The trailer of Ranbir Kapoor's forthcoming movie Besharam was launched on Tuesday, July 30. This first trailer of the film begins with Ranbir Kapoor singing 'Tujhe dekha to yeh jaana sanam' in Punjabi. However, this is not a romantic scene, instead the opening scene shows Ranbir urinating in the green mustard fields.
The trailer announces the introduction of Ranbir's character as Besharam Babli. Ranbir Kapoor is also seen showing off some 80s dance moves in his golden metallic outfit. Abhinav Kashyap has made sure to add humour in the action sequences as well. Besharam trailer brings forward some funny chasing scenes.
The lead actor of the film Ranbir Kapoor was not present at the launch of the trailer. The director Abhinav Kashyap had a quick explanation for Ranbir's absence. "This was not a pre-planned launch. Ranbir is in Sri Lanka and that is why he is not here," Kashyap said at the launch.
With all the clutter in B-town, each filmmaker tries to create space for their movie. Besharam is set to release on Gandhi Jayanti, October 2. So they have two months time for their promotion period. "We are roughly two months before the release of the film. This was a part of the promotion cycle. We begin our promotion campaign from tomorrow," the director said.
Talking about the title of the movie, Kashyap explained that the idea is to dispel negativity attached to the word.
The director also mentions 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," he said.
