Arjun Kapoor talks about reuniting with uncle Anil Kapoor for a brand commercial after their comic caper 'Mubarakan'
Anil and Arjun Kapoor in the ad
Almost four years after tickling our funny bone in 'Mubarakan' (2017), Anil Kapoor and actor-nephew Arjun Kapoor have reunited for a commercial. The duo, who are endorsing a meat and seafood company, shot for the ad at a suburban studio in March, weeks before the city went into a lockdown.
“It is a hilarious, tongue-in-cheek ad that will highlight the relationship I share with my uncle,” begins Arjun, who is seen engaging in a game of one-upmanship with the senior actor as they try to whip up a delicious meal. For Arjun, it’s a matter of joy to team up with Kapoor senior, whom he considers among the finest artistes of contemporary Hindi cinema. He says their real-life camaraderie makes them a delight on screen. “We are like friends in real life and are constantly pulling each other’s leg.”
After the success of the Anees Bazmee-directed 'Mubarakan', rumours about a second instalment abounded. Quiz the actor about reuniting with Anil for a possible sequel, and he says, “We are a tag team of entertainment. Filmmakers should explore our camaraderie because we can make people smile. You just have to throw us in a room, say action and see the madness unfold.”
