As per the latest update on Govinda’s appearance in Katrina Kaif, Ranbir Kapoor film, at the trailer launch of the film recently, director Anurag Basu said that the actor’s part did not make it to the final cut. As few other reports suggest that Govinda, who was reportedly linked to play Ranbir Kapoor’s foster father in the film, was dropped after his “unprofessional behavior”.

Remember the complete surprise when we saw a picture of Govinda with Jagga Jasoos co-stars Katrina Kaif and Ranbir Kapoor and the news of his appearance in the film broke on the internet? What took us by surprise then was the last-minute revelation of his presence and the curious attire he was in. We also saw Katrina and Ranbir in the background in the leaked picture. But as per the latest update, at the trailer launch of the film recently, director Anurag Basu said that Govinda’s part did not make it to the final cut.

A news report quoted Anurag who said, “I did shoot with Govinda for about 20 days. It was for a special cameo. The picture that came out online was from the first schedule of the film when I had shot with him. But over time the script changed and a lot of things changed. So his role didn’t go with the script. It was very kind of him that he said yes. Anyway, his was not any lead role. It was a small guest appearance. So everyone who thinks Govinda is in the film, let me tell you he is not there in the movie.”

Also, a report in Mid-Day suggests that Govinda, who was reportedly tied to play Ranbir Kapoor’s foster father in the film, was dropped after his “unprofessional behavior”. The report stated that earlier Govinda had denied being a part of the much-delayed Jagga Jasoos as he was busy with one of his home productions. But the film got shelved.

It looks like that his fans will have to wait until July 14 when Jagga Jasoos will finally hit the theaters, to find out if Govinda’s appearance makes it to the final cut or not.
