To kick off our list of April Bollywood films, Jagga Jasoos is a much-anticipated picture with Ranbir Kapoor and Katrina Kaif that’s finally hitting the screens after many delays. It was said, for the most part, that the delays were due to arguments between former lovers Kapoor and Kaif. However, the director of the film, Anurag Basu, made a statement saying that after the success of Barfi! he decided to take some time out to spend with family before working on his next big project. The film follows Jagga, played by Kapoor, who has been curious about everything since his father was murdered when he was a child, and Shruti, played by Kaif, who helps Jagga work out who was behind his father’s death.
