While giving his own version of delay, However, director Anurag Basu set the record straight saying that it was solely his fault. Talking about the delay in the shooting schedule, he said, it was his decision to delay the film and that he had shot only for only 10 days in 2015. He went on to reveal that he wanted to ‘take a break’ as his film ‘Barfi!’ had done very well at the box office and that it was the first time he had earned a lot of money. The director admitted that he just wanted to ‘enjoy’ the moment and spend time with his family. Talking about his leading pair, he said that Ranbir and Katrina became ‘more professional’ and gave more to the film post their break-up than before it. Media had reported earlier that the reasons behind delay in release of the movie was due to Ranbir and Katrina’s break-up.
Basu said, He was on Holiday mood after success of “Burfi”. He shot only for only 10 days in 2015.

Ranbir Kapoor and Katrina Kaif were supposed to shoot for a special track for ‘Jagga Jasoos’ that would be used for the film’s promotions. However, their “Break-up” messed up every thing. citing The film producers made a weak excuse saying it was due to Ranbir and Katrina’s busy schedules that forced the makers to drop the idea of a special song. Ranbir was busy shooting for the Sanjay Dutt biopic while the Katrina is busy shooting action film opposite Salman Khan.
Reports says that besides their chock-a-block schedule, the lead actors’ altered physique has reportedly been another deterrent. In a bid to look like Sanjay Dutt, Ranbir has bulked up for the Rajkumar Hirani-directed film. Similarly, Katrina has attained an athletic figure for the Salman Khan-starrer. As a result, both the stars currently sport different looks compared to their look in ‘Jagga Jasoos’. The makers realised that its practically impossible to shoot for the promotional number at this stage and they decided to drop the idea.
Anyways, all is well when end is well. Film is now complete and ready to be released.
