For its first time in his career, Arjun Kapoor is all set to don the cap of a tough Delhi cop in his tenth film, ‘Sandeep Aur Pinky Faraar’. The ‘Mubarakan’ actor took to his Twitter handle to share the first look of his film. He wrote, “10th film 1 truth…Change is the only constant. Can’t wait to begin filming this one #SandeepAurPinkyFaraar.” Arjun looks fearless as a Delhi cop, with every detail taken of a cop into consideration.

Giving some insight into the film, Arjun told PTI, “The film has a realistic texture so I had to spend time connecting with the world the film is set in. Dibakar (Arjun’s cop character) is clear about what he wants. I’ve given the same number of days for preparation as much I’ve given for the shoot. He wanted that from the beginning.”

The film features Parineeti Chopra alongside Arjun. What makes this pairing unique, is that they made their together with ‘Ishaqzaade’ and their sizzling chemistry, the film, was loved and appreciated from all corners. ‘Namastey Canada’ will be the pair’s third outing.

A Yash Raj Film, ‘Sandeep Aur Pinky Faraar’ revolves around a man and woman hailing from different cultural backgrounds and their bitter-sweet relationship. The film is slated to release on August 3, 2018.

Social media is a weird place. On one hand, you’ll see people wax eloquent about morals and ethics, and so on, and on the other hand, these are the same people who often forget that there are limits to what one can say.

It has now become a trend for trolls to pass absurd comments every now and then. Look, we totally support ‘freedom of speech’ but how about people understanding that there is a fine line between expressing yourself and writing ridiculous statements online.

And once again, social media has given us a great example of how expressing an opinion can go wrong on so many levels.

A troll abused Arjun Kapoor and called him a rapist, criminal and a creep. Now, do you get what we are talking about? This kind of slander is absolutely not acceptable.

Obviously, this would have made anyone in their right mind rather angry, but Arjun decided to give back to the hater in an eloquent and graceful manner.

A few days ago, while talking to a leading daily, he said, “First of all, social media has no bearing of male or female. It acts as a kick for people, who get pleasure out of hiding behind a keyboard. There is no binary in the trolling happening — males troll females and vice versa. I find it appalling, but that is society. It is shameful, but the reality is that trolling exists. You will never be able to stop it, unfortunately, because that is the power of social media. You can say what you want to and get away with it. This can’t be called a violation, as it’s everyone’s freedom of speech.”

He tweeted out, “This is an all-time low at trolling I feel…a woman, a girl shamelessly and causally using the term rapist isn’t trolling its saddening.”

Isn’t that reply just spot on? The girl has now deleted her tweet, and maybe she realised it was wrong of her to use those words. You can absolutely dislike someone, but please watch what you say in this day and age.

Randomly calling a guy a rapist hurts everyone the same way you casually call a girl a whore or a slut. It’s the same thing, so please stop it!

With both of his upcoming films featuring Parineeti Chopra as co-star, Arjun Kapoor quipped he is prepared to handle the link-up rumours with the actor.

Arjun Kapoor

Arjun, who debuted opposite Parineeti in “Ishaqzaade”, is reteaming with her on two projects – “Sandeep Aur Pinky Faraar” and “Namastey Canada”.

“We are working in two films. First in ‘Sandeep aur Pinky Faraar’ and then, whether you’re satisfied or not, we will come together in ‘Namestey Canada’ as well. So next year, I am going to be linked-up only with Parineeti because I would be working only with her,” Arjun joked.

The actor was speaking on the sidelines of the launch of new Audi 5 range here last night.

Directed by Dibakar Banerjee, “Sandeep Aur…” is a story of two people who represent two completely different groups of Indians.

Arjun said he is busy preparing for the film and is spending time with the director to understand his character better.

“I am neck-deep in the prep for the film. I was in Delhi for a bit, I’ve been travelling with him, getting into the skin of the character. The film has a realistic texture so I had to spend time connecting with the world the film is set in.

“Dibakar is clear about what he wants. I’ve given same number of days for prep as much I’ve given for the shoot. He wanted that from the beginning.”

