Ranbir Kapoor, Priyanka Chopra’s ‘Barfee’ will hit screens on July 13

The worldwide release date of Anurag Basu’s much-awaited Barfee has been locked down for July 13. The UTV Motion Pictures’ film  starring Ranbir Kapoor, Priyanka Chopra and Telugu star Ileana D’Cruz.  Barfee narrates the story of a young, cute but shrewd man whom girls adore. He is deaf and dumb, and like a “Chalu Chaplin“, said the production company in a press statement.  Priyanka plays an autistic girl in the film, while Ileana, in her Bollywood debut features as a translator and her character spans about 50 years.  Earlier, Ranbir said that though the subject of the film is sensitive, the film is not serious. “The treatment to the character and film is not serious at all. It is a romantic-comedy which has been set in 1970s. My character is very fun-loving (awaara types),” Ranbir said. Well, the Rockstar has had a good 2011 and we are definitely looking forward to his next.
