“At least we will try,” added the actor, who was present on the sets of singing based reality show ‘Sa Re Ga Ma Pa Lil champs’ here.

To this, Arjun responded: “Yes, definitely! July 28 is my wedding. You all can visit your nearby cinema hall to attend my wedding (referring to his film ‘Mubarakan’), which is happening twice with two different girls. So come and check, who is marrying whom.”

This is be the first time that Arjun and Anil are sharing screen space together.

Asked about his excitement and nervousness ahead the release of his film, Arjun said: “I am not nervous or excited as it’s too early.”

“At the moment I am enjoying this phase a lot because though I will continue spending my time with him (Anil), to spend time with you all (media) and with him together, is something which will remain forever in my memory and I will cherish these moments lifetime.”

He added: “I will have this for posterity as somebody who has grown up in front of him and looked forward to work with him. All these photographs and bytes are priceless because this kind of opportunity comes to very few people in family to do same profession and work together.”