Arjun was also asked about his reaction to the posters of “Padmavati”, which stars his friends, Ranveer Singh, Deepika Padukone and Shahid Kapoor.

“Sanjay Leela Bhansali is a fantastic director. Because of him, somewhere we still have ‘big screen’ experience films.

“He is the filmmaker who gives you that scale and look in a film which compels you to go to the theatres. The characters are real yet larger than life,” he said.

The actor said besides Deepika-Ranveer, it will be interesting to watch Shahid in the film.

“I am excited. I know Ranveer and Deepika have a fantastic tuning with Bhansali sir. I am equally excited to watch Shahid in a film. After a long time, we have a two hero film,” he said.

Arjun Kapoor and Anil Kapoor

As Arjun Kapoor’s comic caper, Mubarakan, continues to win accolades from moviegoers, murmurs about Anil Kapoor outshining the actor continue to grow louder. This turn of events is rather interesting, given that Arjun plays a twin role in the film, which paired him alongside his uncle for the first time.

But Arjun Kapoor argues that director Anees Bazmee always wanted the spotlight to be on the senior actor. “It was how the film was designed,” he says, adding, “On paper, his role was meant to be funnier. He is supposed to be the one with better dialogues, punchlines and humour. My characters, on the other hand, create conflict. Isn’t it obvious that he will have a better part? He is the comedy factor.” Pointing out that the senior actor has several years of experience to his credit, Arjun says pitting him against the veteran is unfair. “His body of work is exemplary. I chose to do this film because he was a part of it. I worked with Anees and Anil to learn, evolve and mostly enjoy [myself]. My only job was to do my role well.”

The actor laments that despite being treated to a good film, people wish to enquire about a brewing animosity. “Who is jealous of their own chachu? It’s ridiculous. But I take this with a pinch of salt,” he says, asserting he is happy that film critics have appreciated his work. “I did not do this film to outshine him.”

Anees Bazamee is back this time with another comedy film ‘Mubarakan' and people are very excited for it. After all, he has given us some of the best comedy films that we can watch over and over again. His latest film like his previous ones looks like an entertainment-packed drama starring Anil Kapoor, Arjun Kapoor, Ileana D'cruz and Athiya Shetty, slated to hit the screens on 28th July, 2017. And here are few reasons why you should watch this film.

A Good Family Entertainer

The year 2017 hasn't started on a good note for Bollywood films. There is hardly a film that was released this year that could be called as a family entertainer. And for how long can we keep obsessing over 'Baahubali 2'? We hope 'Mubarakan' sets the record straight!

It is for the first time that we will get to see real life 'chacha-bhatija' Jodi of Anil Kapoor and Arjun Kapoor making an appearance on screen. They both portray the same relation even in the film, so it goes without saying that we will get to see their real chemistry and bond which makes us all excited to see Anil and Arjun together.

From giving us films like 'No Entry', 'Welcome', 'Ready' and 'Singh is King', Anees Bazmee is one of those directors who surely knows how to tickle your funny bone. Every film he has made has been loved by the viewers, well you might not be a very big fan of his but he totally makes you laugh. And looking at the trailer of his latest film, it looks like Mubarakan will be a good watch too.

Going by the track record, for every film that Anil and Anees has collaborated together, it has been loved by the viewers. How can one forget Anil Kapoor's character in 'No Entry' and 'Welcome'? You can watch these films anytime without getting bored. And now we can expect the same from this duo in 'Mubarakan' as well.

Double Role Hit Formula

It is a noted trend in Bollywood that we love a film where actors are seen in a double role. From 'Sita Aur Geeta', 'Chalbaaz' to 'Judwaa', every film has proven to win our hearts. In 'Mubarakan' too, Arjun Kapoor will be seen as Karanveer Singh and Charanveer Singh, giving us a double dose of him. Watch the trailer and it will be difficult for you to pick who is your favourite.

A Complete Package

Going by the trailers of the film, it wouldn't be wrong to say that the whole star-cast is all set to take your blues away and leave you in splits. From exotic locations, one liners, comic scenes of Anil Kapoor to songs, this film has every ingredient to prove to be a completely entertaining film.

