SPN to replicate Anil & Arjun Kapoor's real life relationship in 'Mubarakan'

MUMBAI: Sony Pictures Networks Productions (SPNP), a division of Sony Pictures Networks India (SPN), has announced their next film titled Mubarakan. In a casting coup of sorts, SPNP has roped in the real life chacha- bhatija Anil Kapoor and Arjun Kapoor for this film. The duo will replicate the same camaraderie that they share in real life on screen too.

The film also stars Ileana D’Cruz, Athiya Shetty, Amrita Singh amongst others.

Mubarakan is a laugh riot with confusions galore, laughter, love, egos and emotions.

“We are very excited to embark on our journey for Mubarakan. From drama to horror to slice of life cinema and now comedy, we aim to present content that engages, evokes and entertains our audiences. I am certain that Mubarakan will be one of the most anticipated movies of 2017 and we look forward to receiving the same overwhelming support like we have in our previous movies”, said SPNP Dy president and head Sneha Rajani.

This family comedy will be directed by Anees Bazmee and is produced by SPNP and Ashwin Varde and Murad Khetani’s Cine1 Studios. The film has been written by Balli Januja and Rupinder Chahal and is all set to go on the floors by November 2016. It is slated for a 28 July 2017 release.

Bazmee said, “Mubarakan is one of the best scripts I’ve come across in recent times. That’s what attracted me to it primarily. The highlight of the film will be Anil Kapoor and Arjun Kapoor coming together for the first time on screen. The madness of the script along with the fantastic ensemble cast, we are all set to create something that will be unparalleled.”

Bazmee has to its credit an array of movies directed by him like last film Welcome Back, Ready, etc.
