Ranbir Kapoor, who is often referred to as the Bollywood's next superstar clearly wants to become number one in the tinsel town. We recently saw Superstar Shahrukh Khan break all the Box-Office records with his movie Chennai Express. Ranbir will now beat one of the records set by SRK's Chennai Express with upcoming movie Besharam. Well, it looks like the game is on.
SRK had gone an extra mile by releasing Chennai Express
in 3500 screens in India and more than 700 screens abroad. He made
sure that his movie had the biggest Bollywood release ever.
However, Ranbir is not going to let Shahrukh hold on to this record
for much longer as he will very soon beat the actor in the numbers
game with Besharam which will be released in at least 3600 screens
in India. Besharam, which is distributed by Reliance
Entertainment will be the biggest release in Hindi film history
Utpal Acharya, the Distribution Head of Reliance Entertainment
was glad to confirm this news. "Besharam will be the
largest release till date, both in India and abroad. I am looking
at 3600 plus screens. I had planned for 4000 screens but Pawan
Kalyan's Telugu film Attarintiki Daredi which releases
today has a got a phenomenal response in advance booking. That
takes away some screens which I had planned in Andhra Pradesh,
Tamil Nadu, Karnataka and Kerala," Acharya said.
'More number of screens means more profit' has become the tactic
in today's film industry. Acharya seemed very happy with
Besharam. He said, "I am very confident of
Besharam, it is a full family commercial entertainer and
more the screens, more the revenue." Let's wait and watch if
Besharam will be a blockbuster at the Box-Office.

Ranbir Inspired By SRK?
It's interesting to notice that the trailer of Besharam
features Ranbir Kapoor singing SRK's hit song 'Tujhe Dekha To Ye
Jaana Sanam' in Punjabi. This song was a romantic one in SRK's
DDLJ but here it's a humourous scene as Ranbir is peeing
while sing. We wonder if this is a mock!!
In the movie Besharam, Ranbir plays the role of Babli,
a poor Punjabi guy. Ranbir found this unique name 'Babli' quite
Ranbir Not An Anti Hero
The director of the movie is Bahinav Kashyap. He tells us that
he is not trying to idealise any social message through the movie.
"He is not anti hero here. He is the hero amongst the masses and a
hero with whom everyone will relate to. I am not trying to
propagate any social message through my film. He is here to
entertain everyone, even a poor man, who is not educated," Kashyap
Explaining about the title, the director says,
"Besharam is a villainous word. I want to tell people the
right meaning of the word. I want to show that Besharam
can be positive."
Following Daddy's Footsteps
For the title song in Besharam, Ranbir will be seen in
an avatar similar to Rishi Kapoor's look from the 1980 movie Karz.
Ranbir dons a metallic golden outfit and shakes his booty.
We hear that Ranbir Kapoor has learnt Punjabi for the movie.
Besharam's tagline is 'Na sammaan ka moh, na apmaan ka
Pallavi Sharda, The Heroine
Pallavi Sharda is an Indian-Australian actress who made her
Bollywood debut in My Name Is Khan. She had played a
supporting role then. In Besharam, she has got the
opportunity to play the lead opposite Ranbir.
This is the first movie in which the Kapoor family - Rishi
Kapoor, Neetu Singh and Ranbir will be seen together in a
Katrina Not Chosen For Besharam
It was recently reported that Ranbir had suggested to the
director to cast Katrina as the leading lady in this film but
Kashyap did not agree to this.
Besharam will hit the theatres on Wednesday, October 2
and break the Friday norm. We will surely update you with more
updates on the movie. We wonder if this will be a big blockbuster
like Chennai Express.
