It was during this film’s shoot that Neetu Kapoor, Varun Dhawan and the film’s director Raj Mehta tested positive for Covid-19. The Chandigarh schedule was supposed to last for 40 days, till December 24, but due to the actors testing positive, the schedule ran almost two weeks late.

Last week, Raj Mehta announced on social media that the cast and crew had resumed shooting.


This project will mark Neetu Kapoor’s comeback to films after eight years. Her last film was Besharam, with her son Ranbir Kapoor in 2012. It also marks Mehta’s second directorial venture after the 2019 film Good Newwz. A report in Mumbai Mirror quotes a source saying that the film revolves around a North Indian family and the “strained relationship” of the older couple. Produced by Dharma Productions, Jug Jugg Jeeyo also stars actors Kiara AdvaniAnil Kapoor, and YouTuber Prajakta Koli. The story revolves around two married couples across two generations – one couple played by Varun Dhawan and Kiara Advani, and the other couple played by Anil Kapoor and Neetu Kapoor.

While Neetu Kapoor has wrapped up her portions, the rest of the cast are still busy shooting for the film in Patiala. According to the report in Mumbai Mirror, the cast and crew will be shooting briefly in Mumbai and also abroad, after their Chandigarh schedule.
