Get `Besharam` this week

New Delhi: With no other big films releasing this Friday, Abhinav Kashyap`s `Besharam` has a clean week as far as competition goes. The Ranbir Kapoor-starrer is hitting theatres Oct 2.

The film will be a litmus test for both actor Ranbir after superhit `Yeh Jawaani Hai Deewani` and Kashyap post `Dabangg`.

"Our expectations are huge. We have made a good film and have promoted it well," Kahsyap said.

The film, produced by Himanshu Mehra, Sanjeev Gupta and Reliance Entertainment, had a shooting budget of Rs.60 crore plus the cost of promotions, marketing and advertising.

"We have locked about 3,600 screens in India and 700 screens overseas," said the director.

Whether the audience will accept Ranbir in deglam role or not, will only be revealed once the movie releases.

"It is a big film and there is no other film releasing in the same week. We have to wait and watch how it unfolds and whether the audience likes it or not," trade analyst Taran Adarsh.

`Besharam` also stars Ranbir`s actor-parents Rishi Kapoor and Neetu Singh. Actress Pallavi Sharda, a newcomer who hails from Australia, plays the female lead in the film.
