Mumbai: Ranbir Kapoor’s ‘Besharam’ trailers may have miffed fans of Salman Khan and Shah Rukh Khan, but the young lad is all set to deliver his first masala pop entertainment movie.
Ranbir has till now been starring in movies that have been either romance or drama and he has been widely appreciated for his chocolate boy appeal. His movies ‘Rockstar’ and ‘Barfi!’ also won him two consecutive Filmfare Best Actor Awards.
However with ‘Besharam’, Ranbir aims to break that stereotype and make a ‘Dabangg’ style entertainer with director Abhinav Kashyap.
Rishi Kapoor confirmed to DNA, “It is our family’s out-and-out commercial entertainer. Very much in the ‘Dabangg’ and ‘Rowdy Rathod’ genre of entertainment.”
A source close to ‘Besharam’ predicts that the film would be Ranbir’s biggest blockbuster to date. “We expect it to be bigger than ‘Yeh Jawani Hai Deewani’. It’s Ranbir’s most massy film to date. Full-on time-pass.”
Besides Ranbir Kapoor playing a con man on the run, ‘Besharam’ also marks the debut of Pallavi Sharda and stars veterans Rishi Kapoor and Neetu Kapoor. The movie is going to hit the silver screen on October 2.
