Bollywood actor Govinda is not at all happy with the fact that ‘Jagga Jassos’ makers scissored through his scenes in the movie. On a series of threaded tweets he expressed his anger, slammed the makers for making the edit and gave his clarification.
Govinda explained that he was a part of the movie without signing a contract or taking a signing amount out of 'respect' for his 'senior's son' Ranbir Kapoor. He also added that he was not well while he travelled to South Africa to shoot his part.
"I gave full respect to Kapoor family I did the film because he is my senior's son. I was told I will get the script. I was told they will narrate the film in South Africa and I didn't even charge my signing amount made no contracts. I was unwell and on drips but still I traveled to South Africa and did my shoot," Govinda posted on Twitter. "I did my job as an actor and if the director is not happy it's completely his call," he added.
Ranbir and Anurag Basu (also the film's director) have jointly produced Jagga Jasoos with UTV Motion Pictures.
Director Anurag Basu explained his decision of editing Govinda's part in the film by saying that there were changes made to the story. He told news agency PTI: "I've shot a couple of days with him in the first schedule. Then there were changes in the story and other things. But Govinda isn't in the film, his part isn't there. It was very kind of him to agree when I requested him for the guest appearance. But it's our loss that he isn't there."
