JugJugg Jeeyo marks the acting comeback of Neetu Kapoor. Talking about the same, Anil Kapoor said, “We have known each other for many years. She’s been like a family member, so obviously it was very sad when Rishi sahab left us. When Karan said that she will be a part of the film, I was very happy. What was great was that when she came on the set, we never felt the heaviness of the whole situation. She never made us feel that. She is a very wonderful and brave lady. I am so happy that she is working, and I feel fortunate that her first film (after comeback) is with me. It has been great for the film, great for all of us, and a wonderful opportunity for me.”
