Bollywood actor Arjun Kapoor, who is currently busy shooting for his upcoming movie 'Mubarakan', introduced one of the female leads of the movie - Ileana D'Cruz.
Ileana will be seen playing the role of Sweety in the movie.
Arjun took it to Instagram to share his first picture with co-star Ileana from the sets of 'Mubarakan'.
Both Arjun and Ileana look uber cool in casual attires and were all smiles as they posed together.
Arjun captioned the image as, "Let the madness continue !!! Smiles galore Karan and sweety aka @ileana_official and me !!! #Mubarakan".
Interestingly, this is the first time Ileana will be sharing the screen space Arjun Kapoor and the two are said to be sharing a great bond off screen.
Talking about working with Ileana, Arjun was all praises for the 'Rustom' actress.
"I had met her when I went to watch Barfi and I was blown away by her performance and even then jokingly I had mentioned that we'll end up working together some day. Little did I know that it will happen so soon and I am very happy it happened for a film like Mubarakan because it's a fun film," Arjun told a leading daily.
"While shooting with her I discovered how funny and easy going she is, and also how serious and experienced she is as an actor. She has done a lot of work in South Indian films. Yet she still isn't embroiled or caught up in the web of running the rat race, It genuinely was a refreshing change for me to meet somebody who has been here , achieved so much, and is still so relaxed, that is an amazing quality to have. I did end up joking with her about being the first Goan to play a Punjabi, primarily because she is always worried about her Hindi, but she manages so well in front of the camera, that nobody can figure that out," he added.
On the other hand, Ileana also stated that it was great with Arjun as he made her feel completely comfortable on the sets.
"This film requires us to have that ease with each other, we need to look like we've known each other for a while and we hit it off right from the beginning I blame it on the mutual love for Punjabi food," Ileana was quoted as saying.
Apart from Arjun and Ileana, 'Mubarakan' also stars Athiya Shetty, Neha Sharma, Ratna Pathak and veteran actor Anil Kapoor, who will be reprising his real-life relation with 'Ishaqzaade' actor on the silver screen.
Helmed by Anees Bazmee, 'Mubarakaan' is slated to release on July 28 next year.
