"The film arrives four months from now and it would be an acid test for Ranbir. The stakes have really gone up for him and if he scores a biggie there as well, it would not just mark a hat trick of huge successes after Barfi! and Yeh Jawaani Hai Deewani, but also challenge the five superstars, all of whom are on the other side of 40," says a senior filmmaker.
With Ranbir playing to the gallery yet again in Besharam, the sophisticated 'made for multiplex' image that he had gained after Rockstar and Barfi! is expected to be further broken.
"Moreover, this is the first time that he would be coming along with his parents Rishi Kapoor and Neetu Kapoor. When Amitabh Bachchan shared screen space with Abhishek Bachchan in Bunty Aur Babli, it was considered huge. Now with Kapoors coming together, especially with Sr. Kapoor enjoying the peak of his new innings, it would be nothing sort of epic," the filmmaker adds.
Guess with so much going in favour well in advance, Besharam could well turn out to be an event at the very start of the last quarter of the year.
