Ranbir Kapoor Apologises For Axing Govinda’s Cameo From Jagga Jasoos, Insists It’s Best For The Film
A couple of days ago, Govinda took to Twitter to slam the makers of Jagga Jasoos for chopping his cameo in Jagga Jasoos. In a series of tweets, he wrote, “I did my job as an actor and if the director is not happy it’s completely his call. There were various negative stories and negative articles only for Govinda and that’s how the film was remembered for three years. I was unwell and on drips but still, I travelled to South Africa and did my shoot. I was told they will narrate the film in South Africa and I dint even charge my signing amount, made no contracts. I gave full respect to Kapoor family. I did the film because he is my senior’s son. I was told I will get the script.”




At the new trailer launch of the film, director Anurag Basu clarified that Govinda is not a part of Jagga Jasoos and explained why. Following the incident, Govinda thanked him (Basu) for ‘opening his mouth 3 years later’. Now, co-producer Ranbir has spoken about the controversial step.
 
He said, "Unfortunately the entire track has been chopped off; it is our fault, Basu and mine. We had started this film very prematurely, without a complete script. The character had completely changed, and the film was taking so long. It is very irresponsible, and very unfair to cast a great legend like Govinda and not give justice to his role. It is very unfortunate the way things panned out. We are apologetic, but it is for the best for the film that we had to cut that track out.”


Well, let’s wait and watch to see if Govinda has a response to this statement as well.
