Anil Kapoor, who was last seen in Zoya Akhtar’s Dil Dhadakne Do, will be starring in Anees Bazmee‘s film Mubarakan. Anil Kapoor is all set to commence the shooting from January 2017.
At the recent Stardust Awards 2016, Anil Kapoor informed the media about the film and his role. He said, “I am playing a sardar in the film. I will start shooting from January 14. Arjun has already started shooting for the film.”
Recently, Anil Kapoor was news for rejecting looks for the film. However, Anil clarified that the look was rejected by the director himself. He said, “I was trying this look for Mubarakan. I was trying different looks for the film… It’s one of them, but my director Anees Bazmee rejected this look. He said I have to play the role of a sardar, who wears a turban.”
Mubarakan will bring real life nephew and uncle, Arjun Kapoor and Anil Kapoor, first time on-screen. The film also features Ileana D’Cruz, Athiya Shetty and Neha Sharma in key roles.
