The high budget, coupled with mixed reviews seem to be among the reasons that Jagga Jasoos has performed poorly at the ticket window. The film, which got delayed a number of times, is reportedly made at over Rs100 crore. 

Disturbed by the fate of the film, Rishi Kapoor, Ranbir’s father, has also slammed Basu for delaying the project, which added to the cost of production. The film is Basu and Ranbir’s first co-production. 

Needless to say, Jagga Jasoos now stands little chance of recovering its enormous cost of production. It has become yet another major loss of 2017 after Rangoon, Sarkar 3, Raabta and Tubelight.
