Rishi Kapoor has lashed out at Anurag Basu and other modern day directors after the failure of Jagga Jasoos. He had some strong words for the modern day directors. Here is what he has to say about the modern day directors:
“They don’t show their films before release to take opinions, and treat it as though they’re making a nuclear bomb. I didn’t hate or love the film. I only felt it needed to be abridged by 20 minutes. But who is going to give that opinion to them? I totally agree with Ekta Kapoor when she threw him out from her film. He had problems with Rakesh Roshan while working on Kites(2010). He’s such an irresponsible director that he doesn’t complete the film. It was supposed to release three times in the past two years, but it kept getting delayed.”
Rishi Kapoor went on saying that Ranbir’s film do well sometimes and sometimes they do not but as he was the producer of the film this time so he is set to make losses.
He went on to say about the director of the movie:
” Who the hell are you (Basu) to do all this? It is ridiculous that a producer hadn’t seen his product a day ahead of the film’s release. You may be the biggest director in the world but nobody would like to work with you because you are irresponsible. There is somebody else’s money involved in this. I trusted you (Basu), and this is what you give us? Ranbir hasn’t held back on spending money on it.”You (Anurag Basu) even threw Govinda out of the film. If you don’t want Govinda to work in your film, why did you ask him in the first place? Iss sab mein Ranbir ka naam toh kharaab hoga, aur kya? Mera kharaab hoga! (With these developments, it’s Ranbir and my name that’s gathered negative limelight).”
There is no reaction from the filmmaker Anurag Basu on this, let’s see what he says, we will update on this.
