But Ranbir Kapoor (who is the film’s co-producer) has been shooting simultaneously for Anurag Kashyap’s Bombay Velvet. We’ve to shoot Jagga Jasoos during the gaps in the shooting of Bombay Velvet. We completed one schedule. Now we’ll go into a lengthy schedule from August. By the end of the year the shooting would be complete.”
