On this note, Ranbir said in an interview with Mid-day, how director Anurag Basu, Katrina and he often thought of shelving the film. Ranbir said. “We [Ranbir, Anurag and Katrina] would often discuss the progress of the film. Often, we would wonder if we should shelve it.” However, the story of Jagga Jasoos kept Ranbir going. “But then, in the end, I’d go back to the time I first heard the story, when it made me feel amazing. And that took us through the journey. When I saw the film, I realised that it turned out exactly like my director had envisioned it, like he had narrated it four years ago. It felt really good.” ALSO READ: Shah Rukh Khan NOT doing a song in Sidharth Malhotra – Sonakshi Sinha’s Ittefaq Also Read - Emraan Hashmi Speaks on Ranbir Kapoor-Alia Bhatt's Wedding Rumours

Ranbir also spoke about why the film took so long. He said, “There are some films which take time to make. I have shot for ‘Jagga Jasoos’ for 150 days. But, in the past, I have shot for other films for as long. This film only took longer to come together.” The film was surrounded by controversies, with claims of plagiarism over the song ‘Galti Se Mistake’ to name one. But Ranbir and team decided to focus on the positives and decided to continue. “We had to battle the negative reports surrounding the film. I would be lying if I said that it didn’t bother me. In the end, we decided to concentrate on the positives and move ahead.” Also Read - Ranbir Kapoor And Shraddha Kapoor's Film Directed by Luv Ranjan, Gets a Release Date- Read Deets
