To this, Arjun responded, “Yes, definitely! July 28 is my wedding. You all can visit your nearby cinema hall to attend it. My wedding is happening twice, with two different girls. So come and check, who is marrying whom,” referring to his upcoming movie.



Mubarakan the first time that Arjun and Anil share screen space together. Asked about his excitement and nervousness ahead the release, Arjun said, “I am not nervous or excited as it’s too early. At the moment, I am enjoying this phase a lot because though I will continue spending my time with him (Anil), to spend time with you all (media) and him together is something which will remain forever in my memory and I will cherish these moments lifetime.”

He continued, “I will have this for posterity as somebody who has grown up in front of him and looked forward to working with him. All these photographs and bytes are priceless because this kind of opportunity comes to very few people.”

I’m obviously not in competition with my family: Arjun Kapoor

Speaking about the film, Anil added, “Mubarakan is a family film. Arjun, Ileana and Athiya are doing some mad things and confusion in the film so it is going to get appreciated by youth and because of that, the youth will have to watch me as well.”