Well, it goes without saying that when Chacha-Bhatija Anil Kapoor and Arjun Kapoor share screen space together, something epic is bound to happen. And as expected, that’s exactly what you witness in the latest trailer for their upcoming movie ‘Mubarakan’.

Amazing Anil Kapoor introduces us to his crazy Punjabi family. And we just can’t wait to see their impeccable comic timing on the 70mm screen. After watching this latest trailer of Anees Bazmee’s film, we are convinced that this will be one hell of a movie that will lead to a laughter riot. After all, what less can we expect from the director who has given us films like ‘No Entry’, ‘Welcome’ and ‘Singh Is King’?

Coming back to the trailer, we really loved how Anil Kapoor keeps laughing at his own jokes, making you laugh despite the fact that those jokes are not that funny. But then that’s an art, right? Arjun’s characters Karan and Charan are both remarkable and we can’t figure out yet who is our favourite.

Well, the trailer also introduces us to gorgeous Neha Sharma, who will be seen playing Charan’s girlfriend. However, soon we will see him falling head over heels in love with Athiya.

The film is supposed to release on July 28th and we will finally meet this crazy-mad family.

What do you think happens when you listen to peppy lyrics like, “Jatt Jaguar utte beh ke….Aaya sohni sohni kudiyan nu leke.” It’s bound to get stuck in your head and you just can’t get over it. That’s exactly what Mubarakan’s new song ‘Jatt Jaguar’ is all about.

The makers released the latest dance number from the film and as one can expect from Anees Bazmee’s film, this song just like his previous film will get you in a dancing mood. The beats of the song are peppy, giving you major desi feels that you just can’t help but groove to this number.

The song features Arjun Kapoor displaying his utter Punjabiness on screen. Sung by Vishal Dadlani, Apeksha Dandekar and Navraj Hans, the song is quirky. Amaal Malik’s music and Kumaar’s lyrics add the perfect Punjabi swag to the song. We wouldn’t be surprised if this becomes the wedding song of the year.

Watching the song on-screen is fun too, Arjun Kapoor can be seen in both his avatar Karan and Charan and it’s difficult to pick whom we like more. And don’t miss to watch Illeana in the song as well. The film also stars Anil Kapoor and Athiya Shetty and is set to release on28th July.

Till then, check out the song right here and let know us if you loved it too!

If the industry grapevine is to be believed, Arjun Kapoor will step into Akshay Kumar’s shoes in Vipul Amrutlal Shah’s Namastey England, a sequel to the Katrina Kaif and Khiladi-starrer Namaste London (2007).

The filmmaker is keen to roll the long-in-the planning project. Akki has a busy date diary and there is no way he can take on another film. Also, given his off-late penchant for slice-of-life films, a romantic drama may not be up his street.

Anil Kapoor with Arjun KapoorAnil Kapoor and Arjun Kapoor

Actor-producer Anil Kapoor felt that Arjun Kapoor should do their forthcoming film ‘Mubarakan’ as he believes that the young actor,
also his nephew, has the capability to pull off such difficult roles. Arjun will be seen in a double role in ‘Mubarakan’, which also stars Anil.

“When I first heard the script, I strongly felt that Arjun Kapoor should do this film. I felt he is the right actor for this script. I picked up the phone and asked him to hear the subject once and take a decision himself. He has the capability to pull off such difficult roles and I’m happy that after listening to the script he decided to do this film,” Anil Kapoor said in a statement.

‘Mubarakan’ also starring Ileana D’cruz and Athiya Shetty is produced by Sony Pictures Networks Productions and Ashwin Varde and Murad Khetani’s Cine1 Studios and is slated to have its worldwide release on July 28.

Parineeti Chopra surely knows how to attract attention. The Ishaqzaade actress did everything possible to explain about her New Year’s Eve performance near Lonavla with her animated gestures

This includes displaying her muscles (above) and the talcum powder in her underarms. At one stage during the event, Parineeti appeared to have developed a sudden pain in her leg (left). Her Ishaqzaade co-star Arjun Kapoor could not help but stare! Phew!
