Ranbir Kapoor’s ‘Besharam’ Stays Clear Of Big Releases


MUMBAI: Even with big hits in the Rs 100 crore club, like ‘Barfi!’ and ‘Yeh Jawaani Hai Deewani’, Ranbir Kapoor is still choosing to stay clear of films starring Shah Rukh Khan and Akshay Kumar.


Initially, the makers of ‘Besharam’ had planned that the trailer of Ranbir Kapoor’s next film directed by Abhinav Kashyap would be released with either ‘Chennai Express’ or ‘Once Upon A Time In Mumbai Dobaara’. (These release on 9 August and 15 August respectively.)

But now, after Ranbir Kapoor pitched in with his experience, the entire team has decided to avoid the clash between the two films and release the trailer before any of them come out in theaters.

This happened because Ranbir Kapoor felt that if the ‘Besharam’ trailer came out during the festive releases of either ‘Chennai Express’ or ‘Once Upon A Time In Mumbai Dobaara’, then it would get lost in the crowd. Because of this, the trailer will now be released during a mega-event a week before either of the films release. The tentative date for the release of the trailer is now 2 August, 2013.

‘Besharam’ stars Ranbir Kapoor in a lead role and also features his parents Rishi Kapoor and Neetu Singh in pivotal roles. Javed Jaffrey plays the antagonist to Ranbir Kapoor’s rogue character. The film has a tentative release date of 3 October, 2013.
