‘Rock Star’ of Bollywood Ranbir Kapoor this time is keen on showcasing his ultimate acting talent with his sweet ‘Barfee’ to his fans and movie lovers. He is becoming dumb in his role disappointing his fans who feel though the movie is named after a sweet, it is turning sour for them. But Ranbir assures that his role in ‘Barfee’ will not make his fans sour but leave them in splits of laughter. He is playing a small time crook in the film and director Anurag Basu is using all his creative abilities as director to shoot the scenes in an innovative manner. The film is presently shooting in thickly populated Kolkota. Many onlookers and locales are left in awe as the film unit is not canning any ordinary scenes but some high voltage action sequences and breathtaking chasing incidents. This resulted in huge fans mobbing Ranbir Kapoor in areas like Phool Market, Mullick Ghat, Old Tram Station, Dorjipada near Hathi Bagan (all in north Kolkata) and Laha Badi in Central Avenue (in central Kolkata).
Many alaysts feel thanks to Anurag Basu,even this ‘Rock Star’ is becoming ‘Guerrilla Star’ taking joining the bandwagon of Amir Khan and Salman Khan. A source from the film unit say “Anurag didn’t want to invite unwanted attention. Plus, clearing crowded bylanes and roads in Kolkata wouldn’t have been an easy job. So, by employing the guerrilla filmmaking style, he served the dual purpose,”. Director Anurag Basu and Ranbir Kapoor to get natural spontaneous reactions from crowd used hidden cameras with Ranbir extremely elagant in his natural acting. All this left thousands stunned as Ranbir effectively eloped from strict vigilance of the cops. Direcot Anurag Basu said even Ranbir was very much excited to do the spying acting without the knowledge of the crowd. ‘Barfee’ is produced by UTV motion pictures that feature stunning beauties Priyanka Chopra and Ileana D Cruz romancing Ranbir. Priyanka will be seen as a mentally challenged girl. The movie is slated for July 13th release.
