Irony cannot get more ironical than this! The gen-next heartthrob
Ranbir Kapoor is apparently all set to gain weight for Anurag
Basu's Barfee (which was earlier called as Silence).
Those in the know are aware of the fact that Ranbir's character
has been sketched on the lines of the legendary Charlie Chaplin.
But, if the market buzz is to be believed, then, the latest
addition is that Ranbir's character will also flaunt Mr. Bean's
moves. News has it that, while Charlie Chaplin was Anurag's idea,
Bean was Ranbir's brainwave. And in order to look the part, Ranbir
is all set to gain weight.
One can only 'weight' and watch to see if Ranbir really lives up
to the sweetness of Barfee.
