'The Goggle Song' from Mubarakan has been released, and it takes us bang into the centerfold of every single Punjabi wedding ever, the only exception being that every member in attendance is wearing goggles.
The song sees Anil Kapoor hopping around excitedly as he grooves to a cliched song with beats and a chorus that we've heard plenty of times before.
Athiya Shetty is as stiff as ever in the music video (though not for the lack of trying). For some reason, Ileana D'Cruz (the other leading lady of the movie) is not so hard to look at, as her screen presence still has some amount of gracefulness attached to it.
Following true to Mubarakan tradition, Anil Kapoor takes centerstage a couple of times in 'The Goggle Song', and in our opinion he is the person that brings the fun element to the entire song. We also see Arjun Kapoor parading around in his double role as he stomps around to the beat of the song.
Although not a particularly catchy number, one can expect 'The Goggle Song' to be played at least twice per wedding.
Mubarakan will see Arjun share screen space with his uncle Anil Kapoor as the two will play bhatija-chacha or nephew-uncle in the film as well. The poster shows Anil, who plays a Sardar, resting in arms of Arjun's characters as the young actor plays a double role in the film. While one looks like Arjun from Half Girlfriend, the other one sports a new turbaned look.
The film also stars Athiya Shetty and Ileana D'Cruz who will be paired opposite the two characters of Arjun respectively. It also stars Ratna Pathak Shah in the capacity of Arjun's mother, a role which was initially offered to veteran actor Amrita Singh following their popular mother-son rapport in Abhishek Varman's 2014 romantic comedy 2 States.
The film also stars Neha Sharma, Karan Kundra and Rahul Dev in pivotal roles. It has been produced by Sony Pictures Network Productions and has been extensively shot in London and Punjab.
Arjun, who has done a double role in Aurangzeb previously, while speaking to Firstpost about his experience shooting his double role for Mubarakan said that the entire affair was quite different this time given that the two characters had to share the frame in most of the scenes and the fact that there was an ensemble cast along with him.
The movie is slated to release on 28 July.
