MUMBAI: Ranbir Kapoor, who is on cloud nine after the success of “Yeh Jawaani Hai Deewani”, is leaving no stone unturned to give his best in “Besharam”. The Bollywood heartthrob is polishing his Punjabi diction for the comedy.
“They are shooting a lot in Chandigarh, so Ranbir has been learning the language. It is crucial for his character, so a tutor has been hired. He’s been practising to speak like the locals there – in terms of usage of words and their pronunciations,” said a source.
“Besharam”, directed by Abhinav Kashyap, also features Ranbir’s parents — Neetu Singh and Rishi Kapoor — along with Pallavi Sharda. It is set for an Oct 2 release.
“Since YJHD has released and become a huge success, he’s relaxed and at ease. ‘Besharam’ will be his most massy film so far, and it’ll have him sharing screen space with his parents for the first time. Even when the film’s poster was released, it generated a lot of curiosity,” the source added.
