‘Rockstar’ released; Anurag Basu’s ‘Barfee’ can now take off
Mumbai: No one would be happier than director Anurag Basu to see the release of Ranbir Kapoor’s ‘Rockstar’ as he can now start shooting for his ‘Barfee’.
Imtiaz Ali directed ‘Rockstar’ has opened with lots of praise for Ranbir`s peformance.
"Ab bas ho gaya. `Rockstar` will release Friday and then my last big schedule for `Barfee` will start from November 15 in Kerala and Ooty. I don`t mind waiting. Ranbir had very clearly told me he`d need time off in October and November to promote `Rockstar`. The film is worth all the delays in the `Barfee` schedule. And it isn`t as if we`ve been making `Barfee` forever," said Basu.
To be produce by UTV, ‘Barfee’ also stars Priyanka Chopra.
‘Murder’, ‘Gangster - A Love Story’ and ‘Life in a...Metro’ are some of the well-known films made by Basu who didn`t watch ‘Rockstar’ preview.
"I`m superstitious about watching any film before release. I recently saw two films before their release that I loved. I thought they would be sure hits. On release they bombed. I`ve decided to stay away from ‘Rockstar’...," said the director who plans to watch the film now.
