Anurag Basu is making Jagga Jasoos with Ranbir Kapoor and Katrina Kaif. But the director says that it is a disadvantage to work with real life couple as it gets difficult for them to romance on-screen.
Talking about the same, Anurag Basu told a news portal on the sidelines of IFFI, "Having a real-life couple is not an advantage but it is rather a disadvantage. The actors know each other so well and you are lovers in real-life, it gets difficult for them to bring their chemistry on the screen. So this is going to be very challenging," Basu told a news portal on the sidelines of IFFI.

Anurag Basu also clarified that Jagga Jasoos is not delayed, "We have not shot the film. Ranbir is shooting Karan Johar's film. I have only shot few days when he was free. Our film was always supposed to come after Bombay Velvet and Tamasha.''
''When I started my film I knew this is going to be my schedule as Ranbir keeps a gap of six months. No actor would release two films in two months. This was the chronology that was to happen. "It is good that speculations are there, it shows people are curious about the film," Anurag Basu said.
When the lead actor of the movie, Ranbir Kapoor, was asked to comment on Jagga Jasoos, the actor had told a website,"Jagga Jasoos is being made for the past two years and if it doesn't release, I will be ruined. I am the producer! Hopefully the film should release some time in June next year".
Jagga Jasoos is directed by Barfi fame, Anurag Basu. It is produced by Anurag Basu and Ranbir Kapoor. The film features Ranbir Kapoor, Katrina Kaif and Govinda in the lead roles.
Jagga Jasoos tells the story of a teenage detective in search of his missing father. Ranbir Kapoor is playing the role of a detective in the movie and Katrina is playing his love interest.
According to Anurag Basu, it is not easy to make a film with real life lovers as he thinks that it gets difficult for them to romance each other in front of the camera.
Ranbir Kapoor and Katrina Kaif met each other on the sets of Ajab Prem Ki Ghazab Kahani. It was their first film together. APKGK was a superhit movie and did a good business at the box office.
Now, both Ranbir Kapoor and Katrina Kaif will soon start the shooting of Anurag Basu's Jagga Jasoos. Meanwhile, Ranbir Kapoor is busy in the promotions of Tamasha, which got released today (27th Nov).
