I turn a producer, I’ll be grateful to her and give back all that she has given to me by casting her in my film. I told her I’d make a super hit film for you. Anurag dada and I have made this film only for you. This is going to be Katrina Kaif‘s best performance. I don’t think there has been a greater star than Katrina in this film industry.
Katrina Kaif‘s Updated Looks
Mumbai Mirror devoted a small section in their gossip column to comment about Kat’s updated looks.
EXPECTEDLY, the Ranbir Kapoor–Katrina Kaif joint presser made much noise thanks to Kaif’s former beau showering praise on her for the sake of their upcoming film. But that wasn’t the only ‘faux’ visible to the gazers. Kaif’s new face had everyone in giggles. It seems that the lady’s had some work done, fillers probably, and was looking chubbier that usual. While most of the brickbats have been through anonymous whispers, model Diandra Soares was quick to call a spade when she saw one. Along with a picture of Katrina’s from the event, she shared: “Dear women, be proud of your age, be proud of your life experiences, be proud of your lines…let’s mature naturally…everybody is fighting a very natural process n messing with nature looking so damn strange in the process. Also, it’s not a hate post for Kat… I know her (n would even say this to her face) it’s just that I happened to see this pic n her interview n it got me thinking”. Hmm.
What’s going on with Ranbir Kapoor‘s head/hair?
Is that a wig he has on? If it is, then it’s a bad one. You would think that with all the money he has, he could have gotten better implants. Just like his favourite, Salman Khan got when he got bald. Also, he’s supposed to be putting on weight to play Sanjay Dutt, but all the weight seems to be going to his face because it got larger.
What happened when Salman Khan walked in a Ranbir-Katrina interview?
According to SpotBoye, here’s what happened when Salman decided to remind Ranbir that he exist:
Now, here’s another scoop from the evening. It so happened that Ranbir Kapoor and Katrina were giving interviews in Studio No.8 . Salman, on the other hand, was scheduled to promote Tubelight in Studio No. 4. Salman’s manager informed the superstar about the itinerary as soon as he arrived at the venue at 5.30 pm.
So far so good.
However, in a matter of minutes, Salman landed up at Studio No. 8 and barged in as Ranbir and Katrina were conversing with a journalist.
The two were understandably shocked to see Salman there and while, Katrina acknowledged him and continued to answer questions, but Ranbir looked away.
Salman, sporting a smirk, turned around and yelled at his guards saying, “Main toh bol hi raha tha yahaan nahin hain mere interviews,” and walked out.
Was this one of Salman’s ways of embarrassing Ranbir and Katrina, considering he has visited Mehboob Studios umpteen times and it’s unlikely that he confused two studios? Or was it a genuine mistake?
Your guess is as good as ours.
After completing the interviews, while Ranbir rushed to his car and left the venue, Katrina made sure she hung around and chatted with Salman. In fact, after dropping Katrina to her ride, the superstar hailed a rickshaw with Ramesh Taurani in tow and went home.
