JUST IN! Ranbir Kapoor in Barfi poster
Ranbir Kapoor's Barfi trailer has already created waves across the web. The actor seems to have given a strong performance in the film. Now a poster from the film is all set to release tomorrow. Here's a look
Barfi actors Ranbir Kapoor and Priyanka Chopra play deaf-and-mute and autistic
characters respectively, but they insist that the film is not about disability.
The romantic comedy directed by Anurag Basu, revolves around a boy named Murphy (Ranbir), whom everyone calls Barfi. Always ready with a prank up his sleeve, he is quite the charmer even though he can neither speak nor listen. While Jhilmil (Priyanka) plays an autistic character in the film. The film also stars South star Ileana D'Cruz who's making her debut in Bollywood with the film.
"I would say that one should not associate this film with disability...this film is not about disability. It is a coincidence that these two characters are deaf, mute and one is autistic. But one will not feel that it is a disability film. Its about enjoying life, giving happiness, feeling love. Its a love story," Ranbir had earlier said.
"When we meet differently-abled people, or people who are special, we have a view point that they have a dark, sorrowful life we feel bad for them, it is not a film about that. There are people who smile, laugh, fall in love, enjoy..its that side of their life. So it is not about disability," said Priyanka.
Barfi is set to release on September 14, 2012.
