  • While Ranbir Kapoor attempts a new avatar with Abhinav Kashyap's Besharam, Pallavi Sharda doesn't look too promising in her first film as the lead heroine. ...

  • Abhinav Kashyap's second directorial venture seems reminiscent of his first one -  Dabangg - with similarly loud Babli (Ranbir Kapoor).

  • Besharam is yet another experimental role from Ranbir Kapoor.

  • Besharam stars Ranbir Kapoor, Pallavi Sharda, Neetu Singh, Rishi Kapoor and Javed Jafrey.

  • Ranbir Kapoor tries his hand at action in Besharam.

  • Besharam also has a song paying ode to Rishi Kapoor's Om Shanti Om (Karz) with Ranbir Kapoor donning his father's looks.

Abhinav Singh Kashyap's Besharam features Rishi Kapoor as Inspector Chulbul, a name that became popular after Salman Khan etched it in Dabangg. The director says that he is making fun of himself.

"There was no glimpse of Salman Khan also. Chulbul is a name and it has come from me. So I can make fun of myself, I am not laughing at anyone else," Kashyap said.

Meanwhile, the Besharam promo kicks off with lead Ranbir Kapoor singing Tennu Vekhya Toh Ye Jaana Sanam and Kashyap says the song has been used to stress the point that it is a romantic film.

"Trailer begins with the Punjabi version of Tujhe Dekha Toh Ye Jana Sanam and there is no impression of Shah Rukh Khan. DDLJ (Dilwale Dulhania Le Jayenge) is a popular film, an image of love stories and I have used that image in my way because this is predominantly a masala romantic comedy. So that is just a platform to explain that it is a love story," he said.

Besharam also features Neetu Singh and Pallavi Sharda, who made her debut with Karan Johar's My Name Is Khan. It is slated for an October 2 release.
