Ileana D'Cruz sported a pink pastel pantsuit with a bralette and with minimal make-up she looked pretty as she posed for the photographers.
The word Pagalpanti itself gives away the genre of this film - comedy. This madcap film boasts of an ensemble cast of John Abraham, Arshad Warsi, Saurabh Shukla, and a few others. With a combination of these three fine artists, it is surely a laugh riot.
Anil Kapoor talks about working with Anees Bazmee said, one doesn't have to be a funny person to do comedy. "Anees is a serious person, but internally, there's a funny bone in him. A lot of people are funny in real life but that can't be translated into comedy," he added.

However, what irks him is the "comedy is a serious business" statement used by many artistes. "I think that also has become a cliche now. Everything is a serious business if you're in this profession. If you don't love your work, you're not serious. When to do a scene seriously and when in the comic way, that's your craft. The dialogue delivery and its pitch and tone, you have to understand that," he said.
Kriti Kharbanda talking about doing back to back comedies said, "A lot of people ask me that I've done three comedy movies now. Anil (Kapoor) sir must've done 30 different comedies but you never feel he's repeating himself. They may typecast you as someone who only does comedies but the bigger challenge arises when you're given three comical characters and you have to make each one different," Kriti told PTI. "It's going to help me grow as an actor. Go ahead, typecast, I don't have any issue. Everyone who's looked at being typecast negatively, you've been challenged to outdo your own previous performance. That's the best kind of competition when you're competing with yourself," she added.
