Call them by their character names: Anurag Basu

Call-them-by-their-character-namesAnurag Basu’s much talked about venture Barfee after getting delayed for quite a bit of time is in shoot mode now. The director known for films such as Murder, Life in a Metro has introduced a diktat on the sets of this Ranbir Kapoor, Priyanka Chopra and Ileana D’ Souza starrer.

The diktat is that all the unit members of the Barfee will be calling the lead actors of the film with their character names instead of their real names. If any one doesn’t call their character names by mistake there are chances of them receiving some penalty from the maker.

Apparently Anurag is very serious about this project and especially after the debacle of Kites he wants to prove a point to everyone. At the same time, Barfee being a demanding film with its two main protagonists playing the role of mentally challenged personalities it is evident for the actors to get into the skins of their respective roles.

So and so, the director has named the vanity vans of  Ranbir as Barfee, Priyanka as Jhilmil and Ileana as Shrita.

Well, this comes after Anurag had uttered Duggu [Hrithik’s pet name] for Ranbir during the early days of Barfee’s shooting.
