Used same style for Jagga Jasoos as Barfi: Anurag Basu

The director says they wanted to evoke the same feel good sensation with his upcoming film

Published: 06th July 2017

Filmmaker Anurag Basu says his upcoming film Jagga Jasoos, an adventurous musical, is as feel good as his Barfi.

Jagga Jasoos features Ranbir Kapoor and Katrina Kaif as Jagga and Shruti, who are on an adventure hunt for Jagga's father. The film showcases Ranbir as a school boy who is estranged from his father. 

In Barfi, Ranbir essayed a differently abled man who develops an innocent love story with an autistic girl. The film was a heart-wrenching story which explored the meaning of true love. 

Anurag says there's a connect between both the stories."We wanted to evoke a feel good sensation with Jagga Jasoos. That's why we made it as close to Barfi in style as we could". The director says his whole team is the same. "I didn't even want to change my style in this film. I tried the same style that I used for Barfi. That is why you feel there are similarities. Otherwise, the story is different," he says.

The musical film marks the second collaboration of Anurag-Ranbir and music composer Pritam, who had worked together for Barfi. The film will see a release on July 14.
