If the film's run-ins with blocks and delays will end will be known in the coming weeks.
Jagga Jasoos was announced after Basu's last directorial venture, Barfi! (2012). The film has been in troubled waters even before it went on floors. After it got rolling, the schedules kept getting delayed due to some reason or the other.
After numerous obstacles, Jagga Jasoos was finally completed by its lead pair, Ranbir Kapoor and Katrina Kaif and the film got a release date of 7 April this year. However, it seems there might be further delay in the release of the film.
