Arjun Kapoor and his Mubarakan leading ladies Ileana Dcruz and Athiya Shetty kicked off the New Year with extensive rehearsals with choreographers Bosco Martis and Remo D’souza for two songs which were filmed back-to-back. One of them, a fun and flirty dance number featuring Arjun and Ileana, was shot at Film City last week, on a busy road crowded with trucks.

The other was being picturised on Tuesday at a Mumbai studio with the chacha-bhatija duo, Anil Kapoor and Arjun Kapoor.

The 60-year-old actor recently joined the rehearsals, and according to a source close to the development, had insisted on being a part of a lavish wedding song being choreographed by Remo. Director Anees Bazmee who was on the scene admitted that he is “fully charged as he hasn’t danced onscreen since a long time”. He went on to inform that there were a lot of dancers and the set was buzzing. “Anil is dressed up to look like a Sikh as it’s a big fat Punjabi wedding. Even for the rehearsals he’d come in his full getup and practise his steps diligently. He is super excited. He has his own style of dance and that is something to look forward to besides the fact that you will see Anil and Arjun together on screen for the first time,” he points out.

The wedding comedy also features Neha Sharma and Ratna Pathak Shah. The London schedule kicks off in February.
