Anurag Basu is working with Ranbir Kapoor and his girlfriend Katrina Kaif in “Jagga Jasoos” and the filmmaker says casting real-life couple in a film is often a disadvantage as it is difficult for them to romance on-screen.

The upcoming detective comedy-drama will reunite Basu with his “Barfi” star and this is the first time the director is helming a project with Katrina as the female lead. “Having a real-life couple is not an advantage but it is rather a disadvantage. The actors know each other so well and you are lovers in real-life, it gets difficult for them to bring their chemistry on the screen. So this is going to be very challenging,” Basu told PTI on the sidelines of IFFI.

The director says “Jagga Jasoos” is not delayed and it was supposed to come after Ranbir’s other projects- “Bombay Velvet” and “Tamasha”– as the actor prefers to have a gap of six months between his two movies.

“We have not shot the film. Ranbir is shooting Karan Johar’s film. I have only shot few days when he was free. Our film was always supposed to come after ‘Bombay Velvet’ and ‘Tamasha’. When I started my film I knew this is going to be my schedule as Ranbir keeps a gap of six months. No actor would release two films in two months. This was the chronology that was to happen.”
