Ranbir Kapoor and Imtiaz Ali to REUNITE again! Read EXCLUSIVE details here


If you thought that Imtiaz Ali is lying low after the debacle of Jab Harry Met Sejal, then we have some news for you. The filmmaker’s last outing with Shah Rukh Khan and Anushka Sharma might have tanked at the box office, but Imtiaz already has his next script ready. From what we hear this movie will feature Ali’s favourite hero Ranbir Kapoor in the lead role. Apparently Imtiaz has already approached Ranbir for his next project and RK Jr has even given his nod for this film. With Ranbir green lighting the movie, we’re sure that fans of the filmmaker and actor will be super thrilled. Because together Imtiaz and Ranbir are a fab combo. A source close to the actor revealed, “Ranbir will be a part of Imtiaz’s next. That’s not all the actor will go through massive transformation for this film. Imtiaz plans to show different stages of the character’s life.” Well, that kind of rings a bell, doesn’t it? Ranbir’s grandfather Late actor Raj Kapoor’s Mera Naam Joker showed the different stages of the character’s life. This film also featured Ranbir’s daddy dearest Rishi Kapoor as the young Raj Kapoor.

Ranbir is currently filming for Rajkumar Hirani’s Sanjay Dutt biopic titled Dutt. After that we will see the talented hero bulk up for his first film Dragon opposite Alia Bhatt, which is a superhero flick directed by Ayan Mukerji and produced by Karan Johar’s Dharma Productions. While Ranbir’s films haven’t had a great run at the theatres all eyes are now on the Dutt biopic. Unfortunately, for RK Jr despite his movie Ae Dil Hai Mushkil having done decent business, his much delayed and awaited and debut production venture Jagga Jasoos bombed at the box office despite getting decent reviews from critics. In fact, while Ranbir shares a great rapport with Imtiaz Ali, his films with the latter, Rockstarand Tamasha are not exactly his career bests. Having said that it would be interesting to see Ranbir and Imtiaz reunite for a film. And yes, we already have a pick to play Ranbir‘s baby version…. sister Kareena Kapoor Khan’s baby Taimur Ali Khan, what say?

Pritam Responds To Rishi Kapoor’s Accusations Of Jagga Jasoos Being Delayed


Not too long ago, Rishi Kapoor lashed out at filmmaker Anurag Basu for the delay in making the Jagga Jasoos. Reportedly, Anurag didn’t work with a script, and they weren’t shown the film before the release either. He was upset that all of Ranbir Kapoor‘s hard work and money went to waste given that Ranbir co-produced this film. He also alleged that Basu was still mixing the audio for the film on Wednesday as Pritam delivered the music only one week before the release.

While Anurag has chosen to not comment on the matter, Pritam spoke with PTI about it.

I have spent enough time in the industry to not believe any interview verbatim. Unless I get a personal message, I don’t believe in anything. Rishi Ji is somebody I respect a lot, he is a senior, I’ve grown up watching his films. On top of it, he is Ranbir’s dad. I am in love with Ranbir for his talent and the person he is.”

He also added that Jagga Jasoos was a difficult film to work on.

It was a complicated project and that’s why it took time. It’s not easy to take up a subject like that and live with it for over four years. Anurag is more passionate than I am. All of us did multiple projects during that time but he didn’t do anything else. There was nothing more good, challenging or more fun than Jagga Jasoos. I am really proud of the film. This one is for posterity and I think it will survive time. Anurag is a genius. I’ve worked with so many filmmakers, and he is one of the best we have. He is not only the master in direction and screenplay but also good in all the other aspects of filmmaking.”

What are your thoughts? Have you seen the film yet?

Jagga Jasoos box office collection day 2: Ranbir Kapoor and Katrina Kaif’s film sees an upward trend, rakes in Rs 20.10 crore

After a rather disappointing start on day one, Ranbir Kapoor and Katrina Kaif‘s Jagga Jasoos saw an upward trend on day 2 at the domestic box office. The movie not only saw an increase in occupancy, but also collections as it raked in Rs 11.53 crore on Saturday. This took the overall box office tally to Rs 20.10 crore after just two days. Talking about the detailed collections, trade analyst Taran Adarsh tweeted, “#JaggaJasoos Fri Rs 8.57 crore, Sat Rs 11.53 crore. Total: Rs 20.10 crore. India biz.”

