Ranbir Kapoor-Katrina Kaif starrer Jagga Jasoos is in news for mostly wrong reasons. The film is already 2 years into the making but it still has not completed its shooting and its release date keeps getting postponed. This is causing a huge frustration in fans as they are eagerly waiting for the film.
Earlier, the movie was scheduled to release on 7th April but it has been shifted from that date but the makers have not confirmed the new date. Another concerning aspect is that there are still some songs’ shooting pending so it might take another month for this Anurag Basu directorial to finish the film.
We think, 2nd June will be the perfect date for Jagga Jasoos to release. The whole May month is already booked with big films so it won’t be a good idea to release the film then. 5th May is not a good bet as Baahubali 2 will be still huge in buzz. 12th May already has Meri Pyaari Bindu, Sarkar 3 and Hindi Medium clashing. 19th May is absolutely a no-no as Arjun Kapoor-Shraddha Kapoor’s Half Girlfriend will be all over the box office that week. 26th May has Sachin Tendulkar’s documentary ‘Sachin: A Billion Dreams‘ and Rajkummar Rao’s Behen Hogi Teri.
This leaves Jagga Jasoos with only one suitable date: 2nd June. Akshay Kumar’s Toilet: Ek Prem Katha has been postponed to 11th August so no film is there on 2nd June which is a good opportunity for the makers of JJ to do business. After that date and once Salman Khan’s Tubelight hits the theaters, there are no possible dates available as all the big films down the year have already booked them.
June is also a perfect month for Jagga Jasoos as by that time, film’s shoot and post-production work can comfortably get over. The trailer of the film has got a good response so it’s sensible to capitalize on that buzz while it is still fresh. Further delay is only going to harm the film’s prospects.
