JugJugg Jeeyo: Raj Mehta says he’s ‘anxious’ about Varun Dhawan, Kiara Advani’s film’s release, here’s why

JugJugg Jeeyo is gearing up to hit the big screen this week. But in addition to feeling excited, director Raj Mehta also seems to be a tad bit nervous. The filmmaker recently opened up about why he feels a certain amount of anxiety when it comes to his film’s release.

In conversation with PTI, Mehta talked about the box office performances of recent Bollywood films, very few of which managed to live up to the hype. The director spoke of how there were different theories coming up every week about what kind of films would work and which wouldn't. While some argued that the ‘trend’ was of ‘big’ films witnessing success, others argued that it was not the case. He spoke of how there was a lot of ‘uncertainty’ regarding the same and how he was not sure if anyone knew exactly what kind of films would work. “Does that add to the anxiety? Absolutely”, he said.

The director went on to say that filmmakers can never be confident that the films they made would do well. He said that the added pressure came with the fact that JugJugg Jeeyo is his second film after his directorial debut Good Newwz, which emerged as a success. But although Mehta was nervous, he said that he was also excited. One of the things that gave the director reassurance was the fact that his producer was happy with the film. The director also teased that the film had more to offer than what was shown in its trailer.

The upcoming films stars Varun Dhawan, Kiara Advani, Anil Kapoor, Neetu Kapoor, Maniesh Paul and Prajakta Koli.

JugJugg Jeeyo will be released on June 24.
