Earlier, some pictures of Govinda along with Katrina Kaif and Ranbir Kapoor had gone viral over the the internet. We were happy to see those Jagga Jasoos stills and were waiting to see Govinda once again on big screen. However, this excitement was short-lived, because his part has been chopped off from the film.
Yes, you heard it right! In spite of giving a brilliant performance , Govinda’s part has been deleted by the makers.
This was clarified by Anurag Basu himself; he said that, Govinda had shot for the movie in the 1st schedule, but after that there were many changes in the script. Since his role didn’t match the script, the scenes had to be removed. Basu added that it was just a guest appearance.
Govinda’s team had contacted the makers to include his scenes, but all in vain. Now, Govinda is miffed off with the filmmakers and has posted a series of tweets on his Twitter handle.
Here’s how he expressed disappointment;
1/5 I gave full respect to Kapoor family i did the film because he is my seniors son I was told I will get the script.
2/5 I was told they will narrate the film in South Africa and I dint even charge my signing amount made no contracts.
3/5 I was unwell and on drips but still I traveled to South Africa and did my shoot.
4/5 There were various negative stories and negative articles only for GOVINDA and that’s how the film was remembered for 3yrs.
5/5 I did my job as an actor and if the director is not happy it’s completely his call.
We would have loved to see Govinda in the movie but unfortunately, things didn’t work out.
