If Barfi! hasn’t caught your attention already, then catch up with it this week. By the looks of it, everyone who is remotely associated with the movie is extremely proud of their association.
And that includes Ranbir ‘Barfi’ Kapoor’s father Rishi Kapoor. A star in his own day and still the heartthrob of the generation that grew up swinging to ‘Om Shanti Om’, Rishi is proud of his son, but still feels he has a long way to go. Rishi feels that Ranbir does not play larger than life characters and sticks to stories about boys around the same age as he. Mother Neetu Singh and dad Rishi are supportive of their son’s moves but never interfere.
Ranbir’s co-star in the film, Priyanka Chopra, is on a high as well. Not only has her work as the autistic girl ‘Jhilmil’ been appreciated, she also released her debut single last week. While Jhilmil’s character required study, Priyanka says she owes a lot to Shah Rukh Khan, who lent her his notes on autism, collected when shooting for My Name is Khan. Priyanka mentions in a tweet, “Also thank you SRK for lending me all your My name is Khan research, you gave me perspective on Jhilmil..owe you another one..love always”. Pretty sweet, considering the two are not on speaking terms for a long time.
Looks like Barfi is proving to be a happy film for everyone!
