First stop for Ranbir Kapoor: City of joy

By Hindustan Times

Actor Ranbir Kapoor, who has shot a major part of his next, Barfi!, in Kolkata, has decided to kick-start the promotions of his film in the City of Joy. A trade insider reveals that the actor wants to explore Kolkata and connect with the local audience before his film releases. “Since the movie
is set in Bengal, he believes that while promoting it, he should concentrate on Kolkata,” says the trade insider.

Director Anurag Basu shares the same sentiment. “Kolkata plays a pivotal part in the film, which is why the city has a prominent place in the marketing plans. Ranbir and I are most keen to start our promotions with Kolkata,” explains Anurag. Ask him if he is giving priority to Kolkata over Mumbai and he says, “We will cover both the cities almost simultaneously.”
