New poster of ‘Bareilly Ki Barfi’ depicts three quirky characters under one roof

Here comes the new poster of ‘Bareilly Ki Barfi’. The poster depicts the three quirky characters Bitti, Chirag and Pritam Vidrohi under one roof. Rajkummar Rao who plays the dual roles of Pritam and Vidrohi shared the poster with the caption, “Chirag hai pyar ki खोज में, Bitti apni hi सोच में और हमारे सहमे से Pritam Vidrohi in a saree bina पेटी-कोट में। #BareillyKiBarfi #18thAugust”

Rajkummar said in a statement, “The moment I started reading Pritam Vidrohi, I was sold that I am doing this film. The kind of variation that Pritam has is very unique. It was one of the best narrations, and personally I prefer reading my scripts, but Nitesh sir is such an amazing actor himself and he knew his characters inside out.” (Also Read: How Kriti Sanon became the perfect UP girl for ‘Bareilly Ki Barfi’)

The movie revolves around a small town girl named Bitti played by Kriti Sanon who is too advanced for the city she lives in. One day she reads a book which is the exact replica of her own life. It is then that she decides to meet the author, who happens to be Pritam aka Rajkummar Rao. However, enter Chirag, a printing press owner who falls for Bitti and tells her that he will make her meet Pritam. But, he tells Pritam to enact like a bad person so that Bitti doesn’t like him. However, during all this enacting, Chirag and Pritam both fall for Bitti and the drama that ensues forms the rest of the story.

Director Ashwiny Iyer Tiwari spoke about Kriti’s character in the movie with a news agency. She said, “She is a very homely and simple girl. If you meet her in real life, you will understand that she is a simple, warm-hearted girl and not the diva that we all have seen so far. I observed her during the shoot, the way she talks to her mother on phone, the way she sat on the floor with folded legs and had puri sabzi with us…. She is way more different than the way she has been projected on the screen as a diva. Yes, there is no doubt that she is pretty, but she is a good actress too. After watching the film, people’s perception will change.”

She further said, “The film has been written by the director of Dangal (Nitesh Tiwari), directed by me, who delivered Nil Battey Sannata, produced by BR Pictures… Junglee Pictures studio has their name in the business. And the three actors have their fan following. So when these energies are coming together to create something new, magic happens (smile).”

Directed by Ashwiny Iyer Tiwari, written by Nitesh Tiwari, ‘Bareilly Ki Barfi’ stars Kriti Sanon, Ayushmann Khurrana and Rajkummar Rao in lead roles. The movie is slated to release on August 18, 2017.
