Abhinav then announced another mainstream film titled Besharam and Ranbir Kapoor has agreed to play the lead. The film was in the news about producers Viacom18 backing out of the project, though there is no official announcement from the production house in this regard.
Besharam is again in the news because of an Indo-Australian actor Pallavi Sharda being selected to play the lead opposite Ranbir. She is a graduate in Law and Media Communication from Melbourne University, and in Mumbai to find a career in films. She did small supporting roles in films like My Name Is Khan, Love Breakups Zindagi and Heroine.
According to sources, the film will go on floors in December.
