You may have seen Ranbir Kapoor as a boy-next-door, a playboy and even a rockstar. But what you're about to see now is definitely going to get a rather extreme reaction from you as the actor can now be seen dressed as a Bengali bridegroom.
Don't worry, he's not tying the knot but is, in
fact, donning the outfit for his role in the upcoming film Barfee. Ranbir plays a deaf and mute man, though his character is that of a happy-go-lucky guy and not a sad one.
Barfee is a romantic comedy directed by Anurag Basu and stars Ranbir Kapoor, Priyanka Chopra and Ileana D'Cruz in the lead roles. In the film, Priyanka Chopra plays a mentally challenged girl.

The title of the film was changed from the dark Silence to the sweet-and-cute Barfee. The film will now have as many as 10-12 songs, although the hero doesn't talk or speak.
It is set to release on July 13, 2012.
