Director Anurag Basu recently confirmed that Govinda will not be a part of his upcoming film Jagga Jasoos. The director, while speaking to a news agency, said that they’ve made changes to the film’s plot and hence, Govinda’s part had to be chopped off in the final edit. Rumour also has it that the actor’s team tried to convince the director to retain his scenes in the film.
Recently, a still from Jagga Jasoos featuring Govinda and lead pair Ranbir Kapoor and Katrina Kaif went viral. However, there are numerous debates on various social networking sites on whether or not Govinda will be seen in the film, which will hit the screens on July 14.
Earlier, there were reports that Govinda was dropped from the project after he demanded changes in the script and because of his “unprofessional behaviour” on the film’s sets. The names of big stars like Amitabh Bachchan and Jackie Shroff were suggested for the part Govinda was to play. Govinda reportedly played the role of Jagga’s (Ranbir Kapoor) foster father in the film.
After being dropped from the film, it’ll be interesting to see how Govinda takes it.
