Ranbir Kapoor has donned the hat of a producer for the first time with Jagga Jasoos. The movie which has been in news for three years now has a lot at stake. While a lot has been said about the movie, Ranbir Kapoor has now told if the movie tanks at the Box Office, he would return the money of the distributors. The movie is helmed by Anurag Basu and also features Katrina Kaif in an important role, marking her and Ranbir’s third collaboration after Rajneeti and Ajab Prem Ki Gazab Kahani.
Speaking to a daily, Ranbir Kapoor said, “It has been going on since my grandfather’s (Raj Kapoor) time in the 1950s… It is a healthy exercise. If someone loses money on something and you have made money out of it, it’s good to compensate. But that depends on person to person and film to film. Like when Mera Naam Joker released, distributors incurred losses. So when Bobby released, my grandfather gave a bigger share to the distributors than the exhibitors.” Ranbir Kapoor added if he is making money out of a failed movie, it was his responsibility to take care of people’s losses.
Now that Ranbir has said he would do return the money, the distributors can now take a sigh of relief.
A few days ago it was revealed that Salman Khan will pay back to the distributors after Tubelight debacle. With Ranbir Kapoor joining the league of Salman Khan, let us see if other biggies of Bollywood follow suit.
Jagga Jasoos’ delay has made many skeptical about the movie. But Ranbir Kapoor feels the movie is heartwarming and will definitely connect with the viewers. In an interview with InUth, Ranbir explained why he didn’t feel bad about the constant delay in the movie. He said, “I was prepared for it because I had worked with Dada in a film called Barfi and that’s his style of working. He works under chaos, he takes time. He really kind of surrenders to the film, which can be really hard for the actors.”
