Riteish & Pulkit fight in ‘Qubool Hai’ episode celebrating Eid


Bollywood actors Riteish Deshmukh and Pulkit Samrat who visited the sets of singing reality show ‘The Voice India’ to promote their upcoming film ‘Bangistan’ will also be seen endorsing the comedy satire on television drama series ‘Qubool Hai’.

The duo will be seen fighting over sweets in the ‘Rangat-e-Eid episode’ of the soap which is being aired on Zee TV. Actress Surbhi Jyoti, who plays the role of Jannat in the popular series, said it was “fun shooting with the two stars.”

“Riteish forgot his lines in the midst of an intense sweet-snatching scene and asked ‘What is the line?’ in the middle of a shot, which actually made all of us burst out laughing,” the actress said in a statement.

In the episode celebrating Eid, Jannat will be seen serving sweets to the guests and when only one piece is left Riteish and Pulkit start fighting over it. Their fight escalates to such a level that they both threaten to kill each other.

Riteish and Pulkit play the role of two suicide bombers - Hafeez Bin Ali alias Ishwarchand Sharma and Allah Rakha Khan alias Praveen Chaturvedi respectively - who have been brainwashed into an explosive mission in the fictional land of Bangistan.

‘Bangistan’ which was supposed to be released on July 31, has deferred the date to August 7 in view of the extraordinary box office performance of ‘Baahubali’ and Salman Khan’s ‘Bajrangi Bhaijaan’.
