Nothing gets the audience as excited as the prospect of real life relatives coming together onscreen. Be it the first time that Ranbir Kapoor
worked with his parents in Besharam or the time when Salman Khan
and Arbaaz Khan starred together in Pyaar Kiya Toh Darna Kya – the audience is curious to see the real-life chemistry on celluloid. While it may not directly translate into numbers at the ticket windows, it does help generate a buzz around the film, becoming a handy tool for promotions. This is exactly the reason why Anil Kapoor and Arjun Kapoor starrer Mubarakan has garnered attention ever since the cast of the film was announced.
The film has Anil Kapoor and Arjun Kapoor playing uncle and nephew, which they are in real life too. This is the first time that the uncle-nephew jodi has collaborated for a movie and that explains the fans' excitement for the film. What's more...it has also been reported that Arjun Kapoor has a double whammy in the film. Mubarakan also features two female leads - Ileana D'Cruz and Athiya Shetty.
The film has now gone on the floors and the shooting of the film has begun in the quiet locality of Weybridge in Surrey near London. A crew member from the sets of the film has shared a video of the set on his Instagram account. It seems like the makers of the film are shooting the night scenes first. From the look of it, the sets seem to be quite a spectacle!
Check out the video below…
Mubarakan is touted to be a romantic comedy that perhaps also involves a big, fat Indian wedding, what with the first look of the film reading like a wedding invite.
Produced by Murad Khetani and Ashwin Varde, the film was earlier supposed to be directed by Milap Zaveri but it is now being helmed by Anees Bazmee, who has delivered hits like Welcome and No Entry with Anil earlier. However, it will be the first time that the director will work with Arjun Kapoor. The film is slated for release on July 28, 2017.
