Katrina Kaif and Ranbir Kapoor were in a relationship when they were shooting for Jagga Jasoos, but later they broke up. Speculations were rife whether the two would promote the film together or not. Squashing all rumours, both actors showed up for the promotions and seemed extremely comfortable with each other.

When Katrina was asked how was the experience to work with Ranbir again, even before she could reply, Ranbir interrupted, Katrina always used to tell me I have given you two superhits Ajab Prem Ki Ghazab Kahani and Rajneeti. Whatever you are today, it’s because of me. So, I promised to return the favour when I turned producer by making a superhit film. So, Dada and I made this film only for you, Kat,” he jokingly said. “She is amazing in the movie, and this is going to be Katrina’s best performance,” he added.

 

Further, when a reporter questioned Ranbir whether Katrina had not given any hits, pat came the reply, “Kat is a superhit machine. I don’t think there has been a greater star than her in the film industry. Every generation sees a new superstar, and I think her achievements have been unbelievable. I hope she can double that in next ten years.” A special song Galti Se Mistake was unveiled which showed Ranbir’s dancing skills. “Dancing is crucial in films. It’s difficult for me because I am not a great dancer like Katrina. Not many know when she did Chikni Chameli and Kamli, I used to rehearse with her and show her the expressions, but there is no gratitude for that success,” he added playfully.

 

To which Kat cheekily asked, “Peeke aaya, kya?” much to the delight of all around. The banter between the two was infectious. 

Contradictory to the reports that Kat won’t promote Jagga Jasoos, Ranbir said, “This is my film as much as Katrina’s, and we would like to present it the best way possible.”

Earlier Jagga Jasoos was supposed to release with Chef, Mom and Haseena. But all other films changed their release dates. Ranbir said, “Every film that clashes, loses out on business, but I also believe that a good film will always do well.”

 

Also, Ranbir’s Sanjay Dutt biopic has been postponed to avoid clashing with Salman’s Tiger Zinda Hai.

He says, “I never get involved in deciding when a film should release and Tiger Zinda Hai is one of the biggest films. The producers would have worked on the logistics, but that is not for me to say as an actor. I was told our film was releasing in March, not December.”
