Jug Jugg Jeeyo is an upcoming big banner Bollywood romantic drama that is going to entertain you with romance as well as comedy. In the film, Bollywood’s popular star Anil Kapoor and Nitu Singh will be paired for the first time.
Anil Kapoor was last seen in the 2020 black comedy thriller AK vs AK, which was directed by Vikramaditya Motwane and produced by Anurag Kashyap and the team.
If we talk about Neetu Singh, she is making a grand comeback with this movie, after a 9-year long period. She was last seen in Abhinav Kashyap’s 2013 Bollywood action comedy film Besharam starring her son and Bollywood’s big star Ranbir Kapoor.
Her late husband, Bollywood’s most successful and veteran star Rishi Kapoor also featured in the film. Neetu and Rishi both played the role of husband-wife namely Head Constable Bulbul Chauta and Inspector Chulbul Chautala in the film.
Although the film was a below-average movie and turned out to be one of the biggest flops, the chemistry between this real-life husband-wife in the film was appreciated by the audience.
