First look of Sayani Gupta, 31, playing 14-year-old - brings back buzz to Jagga Jasoos

The languishing Jagga Jasoos sparked off some excitement among cinema lovers thanks to Sayani Gupta’s teen age act. 

As NewCrunch had noted earlier, the  31-year-old actress plays a 14-year-old girl in the film.    

The filmmakers have shaved off nearly half of her years using slick makeup and VFX. With a ponytail Sayani does look 14. All that is missing are the braces on her teeth you may say. 

The movie traces Ranbir Kapoor’s growth to adulthood. He will also be playing a school-going boy in a few sequences, in which Sayani would be his friend. 

The next wait is to see Ranbir Kapoor in shorts, going back in years, to sport the teenage look. 

The energetic media coverage is good news for Jagga Jasoos, which fell prey to Ranbir and Katrina’s break up and languished due to few other factors. 

Coming back to Sayani,  she was so desperate to get the challenging role, she chopped her real hair short for the audition. Director Anurag Basu was impressed that Sayani had taken so much trouble just for an audition and okayed her for the role.
