Filming took place in Cape Town, South Africa.[5] Reports from Cape Town were that the real-world romance of leads Ranbir Kapoor and Katrina Kaif and occasional arguments between the two caused some delays and resulted in scenes not having the impact intended by director Anurag Basu.[6][7] By March 20 2014, the director had completed 20 days of filming with his leads and, being unhappy with initial efforts by actor Ranbir Kapoor,[8] intends to use the additional schedule time to re-shoot some scenes.[9] Ranbir Kapoor has been simultaneously shooting for Anurag Kashyap's Bombay Velvet. The director explained, "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."[10] On October 21 2014, the team started filming in Thailand. On April 20 2016, they filmed in Darjeeling. Ravi Varman is the Director of Photography. The film was also shot in Morocco.[11]

The film was originally going to release on November 27 2016, but due to conflicting commitments by the lead actors, the film's release date was pushed to April 2017. Then the director called back Ranbir and Katrina for reshooting of some scenes on the set and the film is once again pushed to release on July 14 2017.[12]


The film is scheduled to be released on July 14 2017. A sneak peak of the film was released on December 19 2016.


Songs of the movie have been composed by Pritam and have lyrics by Amitabh Bhattacharya.[13] The film is said to be a Musical and will have a lot of songs. There will be total of 29 songs in the film and will be part of the narrative.[14] Ranbir Kapoor will be seen singing most of his dialogues rather than say them.[15]
