New Delhi: He turned up late by two hours but actor Ranbir Kapoor made it up to his waiting fans with an enthusiastic performance on song 'Phataphati' from his upcoming film 'Barfi' at a city mall in Gurgaon.
The 29-year-old actor along with co-stars Priyanka Chopra and Ileana D'Cruz performed on the song whose first few lines are in Bengali and the rest in Hindi.
"Since we kept you waiting for so long it's time that we should entertain you now. I appologise for the delay. I am getting to talk and sing so much after a year that I am ready to do anything for you people," Kapoor said.
This statement shows Ranbir Kapoor's enthusiasm ahead of the release of 'Barfi!' He is among those rare Bollywood actors who have shown a willingness for experimentation in their roles.
Last year's release 'Rockstar' proved his acting talent and demonstrated how slowly and steadily Ranbir is inching towards the superstardom. 'Rockstar' was not an easy role but he did it with such a perfection that the flawed acting by Nargis Fakhri was spared the criticism it deserved.
The film's music is soothing. Probably it's Pritam's best till date. The tunes are catchy and classy at the same time.
Priyanka Chopra is also playing a tough role this time. It's daring on her part too because the rat race in Bollywood doesn't allow the heroines to do anything other than the regular stuff.
A lot will depend on 'Barfi!' for Ileana D'Cruz, who is debuting in Hindi with this film. She is beautiful but her acting skills will be tested only on the film's release.
"When you are excited to do a film, you definitely look forward to a quick release as well. But when it takes longer than expected, it does bother you. It wasn't any different for me. When 'Barfi' was getting pushed ahead, it did throw me off a little initially. However, I consoled myself by thinking that whatever happens is for the best," she said.
'Barfi!' is also the comeback of director Anurag Basu, whose last film 'Kites' hadn't do much at the box office.
The viewers would just hope for another fantastic show from Ranbir Kapoor and Priyanka Chopra.(With inputs from PTI)
