Way back in 1987, Anil Kapoor and Amrita Singh shared screen space in 'Thikana'. Four decades later, the two actors will be seen together in Anees Bazmee's 'Mubarakan' but this time they will be playing siblings.
Anil confirmed the development to a leading daily and was quoted saying, “If you truly ask me, I am scared of working with Amrita. She knows many secrets of mine and is extremely honest and moohfat (forthright). I am petrified of her because I feel that once we start shooting, she will come and expose all my secrets! Mere bhanje Arjun (Kapoor) ke saamne meri puri pol khol degi Amrita.”
He further said that they are like chalk and cheese adding, “I guess that’s the reason we got along so well. Don’t they say opposites become friends? Each and every day, working with her was entertaining and lots of fun. She is great fun to be on the sets. I remember that her mother Rukhsana Sultana (a political activist and a renowned socialite) was very fond of me. She is no more, may her soul rest in peace.”
'Mubarakan' stars Arjun Kapoor, Athiya Shetty and Ileana D'Cruz.
