Arjun Kapoor, who is currently shooting for Anees Bazmee's upcoming film Mubarakan, shot in a Gurudwara for the first time for a film and it was a unique experience for the actor to shoot in such a serene place.
An elated Arjun Kapoor shared, "As actors, we go to wherever our work takes us. We shoot in different parts of the world and every place has its own vibe and energy. It's a first for me that I have shot at a religious place. For Mubarkan I happen to shoot in a Gurudwara in Chandigarh. Shooting is generally a chaotic process but the minute I stepped inside a Gurudwara, it took me away from all my worries. All the time that I spent there, I felt a certain kind of enlightenment and was at peace". Post shooting, Arjun alongwith his Mubarakan team indulged in some amazing langar food in the Gurudwara.
Arjun, who has been born and brought up in a Punjabi family, will be seen playing a Punjabi in the movie for the first time. Before he started shooting, the makers wanted to ensure that he got his authentic Punjabi accent bang-on. For this, a dialect coach was organised for him so that he would get all his nuances right. After two days, the coach felt that he was so proficient with his accent that he didn't need the coaching anymore. Produced by Sony Pictures Networks Productions, Murad Khetani's Cine 1 Studios and Ashwin Varde, Mubarakan also features his uncle Anil Kapoor, Neha Sharma, Athiya Shetty and Ileana D'Cruz. The movie is slated to release on July 28, 2017.
