Looks like Ranbir Kapoor and Katrina Kaif starrer JAGGA JASOOS is a jinxed project with the film getting delayed and mired in controversies every now and then. So, obviously director Anurag Basu wouldn’t want his film to get entangled into controversies further.


As soon as the news flashed out saying that Anurag Basu has accused Salman Khan for putting his film JAGGA JASOOS in jeopardy (as reportedly Katrina has stopped shooting for the film because of her alleged break-up with Ranbir and more so after she met Salman Khan at YRF studios during SULTAN shoot and had a long chat with him), Anurag took to a micro-blogging site to clarify that he never blamed Salman. He wrote, “Me blaming Salman for the delay of jagga.:-)HOW WHEN??! Person who created this news shd write fiction we need good writers in the industry.”

While Anurag claims that he never blamed Salman, the fact is that he is not fond of the star also. And that was evident when at an event last year Anurag publicly called Salman “boring and repetitive”. While at that point of time Anurag was vocal about his opinion regarding the star, bluntly said that he would any day prefer Ranbir over Salman and never showed a sign of skepticism in expressing his views, it seems now the filmmaker is cautious about venting anything against the star (Salman). Reason? JAGGA JASOOS has been facing a lot of roadblocks off late and now a stage has arrived when the project seems to be stuck for various whys and wherefores. Moreover, who would want to take panga with the uncrowned superstar of the industry Salman Khan, who is currently ruling the roost?

Now whether Anurag changed his words or now taking his words back (regarding his accusations against Salman) or not that we don’t know. But we certainly smell something fishy here!
