Actor Arjun Kapoor, who will be seen in Anees Bazmee’s upcoming directorial Mubarakan, says actor Ileana D’Cruz has done a lot of action in the film. Arjun, who will be seen in a double role in the romantic comedy film, said, “Ileana has hit me in every scene. Ileana is somebody I enjoyed working with because primarily there’s a comfort knowing that she has done comedy before, so the banter that we have managed to create as our characters would keep having small fights in our love story,” the actor said in a statement.
Arjun will be portraying a double role in the film — one as the urban and mischievous guy Karan Singh and the other as a simple, naive turbaned Charan Singh. Apart from Arjun Kapoor and Ileana D’Cruz, the film also stars his uncle Anil Kapoor and Athiya Shetty. The film, which has been directed by Anees Bazmee, will be released worldwide on July 28.
Arjun Kapoor was last seen in Half Girlfriend, alongside Shraddha Kapoor which was based on Chetan Bhagat book of the same name, and directed by Mohit Suri.
Arjun had debuted alongside Parineeti Chopra in Ishaqzaade which was directed by Habib Faisal. Ileana D’Cruz made her debut with Anurag Basu directorial Barfi alongside Ranbir Kapoor and Priyanka Chopra. Her last Hindi film was Rustom with Akshay Kumar that was directed by Tinu Suresh Desai. She won the award for Best Female Debut for Barfi in Filmfare Awards, ZEE Cine, Star Guild.
