Barfee is Ranbir Kapoor’s next film with Priyanka Chopra. It is being directed by Anurag Basu, produced by Ronnie Screwvala and has music by Pritam. Sounds like a great set up, despite Ranbir and Priyanka’s last outing (Anjaana
Anjaani) not setting the box office alight.
It was previously reported that Ranbir was playing a deaf-mute character, whilst Priyanka will play the role of an autistic girl and that the film was a romantic murder mystery.
Well, Ranbir has now gone on record to clear the misconception claiming that: “Barfee is a fun, happy go lucky, children friendly film. People have a wrong perception that it’s a serious film but it’s not true at all. The backdrop is of a love story and I feel that children will really like the film.” Ranbir also revealed that the film was a romcom and set in the 70s.
Barfee is 50% complete and is scheduled for release in May 2012.
