New Delhi :  

Ranbir Kapoor's much delayed 'Jagga Jasoos' is all set to hit the screens next week and while the trailer has grabbed the audience's attention, RK's look also became the talk of the town. The 'Barfi' actor is seen in a child like appearance with his unique harido being similar to that of a cartoon character Tintin.

Talking about the same, filmmaker Anurag Basu revealed that this wasn't the first choice for Ranbir's look in 'Jagga Jasoos' and that it is sheer coincidence that his hairdo matches with Tintin.

"I am aware that the hairdo is the most obvious point of discussion. I wanted to give Ranbir a unique hairdo. This look wasn't my first choice. When we started trying out different looks, there was one we liked, but it did not make him look very child-like, which was an essential. No other look, apart from this one, matched our narrative. It's a coincidence that it is the same as that of Tintin," Anurag Basu was quoted as saying.

The ace-filmmaker also revealed that he has always been a fan of adventure stories and used to of stacks of Tintin comics in his room. Basu also asserted that with 'Jagga Jasoos' he feels it's his childhood hitting the big screen.

"I used to love adventure stories when I was a kid. The setting and details of such stories often stay at the back of your mind and resurface when you are creating something of your own. 'Jagga Jasoos' is my childhood playing on the screen," Basu added.

Also starring Ranbir's ex-girlfriend Katrina Kaif, 'Jagga Jasoos' will release on July 14.
