Mumbai: Bollywood's most loved couple - Ranbir Kapoor and Katrina Kaif are starring together in Jagga Jasoos. But there is a twist in the tale as Ranbir Kapoor portrays a role that is younger than Katrina's character. Katrina Kaif plays a role of the assistant of a teenage detective played by Ranbir Kapoor. Ranbir's character is 19 years old whereas Katrina plays a 22 years old young girl.
Jagga Jasoos, directed by Anurag Basu also features Govinda, who will be doing his second movie in 5 years after Holiday. The last movie of Govinda before Holiday was life partner released in 2009. Katrina Kaif and Ranbir Kapoor will be seen together third time after 'Ajab Prem Ki Ghazab Kahani' and 'Rajneeti'. Both of the films were commercially successful.
This will also be the second time Anurag Basu will be directing Ranbir Kapoor. They earlier worked in critically and commercially successful film 'Barfi'.
Katrina Kaif learned an Israeli marshal art technique called Krav Maga for this film. According to sources, Ranbir-Katrina's arguments caused some delay in the shooting of 'Jagga Jasoos' in Cape Town, South Africa. 'Jagga Jasoos' is a story of a teenage detective (played by Ranbir Kapoor) who embarks on a quest to find his missing father (played by Govinda). His beautiful assistant cum ladylove (played by Katrina Kaif) helps him on this mission.