We always expected Jagga Jasoos to see a growth on Saturday and that’s what happened. The movie was one of the most exciting films of the year and had a fantastic pre-release buzz. However, a working Friday and incessant rain meant that the film got a very average opening on day one. With a holiday on Saturday and a vast majority of kids excited to see the movie, the occupancy rose on day two. We expect the film to see witness an upward trend once again on day 3 (Sunday). Looking at the current trends, Jagga Jasoos can rake in anywhere between Rs 30-35 crore over the first weekend. Considering the start it got, this would be a really good figure.

However, with 1800 screens and two top stars, we expected Jagga Jasoos to perform better. However, the film has faltered in few key area. In fact, even though Ranbir has delivered one of his best performances yet, the story  and execution has let the film down. As our critic – Tushar P Joshi also mentioned in his review, “Jagga Jasoos is only worth a watch for Ranbir Kapoor’s class act. As a musical, the film falters on several notes.”

With a budget of Rs 100 crore, the makers are going to find it very difficult to make profits. However, you never know as anything can happen at the box office. So stay tuned ..  as we get you all the latest updates about Jagga Jasoos‘ box office collection right here…

SHOCKING! Ranbir Kapoor and Katrina Kaif’s Jagga Jasoos release delayed in UAE

After several delays, everyone was happy that Ranbir Kapoor and Katrina Kaif‘s Jagga Jasoos was finally releasing this week. However, looks like the film has hit another roadblock and might not hit theatres in the Middle East tomorrow! As every other Bollywood film, Jagga Jasoos was also going to release in UAE this Thursday (July 13), but the prints haven’t been delivered yet. Apparently, the actors were dubbing till Sunday (July 9) and the post production work on the Anurag Basu directorial is still pending. This has postponed its release in the Middle East, but even after this delay, sources confirm that the film will have an India release as planned.

As our source revealed to us exclusively, “Jagga Jasoos was supposed to release in UAE this Thursday, but the makers are yet to send out the prints. The exhibitors and distributors are confused and hence, they have not started the pre-booking in several regions. The music of the film also hasn’t met the mandatory deadline. Ranbir Kapoor also wants a few cuts in the film. The makers are even confused about the ending they want to give to the film. So Jagga Jasoos is not releasing in UAE tomorrow.”

From what we hear, Jagga Jasoos will release on Friday (July 14) in India, after the makers complete the post-production work and the end is decided. As the makers failed to meet the deadline in UAE, Anurag Basu’s directorial will mostly now release in the Middle East next Thursday (July 2o). A source close to the movie also revealed to us, “The makers had planned a global release, on July 14. However, they have missed the deadline of submitted the prints for the Gulf region and hence, the movie will mostly now release in Dubai, Abu Dhabi and other cities in the UAE next week.”

According to our sources, the makers are currently rushing to complete the final edit, make a final decision on the ending and send out the prints to all the exhibitors and distributors across India and the world. We are sure this was something that the makers of Jagga Jasoos did not want. At least after so much of controversy! With a lot more dope on this latest development, stay tuned to BollywoodLife as we get you all the latest updates on Jagga Jasoos and its release right here…

“I Need Her In My Life” – Ranbir Kapoor On Katrina Kaif

A lot has been said about Ranbir Kapoor and Katrina Kaif‘s relationship. I honestly don’t understand all this hype surrounding it because at the end of the day, it’s their personal matter and we’re never going to know what goes on behind closed doors. And we don’t need to either.

But a lot of rumours have been going around saying Ranbir and Katrina can’t stand each other and that things between the two have turned sour and ugly. Now, in a recent interview with India Today, Ranbir came forth and dismissed these rumours saying that Katrina will always be an important part of his life.

