The director of the movie, Abhinav Kashyap says that he is making fun of himself. "There was no glimpse of Salman Khan also. Chulbul is a name and it has come from me. So I can make fun of myself, I am not laughing at anyone else," Kashyap said at the first look launch of the film.
Meanwhile, Besharam's promotional trailer has kicked off with lead actor Ranbir Kapoor singing 'Tennu vekhya toh ye jaana sanam'. Kashyap says the song has been used to stress the point that it is a romantic film.
"Trailer begins with the Punjabi version of 'Tujhe dekha toh ye jana sanam' and there is no impression of Shah Rukh Khan. DDLJ (Dilwale Dulhania Le Jaenge) is a popular film, an image of love stories and I have used that image in my way because this is predominantly a masala romantic comedy. So that is just a platform to explain that it is a love story," the director explained said.
The director revealed that it was Ranbir who suggested his father's name. "I am excited to have all three of them in my film. I didn't know that Rishiji had never played a policeman in his entire career. I was so excited to have Rishiji and Neetuji play police personnel for the first time," Abhinav expressed.
The comedy film also stars Neetu Singh as an inspector in it. The lead actress in the film is Pallavi Sharda. She has made her Bollywood debut in a supporting role with Karan Johar's My Name Is Khan. Besharam is set to release on Gandhi Jayanti, October 2.
