Anurag Basu, who’s upcoming movie ‘Jagga Jasoos’ starring Ranbir Kapoor and Katrina Kaif is all set to hit the theatres very soon, recalled a rather interesting incident that took place during the course of the movie. He wanted to make sure that the crowd on the streets of Morocco wouldn’t hamper the shoot of the song ‘Ullu Ka Patha’.
Talking about the incident a crew member said, “For a scene in the song 'Ullu Ka Patha', the film’s leading stars, Ranbir Kapoor and Katrina Kaif needed to dance on the streets of Morocco. To analyse the kind of attention they would gather while filming, Anurag and his assistants began dancing on the street. To their surprise, a crowd instantly gathered to watch them perform.”
The source further said how Basu decided to leverage on the crowd’s attntion and presence, “Ranbir plays the role of a detective and the scene required him to ask for money from strangers. So, on the day of the shoot, Anurag made him really beg. He turned Ranbir into a ‘bhikari’."
Basu himself confirmed this incident and further added, “I asked Ranbir to hold a cap and ask for money from strangers for the song, and people did start putting money in it. Can you believe that he collected 250-300 Moroccan Dirhams (approximately Rs 1,500- Rs 2,000)? So, in the song, you see Ranbir genuinely collecting money from people while dancing.”
The movie will hit the silver screens on 14th July 2017.
