New version of Jazbaa trailer to be out this week, says director Sanjay Gupta


Director Sanjay Gupta has announced that a revised version of his upcoming movie’s trailer, Jazbaa would be released by this week.

The official trailer which was released on 25 August was over-rated as “too green” by the critics.

“The version you saw is meant for theatres. On the large screen, the green colour that otherwise seems overpowering on the television computer and mobile screen will spread itself out. On the smaller screen, we did not anticipate the colour’s impact. We’ve corrected it now. A new version of the trailer will go on air this week,” Gupta was quoted by DNA.


Nevertheless, Gupta has also defended the trailer’s old version labelling it as “distinctive” like his other movies. He says, “Every film of mine has a distinctive sound, look, flavour, colour and personality. In Jazbaa, we’ve gone for a particular look and sound. The film’s technique would make itself apparent when the film releases. Why are people jumping the gun on the basis of the trailer?”

Jazbaa is a remake of the Korean film, Seven Days. The film also stars Irfan Khan, Shabana Azmi and Jackie Shroff in lead roles.

The audience would get to see Aishwarya Rai Bachchan, who is also making a comeback in Bollywood with this movie, in an all new avatar. She plays the role of a lawyer who fights all odds to get her daughter back from the kidnappers.

Meanwhile, the sound quality has been altered in the movie depending on the screen’s size. On this, Gupta says, “My sound recordist has worked on a different sound quality for the trailer of Jazbaa. In the theatres, the sound mixing would be done to accommodate the Digital Dolby and Dolby Atmos sound facility. But on the computer, television and mobile screen the sound has to be far less enhanced and much more intimate.”

Produced under the banner of Essel Vision, White Feather Films and Viking Entertainment, Jazbaa is scheduled to release on 9 October.
