When asked about his hopes with “Jagga Jasoos”, Ranbir said: “Its bit superficial thing but when I entered this industry, I always dreamt of winning best actor award and giving good performances so that audience and critics appreciate my work.
“I always had a desire to win a best film award and I hope with this film we can achieve that”
