Actor James Marsden says working on 27 Dresses (2008) was like a celebration for him. The 44-year-old actor said he shared a great tuning with the female lead, Katherine Heigl, which was instrumental in the film's popularity.
The film recently completed 10 years and Heigl had said working on the film felt like a college experience to her. "You never know what to expect going into a film. That you can see different personalities and different egos. But everybody had a great time. I think the audience just picks up on that. Katie and I fed off each other's energies and had this chemistry," Marsden said in New Delhi yesterday as the global ambassador of International Scotch Day.

The actor said the famous Bennie and The Jets scene, where his and Heigl's characters get drunk in a bar and sing the hit Elton John number at the top of their voices was a special scene from the Anne Fletcher-directed romcom.
"The Bennie and the Jets scene was the final one that we shot. So we were kind of celebrating the finishing the film as well. That kind of came through. It was a lot of camaraderie on that one and that's not always the case," he said.
