Filmmaker Anurag Basu is gearing up to shoot a 13-episode series titled "Junior Jagga", which will be aired on television.

The series will show the young Jagga from the film "Jagga Jasoos". In the flick, Ranbir Kapoor plays the character of Jagga, and Basu reportedly wanted to show the audience the life of junior Jagga. 

Keeping in tune with it, the series will have child artists playing Ranbir and Katrina Kaif's role and showing their early life.

"The show will have a child artiste playing Ranbir's character and showing the formative years of Jagga. Anurag will start shooting the series next year," Deccan Chronicle quoted a source as saying.

"He (Ranbir) will appear in the final episode of the TV series. It's an interesting innovation to familiarise one's movie content with the audience much in advance," the insider further added.

While the "Bombay Velvet" actor will appear in the final episode of "Junior Jagga", there are speculations that Katrina might also feature along with her real life beau.

The film, "Jagga Jasoos", will bring the couple together on the big screen after a long time.  The love birds were last seen sharing screen space in the film "Raajneeti" (2010). The film also marks the return of Ranbir and Anurag Basu after "Barfi" (2012).

The schedule of the film has been completed in Thailand and South Africa. Though, "Jagga Jasoos" was earlier expected to be released in November this year, recent reports suggest that the film's release date has been delayed to mid-2016.
