Bollywood actor Ranbir Kapoor on Thursday reacted to his father Rishi Kapoor’s criticism of “Jagga Jasoos” director Anurag Basu, saying the veteran actor is “an emotional man”.
Ranbir, who co-produced “Jagga Jasoos”, however, stood by his team.
- In an interview, Rishi had slammed Basu for being “irresponsible” with the film, which was in the making for over three years.
- Ranbir commented on it during the trailer launch of Sanjay Dutt’s comeback film “Bhoomi” here on Thursday. Ranbir is playing the lead role in a biopic on Sanjay Dutt.
- Asked to comment on his father’s comment, Ranbir said here: “Well, my father is an emotional man and whatever he said was coming from there, and I do not necessarily agree with what my father said. But from the beginning, I and Basu dada (Anurag Basu) were aware of what we are doing.
- “Sometimes it works and sometimes it doesn’t, but I do not look at it as a failure. I look at it as a learning.

Producer Vidhu Vinod Chopra commenting on “Jagga Jasoos”, said: “I spent three hours to watch the film on a big screen and let me put it on record that some of the moments in the film are excellent. It is not a flop film. You know no one is flop-proof, we all are striving to do our best. Sometimes it falls in place, sometimes it doesn’t but as long as we are striving, it is okay”.
