'Besharam' is the story of Babli (Ranbir Kapoor), a street smart car mechanic living in a Delhi orphanage. He is charming and lives life to the fullest. He also steals cars to support his orphanage. He has no sense of right or wrong till he unwittingly hurts the love of his life, Tara (Pallavi Sharda) and is chased by cop couple Chulbul Chautala (Rishi Kapoor) and Bulbul Chautala (Neetu Kapoor). Babli realizes that there is no right way of doing the wrong thing. He sets out to fix all the wrongs in his life and he continues to be shameless about it.
With no other big films releasing this Friday, Abhinav Kashyap's 'Besharam' has a clean week as far as competition goes. The Ranbir Kapoor-starrer is hitting theatres on October 2.
The film will be a litmus test for both actor Ranbir after superhit 'Yeh Jawaani Hai Deewani' and Kashyap post 'Dabangg'.
"Our expectations are huge. We have made a good film and have promoted it well," Kashyap told IANS.
'Besharam' also stars Ranbir's actor-parents Rishi Kapoor and Neetu Singh. Actress Pallavi Sharda, a newcomer who hails from Australia, plays the female lead in the film.
The film, produced by Himanshu Mehra, Sanjeev Gupta and Reliance Entertainment, had a shooting budget of Rs.60 crore plus the cost of promotions, marketing and advertising.
"We have locked about 3,600 screens in India and 700 screens overseas," said the director.
Whether the audience will accept Ranbir in deglam role or not, will only be revealed once the film releases.
