ANIL ON THE HUNT FOR ARJUN’S BRIDE
The two team up for the first time for Anees Bazmee’s upcoming family comedy.
One of the most eligible bachelors in Bollywood, Arjun Kapoor, currently has not one but two gorgeous leading ladies trying to convince him they are his Mrs Right. Eager to be his life partner, they have already popped the question on bended knees and the Ishaqzaade actor is debating on whom to give his heart to and whose heart to break. Confused, he has turned to none other than his uncle, Anil Kapoor, for some love guru advice.
Hang on, before your imagination can take flight, let’s make it clear that the 30-year-old actor is still very much single and not in a hurry to tie the knot. This is just the story of the family comedy-romance he has given his nod to, last month. Anees Bazmee’s Mubaraka, produced by Sony Pictures, will see the real life chacha-bhatija teaming up for the first time and enjoying the same relationship on screen too.
Anil and Anees have earlier teamed up for two blockbuster franchises, No Entry andWelcome, and Arjun is super-excited to have signed his first “full-fledged commercial film” which flags off later this year and will be shot entirely abroad. Presently, the hunt is on for two leading ladies.
“It’s like The Big Fat Greek Weddingmeets-No Entry. There will be plenty of chaos,” promises a source close to the film. His last release, Ki And Ka, had him playing the house-husband to corporate honcho, Kareena Kapoor. While he was eager to get married to Bebo in the Balki-directorial, this time, he’ll be running away from all the band, baaja and baraat.
Arjun is presently filming Mohit Suri’s Half Girlfriend, an adaptation of the Chetan Bhagat best-seller by the same name, with Shraddha Kapoor in Delhi. The actor has trained rigorously in basketball for the part, and has been managing to play like a pro, more recently. The next schedule of the film will be in New York. Once he wraps up this film, he will start prepping up for Mubaraka. And, we can’t wait!
