Anurag Basu plans English version of Barfi


After the success of the movie ‘Barfi’ starring Ranbir Kapoor, Priyanka Chopra and Ileana D’Cruz, the creative mind behind the flick, Anurag Basu spoke about the future prospectives. When Asked Basu about his plans to reach to the non-Hindi audience, the director confessed that they are planning to put up an English version.

While talking about its non presence at the Toronto Film festival the film maker explained that they were too busy releasing the movie worldwide so could not take it to Toronto. But the people who had watched the movie have said that the movie has the potential to break the language barrier.
