Ranbir Kapoor Defends Dad Rishi and ‘Jagga Jasoos’ With Grace

Bollywood actor Ranbir Kapoor reacted to his father Rishi Kapoor's criticism of Jagga Jasoos director Anurag Basu on Thursday, saying that the veteran actor is "an emotional man". Ranbir, who co-produced the fantasy musical however, stood by his team.

Ranbir Kapoor, ActorWell, 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.

In an interview with a tabloid, Rishi had slammed Basu for being "irresponsible" with Jagga Jasoos, which had been in the making for over three years. Ranbir made the comment during the trailer launch of Sanjay Dutt’s comeback film Bhoomi on thursday.

Producer Vidhu Vinod Chopra also commented on the Jagga Jasoos controversy.

Vidhu Vinod Chopra, FilmmakerI 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.
