Ileana, who makes her debut in Bollywood with Barfi, has a lip-lock scene with Ranbir Kapoor in the film. It is not a passionate kiss one sees in erotic films but more of lovely smooch. Ileana went on record that she was comfortable doing the lip-lock scene as it was part of the script requirement.
Moreover, Ranbir Kapoor plays the character of a deaf-mute and so he does not have any dialogues in the film. But he is a prankster and does lot of funny things in this breezy romantic comedy written and directed by Anurag Basu.
Barfi also has Priyanka Chopra playing the role of an autistic person and a companion to Ranbir’s character called Barfi.
Anurag Basu had earlier made the films Murder and Gangster. He won Filmfare Award for Best Screenplay for the film Life In A …..Metro. He acted in Onir’s film I Am which won the National Award. His last film Kites starring Hrithik Roshan was critically acclaimed but did not do well at the box office.
Barfi is releasing on September 14.