Here’s an excerpt.

I have been working with Katrina since my third film – Ajab Prem Ki Gajab Kahani. I really enjoy my creative partnership with her. The people that we are, we come with the intention to give the best to our work. I don’t think we have every carried personal baggage to the set and that’s the way it should be. Films are an expensive medium. It’s other people’s time and money, there are hundreds of people who are dependent on you. And my relationship with Katrina, whatever has been said or written by the media or the conjectures, it has always been a very positive one. I don’t think I can miss having her in my life. I need her in my life. She has such a positive influence on me, as a person and as an actor, and she’ll continue being that. That’s what it is. There is nothing like not talking to each other or not showing up. It was a lot of hard work not just by me but also by her. She is equally as important in the film as I am. She has stood by this film for three and a half years. She is like the producer of this film. I am very grateful for that partnership I have with her. I admire it.”

Aww! That’s sweet. :) And there you have it, straight from his mouth.

3 times Ranbir Kapoor snapped at Katrina Kaif while promoting Jagga Jasoos!

Like most of you are aware, Ranbir and Katrina are all set for their upcoming film Jagga Jasoos that is releasing in the middle of July. The ex lovers might have parted ways but are doing as much as they can to promote their films. Unfortunately it hasn’t been going very smooth, especially for Ranbir who snapped at Katrina several times during the interviews. Take a look at the three times we found him being really rude to her.

During an interview with Mid-Day, Katrina was asked to say a few lines in Bengali. Ranbir immediately interrupted the conversation and said that the actress doesn’t know Hindi, then how would she speak in Bengali? That of course was not it. Katrina started flapping a piece of paper on the mike which angered Ranbir even more as he told Katrina to put it down. “Katrina, put it down, its not funny” said the actor. Kat immediately laughs it off by saying “What are you! A school teacher?

Ranbir literally insulted Katrina during their Facebook Live when he was asked who are the five most important people in his life. Ranbir said “My mom, dad, my niece, Ayan and I could have said you but I will go ahead with two of my dogs.” He definitely tried to make Katrina feel low but she seemed least bothered.

Katrina was asked to describe her character in the film which the actress was doing cheerfully. Ranbir suddenly cut her in the middle and started talking about her role right there. When Katrina told him she was sitting right there and he was talking for her, the actor said that he is the producer of the film and has the right to speak about it. Also he felt that Katrina wasn’t describing her role all that well.

Katrina Kaif Has A Message For Everyone Analyzing Her Relationship With Ranbir Kapoor

Ranbir Kapoor and Katrina Kaif‘s break up in 2016 was a sad affair. They look damn cute together, and who wouldn’t like to see them together, right?! And together we shall see them on July 14, with the release of their film Jagga Jasoos. Currently, the two are busy promoting the film together and giving interviews. During one such conversation, Kat spoke about her relationship with Ranbir, which has always been a topic of scrutiny. She told DNA:

Our personal equation is between us, people can analyse it as much as they want to. But they are never going to get it because I have always been a private person. What you get to see when we come in front of the media is the equation which we’ve had in our work space from the beginning. We pull each other’s leg, it is all fun and masti. This is not negative, it’s not bitter, we are not pulling each other down. This is our way of having fun. If I say in an interview, how obnoxious he is, and who would want to work with him, it’s a joke. Ranbir and I have always had this tu-tu main-main relationship at work — it keeps up the energy, the fun.

Aww! Just some friendly leg pulling, you guys!

Sridevi also added that her younger daughter Khushi might follow her elder sister’s footsteps and want to pursue acting. She said, “She has already started modelling and it will end up with her saying, ‘Mujhe bhi acting karni hai.'”

