While Anil and Arshad have been given the task of tickling the funny bones of audience, John and Ileana will set the screen of fire with their romance. Pagalpanti, as the name suggests, is an out-and-out comedy and will be shot in London and Leeds over 50 days. There will also be a second lead heroine, who is yet to be cast, reported Mumbai Mirror. Director Anees has been on a recce in the UK since past few days.
John and Anil have previously worked together in 2015 film Welcome Back, which failed to impress audience and critics alike. Anees's last film was Mubarakan, which featured Arjun Kapoor in double role along with Athiya Shetty, Anil Kapoor and Ileana D'Cruz.
