After the letdowns of the biggest releases of the year, the Ayushmann Khurrana – Kriti Sanon – Rajkummar Rao starrer Bareilly Ki Barfi seems to show some promise. What has got everyone intrigued is the Kriti’s character in the film, ‘Bitti’. As we learned from the trailer, Bitti is a rebel. The bold, vibrant, chirpy girl is often termed as outspoken too. The small town girl with big dreams is not the ordinary Bareilly girl. Bitti does break dance, smokes cigarettes and sometimes even drinks alcohol.
Kriti Sanon expressed her views on Bitti saying, “I completely love Bitti, she a little chhurrat, bindass, bratty.” Director Ashwiny Iyer Tiwari talked about how she got the Bitti out in Kriti Sanon, “I told her one thing, just be yourself, and just be as you are at home. How you stay, how you live, how you eat, the little things.” She further added how she got Bitti to be a simple girl, “We hardly made her hair. We told her if you have to go out and you just have to tie a pony tail, how would you do it. She showed how I said that’s exactly what you need to do in the film as well.”
Kriti further added, “The only problem in Bitti’s life is, she isn’t getting married. That’s not her problem, that’s her mother’s problem. She (Bitti) doesn’t want to just get married to anybody. She wants that one person who loves her the way she is.” Revealing what exactly Bareilly Ki Barfi is, the book, as well as the character, the actress, said, ” While she’s reading that book, that author is talking about a girl who is exactly like her. But he’s talking in a very good manner, in a very positive manner so she feels there’s at least somebody who feels that how0ever she is, she is good and that’s how the chase starts and the story unfolds.”
Bareilly Ki Barfi is a slice of life film with an unusual love triangle. The trailer of the film has got everyone hooked and the music of the film is winning hearts. Bareilly Ki Barfi brings to celluloid for the first time the team of Kriti Sanon, Ayushmann Khurrana, and Rajkummar Rao. The film is Ashwiny Iyer Tiwari’s second film as a director.
Bareilly Ki Barfi is scheduled to release on August 18, 2017.