“I want to work with Katrina Kaif in a LOT of films” – Ranbir Kapoor

ranbir-kapoor-katrina-kaif-jagga-jasoos Ranbir Kapoor and Katrina Kaif are busy promoting their eagerly anticipated film Jagga Jasoos and they’re being judged with a hyper active microscope. Everything that they say or do is being ‘decoded’ by the gossip hungry media. Ranbir Kapoor in a Bollywood Hungama exclusive with Faridoon Shahryar spoke at length about Katrina. Why he thinks Jagga Jasoos is her best work, how he’d love to work with her and how she egged him on to deliver better performances.

You said at the promo launch that this is the best performance of Katrina Kaif. Why do you say that?
You’ve never seen Katrina like this, it is such an endearing character, whenever she is on screen you will smile because of the things that are happening around her, the kind of energy she brought to the film. Like I found it very endearing, I have never seen her like this before so I am waiting for the audience’s reaction to her performance.

One thing you discovered about Katrina on Jagga Jasoos you never knew before?
You know I always believe that acting is about partnership. You know you are usually acting with somebody and I think the dynamics that Katrina and me have on set and the kind of movies that we have done, it’s like a game of ‘catch’, you know I throw her something, she catches and I throw something, she catches and I have realized that Katrina has always allowed me to shine. You know there are many actors that you work with who are probably very selfish; they want to like come out. But I think Katrina has that amazing, graceful quality where she wants you to shine and I am really grateful towards it. The other two films we did together Rajneeti and Ajab Prem Ki Gajab Kahani, it was a similar process, she wanted me to get better, she wanted me to come out as a good hero so that people love me. And I think that in Jagga Jasoos, she has supported me in the same way

One thing you love about Katrina Kaif?
There is not one thing that I love about her but if I had to pick one thing it would probably be her positivity, her positive attitude, you know towards her work. You know with this film also there are many times that you doubt, but she give you that energy that stand by your work.


There is all this speculation, whether you guys will work together or not, sometimes it is said in jest but jis tareeke se present kiya jaata hai it seems very serious. 
I said Yeh kya hai yaar? Will you not work with me? I think people just grabbed something from the Facebook chat that we had done. Like I said yaar, Katrina and my creative partnership is something I don’t want to lose out on. I want to work with her in a lot of films.

Ranbir Kapoor and Karan Johar to reunite on the big screen?

Ranbir Kapoor and Karan Johar

Ranbir Kapoor and Karan Johar

After the success of their last outing together, 2016 Diwali release Ae Dil Hai Mushkil, reportedly Karan Johar and Ranbir Kapoor are all set to unite again. According to a report by mid-day, they have been meeting a lot lately and are often joined by Ayan Mukerji as well. Ranbir Kapoor is all set to sign the film, however announcement of the same will be made when Karan will finalise the female lead. It is being reported that the film will go on floors next year after Ranbir wraps Sanjay Dutt biopic and Karan’s own production, Dragon, alongside Alia Bhatt, directed by Ayan Mukerji.

Interestingly, it was Karan Johar’s film that got Ranbir Kapoor his much needed success after a slate of flop films. In fact his last hit before Ae Dil Hai Mushkil too was Karan’s own Yeh Jawaani Hai Deewani.

We’ll know soon if the reports of them reuniting are any true or it’s just a baseless rumour like the one that was doing the rounds few months ago where Karan was keen on casting Shah Rukh Khan and Ranbir Kapoor for a film.

Well film or no film, Ranbir Kapoor knows how to stay in news. Be it his various looks that were leaked while he was shooting for Sanjay Dutt biopic or his latest stills from the TVC he just shot.

On work front, Ranbir will be next seen in Anurag Basu’s Jagga Jasoos. The movie has been in the making for quite some time now, and we hope it is able to find a release date soon. The detective comedy also features Katrina Kaif, but the buzz is that the two actors won’t be each other’s love interest in the movie. Also, Ranbir will be seen essaying the role of Sanjay Dutt, in his biopic. The movie is being directed by Rajkumar Hirani. Ranbir has already impressed many with his sheer dedication towards the role. From September 2017, Ranbir will begin shooting for BFF Ayan Mukherji’s Dragon, which also stars Alia Bhatt. He has pretty jam packed schedule for the rest of the year.
