Following the failure of his latest film Jagga Jasoos, director Anurag Basu has sent out hugs to the detractors saying rejection doesn't mean dejection for him.
"Thank you so much for your love and appreciation for Jagga Jassos. It's like oxygen for me right now. Tight hugs... And for those who disliked it, hugs for them too, coz your rejection paves the way for my next and I promise I'll try not to disappoint you," Basu tweeted on Wednesday evening.
Jagga Jasoos, presented in a musical format, banked on the emotional ups and downs of the protagonists' lives as they embark on a mission to hunt for Jagga's father. The film, which had been in the making for three years, features Ranbir Kapoor and Katrina Kaif in the lead roles.
In a recent interview with the Mid-Day newspaper, Ranbir Kapoor's father, veteran actor Rishi Kapoor, lashed out at Basu for delaying the film and called the director 'irresponsible' when it comes to money and time. Ranbir Kapoor is a co-producer of the film.
