Ranbir Kapoor, Priyanka Chopra and Ileana starring Barfi is doing exceedingly well at the box office and is improving its BO potentiality every day. The movie had got good ratings from the critics and is also in the Film federation short list for Indian nominations to Oscar. And now the director Anurag Basu had been toying the idea to make the English version on the movie to reach out non Hindi audience. The movie was screened in Pusan and Marrakesh film festivals. The only reason it isn’t at the Toronto Film Festival is because the makers were too busy releasing the film worldwide to take it to Toronto.
The makers are considering the idea of adding subtitles to the Hindi prints and will also dub the movie in English and release with some prints in selected areas.
