What are Ranbir Kapoor's expectations from Barfi!? The Bollywood heartthrob says the biggest reward would be if audiences appreciate the film by thronging the movie halls in large numbers.

Ranbir swept award functions with his role as a lovelorn singer in Rockstar last year, and going by the reviews the actor is likely to repeat the same for his performance as a deaf and mute boy in Barfi!.

Talking about his expectations from the film, he told IANS: "It feels good when you get an award. But for this, I really hope that people come to watch the film in large numbers. If the audiences see it and it is a hit, and makes a lot of money, I think that's the biggest award anyone can get."

With no dialogues and only expressions at work, the actor admits he enjoyed being a part of it.

"It was a great fun because there were no dialogues to learn. Anurag Basu was the director and I was always keen to work with. Even before he narrated the script to me, I had decided I wanted to work with him," Ranbir said.

"And today, I can say with lot of confidence and lot humility that he is the finest filmmaker to work with and I wish to do a film with him again," the 29-year-old added.

Barfi! has hit the screens Friday. It also stars Priyanka Chopra and Ileana D'Cruz.
