G iving them a tough competition were the film's two leading ladies Ileana D'Cruz and Athiya Shetty. who too showed off their boxing skills to a screaming crowd.
Anil Kapoor was clearly the crowd's favourite as the entire auditorium got to its feet when the veteran actor walked inside the ring to the Mubarakan soundtrack. When theorganizers requested Anil and Arjun to 'face off' against each other in a mock boxing match, Arjun responded, "I guess that match C would be over before it even begins. How can anybody stand up to this legend?" As the emcee asked who would win in a fight between Ileana and Athiya, Arjun quipped, "Ab Suniel Shetty la beti hai toh the pressure must be on Athiya more. Inko toh jeetna hi padega." Talking about the event Ileana said, "It's great atmosphere and I loved the crowd's enthusiasm."
