MUMBAI: Shahrukh and Deepika starrer Chennai Express set a record by booking 3,500 screens in India. And now Ranbir Kapoor's much awaited film Besharam is set to create a new record by releasing in 3,600 screens in India, leaving Chennai Express behind in the race.
This will make Ranbir Kapoor's comedy action drama the biggest release in Bollywood till date.
However, Reliance Entertainment distributor head Utpal Acharya is slightly disappointed since they were looking out for 4,000 screens but the Telugu movie Attarintiki Daredi which has already released had already gained popularity in Andhra Pradesh, Tamil Nadu and other southern states.
Besharam is slated to hit the big screens on a Wednesday i.e 2 October and will also star Ranbir's parents - Rishi Kapoor and Neetu Kapoor along with Pallavi Sharda playing the female lead.
