Ranbir’s Besharam act irks SRK and Salman Khan fans
The trailer of Ranbir Kapoor starrer ‘Besharam’ has caused a stir online with fans reacting to the alleged digs against Shah Rukh Khan and Salman Khan made in the promo. The clip which has received close to a million hits online, sees RK crooning an off-key version of ‘Tujhe Dekha To Ye Jaana Sanam’ from ‘Dilwale Dulhania Le Jayenge’ (DDLJ) while urinating in mustard fields, a reference to one of SRK’s most popular reel moments. Another dialogue, “Naam Chulbul rakhne se, koi Dabangg nai banjaata,” has irked fans of the other Khan.
“Ranbir Kapoor mocking SRK in an iconic Tujhe Dekha song while peeing in the #Besharam trailer proves that he still needs to grow up. #crap (sic),” wrote BoldMonk while another member of the networking website, with the handle ‘King of Bollywood’, chimed in saying, “Ranbir copies SRK poise and Salman style. Both r impossible to do (sic).”
The film’s director Abhinav Kashyap, who had also helmed Sallu’s monster hit Dabangg explained the Khan connection at a press conference held to launch the film saying, “There was no glimpse of Salman. Chulbul is a name, and it has come from me. I can make fun of myself.” The filmmaker said that the DDLJ number opens the trailer so as to convey that the film is a romantic comedy.
