Actor Govinda, who was supposed to make a special appearance as Ranbir Kapoor’s father in Anurag Basu’s much-delayed Jagga Jasoos, won’t be a part of the film.
There were reports that the makers weren’t happy with the way Jagga Jasoos had shaped up and several scenes were being reshot.
Govinda had already shot his scenes, but the makers wanted fresh dates. When the actor couldn’t give them those dates, they decided to replace him with Anil Kapoor.
A source close to the film tells DNA “Govinda had finished shooting but the makers wanted fresh dates from him. Also they were not too happy his errant ways so they decided to replace him. They have almost finalised on Anil to play Ranbir’s father”
Govinda says “I did my guest role for the film. Whether they retain it or not, you will have to check with them.”
