We are back to keep up our promise of telling you about the balance cast of Anees Bazmee’s film starring Anil Kapoor and Arjun Kapoor. Well, it’s obviously the heroine we are going to talk about and we won’t give you a prize if you’ve guessed that this film will have 2 heroines.

We told you a little while ago that Arjun will essay a double role in this film, so it’s not difficult to imagine that there are two vacant slots opposite him. If all goes well, Suniel Shetty’s daughter Athiya who made a debut in the remake of Hero (produced by Salman Khan and directed by Nikhil Advani) will occupy one of those slots.

This could be a smashing comeback for Athiya who was out in the cold after her first splash in Bollywood tanked at the box-office. Arjun had denied that he was romantically involved with Athiya, when he said, “Athiya is my sister’s (Anshula) friend. People forget that you can have friends in the industry and that is a normal thing. I have known her for many years.”

Back to the film. As we told you, it’s the story of two Arjun Kapoors (brothers) and their Chacha Anil Kapoor. What’s interesting here is that Arjun and Athiya got linked up recently. So, it would be interesting to watch their chemistry on screen.
