Barfi actors Ranbir Kapoor and Priyanka Chopra play deaf-and-mute and autistic characters respectively, but they insist that the film is not about disability.
Ranbir Kapoor: "I would say that one should not associate this film with disability... this film is not about disability. It is a coincidence that these two characters are deaf, mute and one is autistic. But one will not feel that it is a disability film. It's about enjoying life, giving happiness, feeling love. It's a love story."
Priyanka Chopra: "When we meet differently-abled people, or people who are special, we have a view point that they have a dark, sorrowful life we feel bad for them, it is not a film about that. There are people who smile, laugh, fall in love, enjoy.. it's that side of their life. So it is not about disability."
Southern actor Ileana D'Cruz, who's making her Bollywood debut with Barfi!, says the film has been an amazing experience for her: "It's been a mix of everything; chaos, tonnes of hard work and emotions. It was loads and loads of fun."
Ranbir inspired from granddad Raj Kapoor's style
Remember Raj Kapoor’s legendary roles as a happy-go-lucky tramp in Awara (1951) and Shree 420 (1955)? And now, 57 years later, his grandson Ranbir Kapoor has taken pointers from his late grandfather.
