The film titled "Mubaraka" was to be helmed by Milap Zaveri but things did not work out and the producer Murad Khetani of "Shaukeens" fame roped in Bazmee to direct the movie.
The makers feel it would be a treat to the audience to present the duo in this way on the screen too.
"In the film, Anil and Arjun will be playing 'chacha-bhatija'. Both share a great camaraderie off screen and we are hopeful that the audience will like their on screen jodi as well," a source said.
Presently, the makers are busy finalising other cast members.
The "Welcome Back" helmer is already re-working on the script with his team of writers.
"It's a family entertainer. The film has elements of comedy, drama, romance etc," the insider added.
Anil has worked with Bazmee in movies like "No Entry", "Welcome", "Welcome Back" while its for the first time that the "Ishaqzaade" actor will team up with him.
Currently, Arjun is shooting for "Half Girlfriend" while the "Ram Lakhan" star is busy with his TV show "24".
