Interestingly, Anil Kapoor has previously shared screen space with both John Abraham (Welcome Back) and Ileana D’Cruz (Mubarakan) in Anees Bazmee’s films.
Bhushan Kumar, who is co-producing Pagalpanti, said, “T-Series and Kumarji’s Panorama Studios have worked before on Raid. Doing Pagalpanti was an immediate yes. Kumarji and his son Abhishek got us the script of this film and my team and I were in splits with what we heard. Plus the entire team, right from director Anees to actors Anilji, John and Ileana, we have already worked with. The characters are so hilarious that you will end up laughing throughout the movie.”
Pagalpanti is scheduled to release on December 6, 2019.
