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 Mubarakan, I happened to shoot in a Gurdwara in Chandigarh. Shooting is generally a chaotic process but the minute I stepped inside a Gurdwara, 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.”
Before Arjun started shooting, the makers wanted to ensure that he got his authentic Punjabi accent bang-on as he is playing a Punjabi in the film. Hence a dialect coach was organised for him so that he would get all his nuances right. After two days of coaching, the coach felt that he was so proficient with his accent that he didn’t need the coaching anymore.
It was a unique experience for the actor to shoot in such a serene place like the Gurdwara.
Mubarakan, produced by Sony Pictures Networks Productions, Murad Khetani’s Cine1 Studios and Ashwin Varde, will be releasing on July 28, 2017.
