Even after their breakup, Katrina Kaif and Ranbir Kapoor are working together in Jagga Jasoos. And we all know how important this film is for Ranbir because he is the producer of the film and after a lot of delay, the movie is finally releasing on April 17th next year.
The co-producers of the film - Anurag Basu and Siddharth Roy Kapur have strictly told Katrina Kaif and Ranbir Kapoor to promote the film, just the way Ranveer Singh and Deepika Padukone promote their films. But it seems Katrina is in no mood to forgive Ranbir Kapoor. Read everything in detail below.
The Strategy Of The Filmmakers
A source told DNA, "A strategy has been planned. Before the release, some story or the other, either linking them together or fighting, will keep coming out in the news. Since last month, news has been circulating about Ranbir and Katrina patching up.''
Production Team Wants Katrina To Be Like Deepika
''There have been stories about both being very friendly with each other on photoshoots and on the sets. The production team wants Ranbir and Katrina to promote the film like Deepika Padukone and Ranveer Singh - with sincerity and affection.''
They Want Ranbir To Promote The Movie Like Ranveer
''Ranveer is extremely exuberant, demonstrative and physical in his show of affection. Katrina and Ranbir have moved on in their lives, but the film's team want them to be more affectionate and natural towards each other as they will be promoting the film together."
Ranbir & Katrina Not On Talking Terms
"Right now, they are not even talking to each other. They shot the last schedule in Mumbai last week in complete silence. They would come on the sets, shoot, and go back to their vans.''
When Things Became Worse
''During one of their earlier schedules, things had become so bad that Ranbir's best friend Ayan Mukerji had to be brought in to calm them down.''
Producers Don’t Want To Take Any Additional Risk
‘'There have been enough delayed schedules and cancellations of the film's dates because of the couple and the film has been delayed by almost two years. Now the producers don't want to take any additional risks before the release."
No Patch Up Possible
"Everybody has tried to patch them up off-screen, but it's not happening. Whether it is stories about remaining together or patching up, they have to remain in the news, come what may till the film releases, so it remains hot.''
Cold Vibes Between Ranbir & Katrina Might Affect Jagga Jasoos
‘'The producers of Jagga Jasoos feel that the cold vibes between their main leads might affect the box-office prospects of the film and there has been enough negativity around it.''
On a related note, Disney is co-producing Jagga Jasoos, which is the debut venture of Ranbir and Basu's production house Picture Shuru Productions. "Jagga Jasoos will release exactly a year after the Studio's hugely successful The Jungle Book (released on 8 April, 2016) and Jagga Jasoos promises to be the Disney summer spectacle for 2017!" Disney said in a recent statement.

Jagga Jasoos had been in the making for a while. To add to all their troubles the breakup of the film's lead pair, Ranbir and Katrina, during the making of the film further delayed shoots. Earlier reports also suggest that the film's shoot was called off for over a week after their breakup.
Jagga Jasoos revolves around the story of Jagga, played by Ranbir, who has only one aim in life and that is to find his father's killers. Katrina, who plays his love interest, supports him in this endeavour.
