New Delhi: Veteran actor Rishi Kapoor lashed out at 'Jagga Jasoos' director Anurag Basu for spoiling his son Ranbir Kapoor's first film as a producer. Moreover, Rishi blames Anurag for cutting Govinda's role from the movie.
He said, “You even threw Govinda out of the film. If you don’t want Govinda to work in your film, why did you ask him in the first place? Iss sab mein Ranbir ka naam toh kharaab hoga, aur kya? Mera kharaab hoga!”
Actor Govinda thanked Rishi Kapoor for taking a stand in his favour. In an interview, he didn't justify himself for getting removed from the film without any reason. He mentioned, “Thank you Rishi sir. At last you showed concern. Good blood never speaks wrong’.
Further, he explained what went wrong with his cameo role in the film, “I truly feel that it’s the director’s (Anurag) call to do what he wants to do with his film, but a little professionalism is expected. I had no clue what they were up to. They were busy with their own things and I wasn’t even informed about it (his ouster from the film). This, despite me doing the film without even charging for it. I was unwell and on drips, but I still travelled to South Africa for the shoot as I didn’t want people to feel that I am unprofessional or making excuses. After doing all that, what I got in return has made me realise that I need to be more frank from now on. I shouldn’t be sensitive or emotional when it comes to work. I should make changes in myself as this is how the world functions.”
Despite this matter, Govinda says “if at all Anurag offers him a film again, he might still do it as we are all professionals”. Also, he talks about his special appearances in the further projects, “There might not be a second time as I might only do it for the Kapoors or Salman Khan’s family. Not that I don’t think the others are less important, it’s just that these families are special for me and I hold them in high regard,” the actor quoted.
