The latest buzz to grip the tinsel town is that Anurag Basu has roped in Priyanka Chopra and Alia Bhatt for his film Jagga Jasoos toplining Ranbir Kapoor. Yes, it’s been a while since Alia’s name was touted as the second lead in the film, and as per trade sources, Priyanka too is on board for this two-heroine project.
Ooh! that’s quite a casting coup pulled off by Anurag Basu. The twitter world has already taken a shine to this news. “Anurag Basu has signed Ranbir, Priyanka and Alia for his next "JAGGA JASOOS". Cant wait. WOHHHOOOO,” writes a fan of Priyanka Chopra on twitter. However, an official confirmation from the makers of the film is awaited.
It’s learnt that Anurag is currently busy completing the script of the film, and has already met Alia Bhatt regarding his project. Incidentally, it was Alia’s father Mahesh Bhatt who was instrumental in launching Anurag’s career in Bollywood through Murder.
Alia Bhatt is glad that an offer like Jagga Jasoos has come her way. She doesn’t want to let go off this opportunity of working with Anurag Basu and Ranbir Kapoor, that too in a Disney film, reveal sources. As far as casting Priyanka Chopra is concerned, the actress and director share a great rapport after Barfi!, and there seems to be no reason why Pee Cee wouldn’t want to be a part of Anurag’s film.
Jagga Jasoos is a first of its kind venture by Disney, co-produced by Picture Shuru -- Ranbir and Anurag Basu's new production company -- and UTV. The movie will be a full-on Disney franchise and the long term plan would be to take it into multiple sequels, merchandising, consumer products, graphic comics, television, gaming and much more. Phew! that’s quite an elaborate planning.
The movie is expected to go on the floors by the year-end.
