However what many don’t know is that during the first trial of Barfi, Basu’s daughters who watched the film didn’t quite love the film. This was when Anurag promised his daughters and assured them that the next film that he will go on to make will be something that they would completely enjoy.
Jagga Jasoos is an attempt by Anurag to cater to audiences of all age groups and a film that his daughters too would love and enjoy.
The duo, Anurag and Ranbir who delivered an extraordinary film Barfi, are coming together for the second time with Jagga Jasoos.
“The year Barfi! released, the film was loved by all and won all the top awards, but one award that eluded was from my kids. My daughters didn’t quite enjoy the film and that got me thinking about what didn’t work for them! Meanwhile, immediately after the 1st screening of Barfi! Ranbir asked me about the next film & I had few other stories that I wanted to make & Jagga Jasoos was one of them though planned for much later. But after the reaction of my daughters to Barfi!, I pushed all my other projects & preponed Jagga, knowing kids & families alike would enjoy the story.” Director Anurag Basu
