However during these hectic campaigns, we saw Ranbir Kapoor in his elements making many announcements including that this will be last film as a producer. Now recently, Ranbir Kapoor agreed that there were times when they, that is he, Katrina and the director of the film Anurag Basu, contemplated on shelving the film completely.
